BD Trekking poles
The previous poster is correct; the BD's have little in the way of adjustment. It's just whether the lock is engaged or not, so 2-4 inches. They are the correct height for a Golite Shangr...

Insulation only?
Patagonia had some nice insulated shells for $120 (from $299). They might be a better deal. How cold is it going to be? Are you looking for insulation or an insulated shell?

Golite prices

No down?
I hike in my down sweater and down coat often at those temps (really, anything from 40-0F is pretty common). If you're worried about moisture, a breathable shell would take care of it.
