Well, to get in the spirit of things, I stopped in the thrift store to see what I could find.

I did see a pair what looked like synthetic hiking pants,but they were 80% cotton.

After searching for about 20 minutes, I couldn't even find a pot. Then...

I ran across a down quilt with 1180 grams of fill for $11.95. The size is 86 x 64. Total weight is about 3 3/4 pounds. (I'll have to get it to the post office to see for sure.)

I think it would be plenty warm down to the 30's. I'll have to test it out. Maybe I could use the fill to make a sleeping bag in the future.
