what he said...i can take my gear down to its rating in my underwear.i would trust this because ive experimented in a controled situation close to my car for safety.i eat a chunk of cheese before bed to fuel the stove for the night.learn hanging skills to be out of wind, well fed ,learn to dry gear.warmth is not universal ,what works for me might freeze you.dry your clothes before you try to sleep in them,i feel most are cold because they sleep in the same clothes they hike in making them deal with a wet layer, robbing their body heat trying to evaperate their sweat layer.
