After contemplating how scary frost bit could be, I ended up getting the REI switchback gloves. http://m.rei.com/mt/www.rei.com/product/825261/rei-switchback-gloves
Im guessing I added about 5 or 6 lbs in clothing, gloves, socks, additional evazote sleeping pad, and extra fuel. I'm finding that ultralight winter backpacking is not so light in my case. Is that just the reality or am I doing something wrong?
For 3 seasons, I can usually pull off about 31lbs for a week with food and water.
Haven't weighed it yet, but I'm guessing I'm now at 36 or 37lbs for only 2 nights!
