You would save more weight by just using a sleeping bag, man. These don't pack down any smaller than what a 10-15 degree down bag would pack down to. If you were going to use these and a down jacket together, you'd probably be looking at around 4+ lbs. of weight and all kinds of bulk. If you brought along a 15 degree down bag, you'd be looking at a sleek 2.5 lbs.

There are sleeping bag suits that you can wear made by a British company. Here's a link to their website.
