    Title says it all.  I have an AmStaff mix, smooth and short hair so you can see skin)  After fiddling around with different systems due to weight and compressibility, this is what I have tried. I know Ryan had posted a discussion on this topic a few years back, is it relevant still?.

    I have used with a foam mat (R2) with the following:

    1- Chukit, with a blanket 30 oz.  and not very compressible

    2- Wilderdog Sleeping bag 28oz and Ruffwear Stumptown Jacket About 40 oz. total and not compressible enough.  My Dog loves the bag though.  It really is a well made bag.

    3- Latest permutation is the Whyld River Sleeping bag ( https://whyld-river.com/collections/sleeping-bags/products/whyld-rivers-ul-sleeping-bag-liner ) and Hurtta body warmer suit ( https://www.hurtta247.com/product-page/body-warmer ).  It come in at about 17 ounces total.  It also compresses nicely and takes up about half of a 8L dry bag.  He carries all of his stuff.

    If it gets super chilly Dan Timmerman is manufacturing a 36×30 Climashield blanket (Spec’d for 8 oz or less) to use.

    What do you have to say?  I would love to hear ideas.

    BTW, Mods stated that they will open up a pet forum provided they get more participation.  I haven’t seen one on here so I emailed them.

    Less than ten ounces including pad. Baffled 900 goose down with waterproof inside fabric.

    The dog pictured has slept warm down to 0°F with removable Apex winter cover, and he has a total of 30 nights probably. He gets cold at home below 70°F so this comes along even in summer

    Pepper is using the Nunatak sleep system with great success. During a 100+ mile snowshoe trip across the bob last year I had to throw a hot water bottle in with her to dry her out one night. She is also using a cut to fit z lite pad that doubles as a lunchtime sit pad for me.

    I went the body warmer/ bag route so he has something to wear when it’s cold and he is out and about.
