    Fleece does get caught in the tongue a bit, but handles better in moist conditions...not that I would know too much about that. So long as the down stays in the ripstop it shouldn't cause cotton mouth.

    Thanks for catching my mistake.

    Loose, thick wool socks (I've switched over to Wigwam brand, and I'm pretty happy with 'em so far). Keep them in your pack during the day and only throw them on at night.

    Ok so had a chance to try out some advice that HF Mems provided on this thread, first thank you all for the info. As for keeping the piggies warm this is what worked best the night in question. Temp was 36F which is not too cold but I'm already hurting by the time it goes down into the 30's. I had a base sock out of poly and a thick SmartWool sock over it. TQ and Reflectix were used in conjunction with a HG 3/4 UQ. Finally I wrapped the foot box area with my synthetic down outer layer jacket. Let's see if some colder temps hit this way and I can still stay comfy with this system....

    I would have a nice pad and fold it up and put some reflectix in the middle (the one with bubbles) then I would have some hand warmers in my footbox.
