My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Doubling pads
I agree with Konrad, I don't see why you couldn't. The only thing I would be concerned about though would be keeping the air pads stacked on top of each other throughout the night... In ...

Another plus one on the GooseFeet Down Socks and Overbooties. They are great, and I am very happy with them. Very glad I shelled out the $$ as I feel that they are very worth it...

You could look at the ZPacks rain mitts. They are a bit smaller than my MLD rain mitts. Also, if you email ZPacks first, they may be able to make them a bit more custom.
