- Nov 21, 2004Craig, if you are sleeping direcly on the "cheepie blue egg crate
pad" then it's no surprise you are doing okay at those temps. Rick
has had really good results with his closed cell Target pads. The
Supershelter system is a bit different however, the insulation is
hanging under you. In the attempts I've made so far, I slept in long
cotton pants, socks, fleece booties, t-shirt, and a light weight
fleece jacket covered by my 40 F modified sleeping bag/now quilt.
Top of me was not the problem. I did not eat right before and I did
not have anything on my head but I was sleeping on a little down camp
pillow. Don't know if I'm a cold sleeper.

> What are you wearing for clothing during these "cold" nights? Ican get to 40F with just a cheapie blue egg crate pad, sleeping bag
and a wool blanket. I had to wear long johns just once on the
coldest night. Are you a cold sleeper? Do you make sure you eat
something before you go to sleep to keep your metabolism going? That
also helps keep you warm at night. Take care........Craig
