    I envy you. I wish I could get out more. Hopefully in the near future I will be able to. At least as soon as my boss transfers my trainee to 3rd shift

    I used the Nest and No Sniveller initially. As the night went on and the hurricane like winds proceeded, I got out my 3/4 length 3/8 inch pad (cut 6 inch triangles on all corners). I was very toasty. Clothing worn: Smartwool zip shirt as base layer. Lightweight polypro top over that. Lightweight polypro bottom over my nylon shorts. -40 Wigwam wool socks, Campmor power glove liners (awesome gloves. Weigh only 1.4oz) Wigwam thermolite base cap. Will be getting heavier weight polypro bottoms as I was a little cold in camp the next worning. I also need a Balaclava as my face was a little cold. I pulled the NS over my face and this helped. The No Sniveller as a coat (ala Eastwood) worked like a charm over my extra large rain jacket.

    Those Sportsmans Guide 50 degree bags cant be beat for the money. I have two of them for warmer weather.
