Also how do you like the OR backcountry organizer?  I've been looking at that for awhile, pondering if it's actually worth the $$.

You have it listed at 5oz, which is surely not correct?  Is it actually 5 oz??
I own a couple small, sit pad size z lites, I like the full size. Extra insurance on not popping a pad and if it does happen, one guy can sleep on 2 z lites pretty dang cozy.
Pretty sure the 5 oz is accurate. I ran all the contents of it in a KU medium pullout for quite a few years and when it finally fell apart, I made the switch. It's probably the only part of my kit I really like the finite organization in. Imo, itsceasily worth its weight

I like having the foam around camp and glassing but I'm not sleeping on just that

Winterlite AND the z-lite is a pretty darn toasty pad setup.  You mentioned this being for summer bear, so maybe you'd be fine with just the winterlite? 

Have you seen the Thermarest Z-seat?  I use that for glassing, and at $15 and 2 oz, it's hard to beat...

It may seem crazy, but a few trips into the woods with a popped pad will usually change your opinion.

That being said itís extremely versatile.  It allows for comfy naps and allows you to stretch out on wet ground without getting soaked.

Once I started packing it, Iíve never stopped.

The extra ďjacketĒ is no worse then a mid layer.  Itís certainly not a jacket in the traditional sense 🤷‍♂️

I donít see cigarettes on your list. WTF over...
