I am planning a backpacking trip in Colorado for the 2nd deer season at 7,000 to 10k ft. I am using a floorless tipi with a stove. My sleeping bag is a 2012 mountain hardware synthetic 0 degree bag. It weighs around 3 lbs 9 oz. I know I need a new sleep pad for winter camping. I am upgrading to a thermarest xtherm. Should I upgrade my sleeping bag or run what I have? I am thinking the hot tent will be more than warm enough to use what I have. I have backpacked many times with a regular tent into the 30-40s with a one man tent , same bag and r value 1 sleep pad. Thanks for any advice.
