Wow, thanks for all the responses.
Mark, it is 32 oz. Dunno what I was thinking. Re: the comb, I haven't used one since '95. Figured this trip would be the perfect opportunity to let my hair grow out, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to adjust to actually having hair long enough to require one. The only reason for the blue pad is extra insulation. Forgot about the watch, my Eco-Drive started acting funny a couple of months ago and have been using the cell phone since, good catch. I read about some "just add water" baby wipe thingies, most likely wouldn't hurt. Never been in the habit of using lip balm except after it's needed, not sure if that's a cycle I'll be able to break.
I can't wait for the temps to drop so I can fine tune some of this stuff. I'm usually an extremely hot sleeper. Domesticated animals curl up next to me for warmth (I kid you not). Part of my sleep system is depending upon the bag liner (meant to highlight that yellow, haven't bought it yet), the bivy (with reflectex bottom), and the polartec bib. The bib is hands down the greatest piece of cold weather gear I've ever owned, my only concern is that it might work too well during active conditions. I'm comfortable working in it the 20's wearing it, carhart's, a cotton polo, ball cap, and a slicker. 30 and above, I just use the slicker and the ball cap. If it doesn't work out after some test runs, I'll probably give the midweight top a shot.
I never wear rain pants unless it's in the low 30's and it's raining buckets, but I was thinking that a superlite pair would stand the limited use, and give me something to wear while washing my regular clothes. Would a ponchotarp provide enough coverage to keep me out of jail, and make a lightweight replacement for the regular tarp?
I've never used gaiters (even doing SAR in the snow), but I have yet to go hiking in trail runners either. I generally wear work boots (at work and not at work). I figured the gaiters would be necessary to keep out debris, are they a YMMV type thing?
Oh, when the ptarmigan bivy becomes available, I'm planning on getting the bug netting option. I just figure out about a month ago that the dreaded "black flies" are the same thing as horse flies. No bueno. I can tolerate mosquitos, but the idea of swarms of horseflies is testing my resolve regarding hiring a Terminex guy as a sherpa.
Thanks for all the tips, and if anything else comes to mind, please let me know.
