    Night temp for a sleeping bag liner

    I’m leaving in a week and the weather through the Meseta looks pretty cool at night 45 to 50°F. Is that too cold for a sleeping bag liner?

    Which should I take? Sleeping bag or liner?

    I know this has been discussed in the past, but I'm having trouble finding some of the older threads. My mom and I are walking the Norte from September 3 - October 15. Should we take a lightweight sleeping bag or just a liner? We're not wanting to take more weight than necessary and, although...

    Sleep sack for bed bugs

    Hola, I gearing up to start my 1st CdS and have seen people recommended sleeping bag liners to protect against bed bugs. Do these help or is it a myth? Should I add the extra weight of bringing one?

    Just a liner or sleeping bag? (Possible weather change)

    I’ve been planning to just bring a liner instead of a sleeping bag for my Camino Frances, which I’m starting in August 11, so I’ve been planning for very hot weather, (up to 40 degrees C by some accounts) rendering a sleeping bag unnecessary, or so I’ve heard… …but then, It might take me well...

    Sleeping Bag Compression Sack

    I just received my ultralight Enlightened Revelation APEX Sleeping Quilt. I have a 34L pack, and I’m looking for the best way to compress it so I can pack it inside to keep it dry. This quilt was not cheap! Thanks in advance!!!

    Sleeping bag or liner and blanket

    Hello veteran walkers! What was your preference for sleeping gear when you walked? Did you prefer a light sleeping bag or a liner with a blanket? I'm starting my first Camino (Frances) in late April but have been an avid backpacker for many years. I've used both "systems" depending on climate...

    Slippery quilt and sliding liner

    I don't sew much, and it seems there are many good sewers here, so I thought I'd ask for advice before I start on my bag and liner "upgrade". My slippery quilt (sleeping bag) slides off my bag liner; it will not stay put over the quilt for more than a few minutes. If I climb into the liner and...

    Sleeping bag in February-March?

    Hello! My husband and I are walking from Almería starting mid-February, and were wondering if it’s necessary to pack a sleeping bag. We’ve done other Caminos but always in warmer months and on more highly traveled trails where almost every place has blankets. I really try to keep the weight...

    Is a sleeping bag or a liner enough for the Camino in April?

    I'll be off on my first Camino this coming April. I'd like to know for those of you who have done the Camino this time of the year is it really necessary to lug around a sleeping bag and the liner as well or will the liner suffice? Also which products did you take with you if you chose to use one?

    Sleeping Bag?

    I’m starting the Camino Frances from SJPDP on April 3, ‘24. I’m on the fence whether to bring an ultralight sleeping bag since it could be near freezing this time of year. My thinking now is less is more. I do have a silk liner and some warm layers I could wear to bed. I’ll appreciate any...

    Perfect solution (I hope..) sleeping system

    Thanks so much to someone in here for this tips, can't find the thread. My sleeping bag (which I love) worked well last time, but a bit warm and too heavy. To reduce weight I have now done something (I hope!) will be a sucsess. Opened it all the way (also in the bottom) and layed it down. Then...

    Do I Really Need a sleeping bag on the Camino?

    Hi folks. My wife and I are walking the Camino Francis in late May till early July. We tried the summer sleeping bag tonight. Hers fits her but, mine is way too tight. She zipped me up in it and I was about to bust out of it. Once we stopped laughing we decided we needed to find another...

    Shorter walk. Sleeping bag?

    My husband and I are planning to do this walk in April/May 2024. It has been suggested that we need a sleeping sheet but not a sleeping bag. Any thoughts? We want to walk about 450 kms and want to finish in St Jean Pied de Port. We’d welcome suggestions on where to start our walk,
