  1. Oversized upper garments for trapped air is good insulation. I always keep a 3XL long sleeve T shirt as under shirt insulation and anti-pest biting insect protection (pro-tip: sleeves long enough to cover hands helps !) in my pack. Headnet for sleeping also ups the temperature, trapping heat.

  2. My kid took my M-1952. It was an XL and too big for me anyway. Fits him well. Something else you might want to look for is the USN CPO jackets. Heavy wool, dark blue that is almost black. I still have that. Fits more like a heavy duty shirt than the M-1952.
