My snow camping setup is a short Downmat 7 plus my blue ensolite square (and my pack). If I feel like more, I'll take the full-length z-lite instead of the ensolite. The r-value on the Downmat is through the roof.
The cheap way to do it is pick up a full-length ensolite ($25 at REI) and take that and the z-lite. Not heavy, but you gotta find places to strap both to your pack--which is obviously a pain.Originally Posted by basinbeater

When I used to do a lot of snow camping we used to lay one of those mylar space blankets on the tent floor. It's amazing how much difference it makes.
