I am still debating clothing for my trip into the snow (Australia, Our winter is your summer ???)
Could get down to 20°F or a little lower at night.
I'm just unsure regarding my clothing layers for camp.
I don't own a thickly insulated down jacket but I do have two Montbell inner jackets, One half sleeve, one normal jacket.
The clothes I would take and wear in camp are:
-190gsm merino base layer
-100wt polarfleec top
-Montbell UL inner jacket (medium)
-Montbell UL half sleeve inner jacket (Large, fits over other items without killing any loft)
-Montane featherweight wind smock
-I'll also have my eVent packa
-Underarmor compression type boxer pants
-200gsm merino base layer
-custom goosefeet down 2/3rd pants, 2.5oz 800fill (The finish about 2" under my knee cap)
-Montane featherlight wind pants.
-I'll also have my hiking pants, Columbia Tiatainium and also some MLD sil rain chaps
I'm certain my legs will be fine as I've plenty of layers and those down pants are WARM...
What concerns me is the level of insulation I'll have for my upper body.
Do you think the layered jackets will suffice or should I be looking at a better, more lofty jacket. Obviously I could shave some weight with a single jacket but I'd like to use what I have if possible.
