How does your Jam2 weigh 9.6oz? These packs are 20-25oz from GoLite. Did you do some impressive chopping?

You've got a pound between your gloves and mittens. This seems excessive. Since you're just doing day trips I would only bring one of these.

The 'loong' 5oz scarf seems impractical since most of it just hangs there. A neckwarmer would do the same function for much less weight, but it also wouldn't flap in the wind with so much class.

Why do you need two hats for a day trip?

Do you need crampons?

Glove/Mitten weight is up there but i generally find myself climbing quite a bit and the gloves provide more dexterity but less warmth... and keeping warm dry hands is far easier with both pairs...

perhaps if i had a pair of gloves warm enough to rival my current mitts i could loose the second pair

Yeah a balaclava would do the trick but...

“To do a dull thing with style-now THAT'S what I call art.”
Charles Bukowski

so the tweed scarf rocks on for now

two hats for temp regulation but I suppose one would take care of my needs... so one it is

Definately need crapmons...

I have microspikes and use em when possible.
