Approaching 4lb barrier
I did that once. Strung a rain jacket across the opening of a 5x7 tarp in half-pyramid shape. It didn't give me as much coverage as I thought, but I'm very small, and have a small rain ja...

Another Option
I have bad ankles. I use trail runners but bring along an ankle wrap in case I have problems. Still less weight than boots, and more comfortable!

Therm-a-Rest Neoair
I've used this pad in 3-season conditions and it will get you down to freezing easily. It's very comfortable, light, and compact. About as comfortable as a Big Agnes Air Core, but a little l...
