Lol the two people giving advice are from Canada and Guam!
Seriously though thanks for the input guys.
I just do not want to find myself wishing I had a lighter weight setup come summer time. I had thought about utilizing my synthetic bag or the fleece liner (which is what I use in the heat of the summer) but part of this switch over for me was cutting down weight. With the changes to my gear I am planning to make it should put me around 8-10 lbs base weight.
Anyways thanks for the input guys!
