    I'm am also looking at a down jack and down pants combo along with the escape bivy (the breathable one) or just a light sheet of some kind. The foot box thing is also a concern. but wool sock may fix it.Also REI sells some Duck down camp booties for $40, no weight listed.http://www.bentgate.com/western-moun...dID=334--FHBOT Let us know what you do I'm curious if it will work out. The easy in and out and staying warm for a midnight run to the nearest bush would make this a nice upgrade.
