When you hunt a long way from your vehicle and you want to go lite here is what I do. Wally world sells these almost wieghtless fleece blankets in camo patterns. I roll mine up and put it in my pack and when I get in my tree or blind I just wrap my legs and feet in it. Not near as bulky as a pair of bibs or coveralls, works great.

Last year I tried something that seemed sumb to me. I took a sleeping bag with me to my ladder stand. Once there, I unzipped the sleeping bag and got in it and pulled it to my waist and zipped it up. I was rather surprised how much it helped.

I have an old sleeping bag I've carried with me a few times and done the same thing. I've even used it to lay down on the snow covered ground on a terrace.

I had my Mom stitch a couple of cheap camo fleece blankets from Walgreens and make a sack out of them. Warm and alot easier to pack than a sleeping bag, but if I had a big enough stand you'd find me with a sleeping bag everytime.

Since I don't have a lot of body fat I get cold pretty quick. I've found that nothing, and I mean nothing works better than good old fashioned wool. I went to the Army Surplus store and bought a HEAVY green/gray colored wool shirt and wool pants for $15 for the pair. They work very well for me.
Yesterday, when I got to where I was hunting, it was colder than most of the state. It was 34 freezing degrees. Out came the wool. Of course the downside is that by 11am, I'm starting to get too toasty warm, and it all has to come off.
I carry a collapsible camoflauged backpack that I stuff the wool into when it gets too hot.
