I carried a jacket and a warm head cover to wear while we glassed. And of course, good rain gear for when you need it.
I switched pants mid week and shirts every 2 days. All depends on how much weight you are allowed. Is this a fly in hunt?

We also had a couple freak rain showers.
I would have more warm gear than cold gear but be prepared for some cold weather. Follow the weather right before you leave to really guide your choices.
All I can say is be in shape. You might get lucky and score early but if not you will have to hike. The country I hunted was a mix of easy and ridiculously difficult because of the tuckamore.
Good luck! Who you going with?
When given the choice I would rather take a softshell AND rain gear, however when space is at a premium and there is a good chance I'll be living in my rain gear, I like to go with a piece that can do both. For me, the Cold Front can do it all and was made for places like the Pacific North West and Newfoundland.
I would take a pair of regular hunting pants and a pair of pants that can double as rain gear. Take a couple baselayers and a good mid layer. (I'll be using the new Sitka Core layers with a Merino Mid layer and a Sitka Travers Mid Layer)
Don't skimp and take good stuff. It can make or break the hunt.
I always take and use two pairs of boots!
