A good sleeping system can be your last defense. If the weather turns really
cold, the last refuge is to hunker down inside a dry spot with all our
clothing on and go to your bed.
|Weight in Ounces
Down blanket with waterproof shell ant the
ability to convert to a sleeping bag. Home made stuff sack.
||Equinox 7 x 15 Sil Nylon Stuff sack
||Seam sealed with silicone sealant.
I also keep it in a trash compactor bag to keep it dry.
||Car Windshield Sunscreen
||Heat reflector - I use a car sunscreen that has a reflective surface
and moderate padding. It wouldn't be effective as a ground pad because the heat
would transfer through because of conduction, and the padding is so thin it
wouldn't make any difference in comfort. I use this in my hammock because it
prevents heat loss through radiant heat loss, and I can use it a s a
sitting/lounging pad when eating and cooking. It is the lightest option at 5oz
for the 2.25'x5'
||Silk mummy liner
||Home made silk liner, very comfy and adds
warmth to your sleeping system.
||Ozark Trail 1/2" egg crate
Found at Wal-Mart. These blue pads with an Egg Crate Pattern are 24" wide
instead of the normal 20" wide. I trimmed it down from 72" to 68".
