Wondering if your 'active insulation' might need a tweak?
I would have thought chucking on that very heavy fleece over a heavy merino shirt to walk would be too hot, unless it's below freezing- if the wind got up for example ....or do you plan on using the raincoat as a boost?
I'd go a lighter fleece/s (one or two Alpha tops maybe) with your static jacket myself if the temps are roughly what I think they might be.
Save a lot of space, be lighter and give you more modularity options for both active and static.
Heavy as sticks-it's pretty flat isn't it? Could save nearly half a kg with some CP3s?
That DD tent-are you being a bit 'hopeful' on delivery next month? Might be wise to have fallback option?
Whatever you decide have a great time. Look forward to some pics.
