    10 days without sleeping bag or liner?

    So unexpectedly I now have 10 spare days between my Europe travels at the beginning of September.

    Sleeping bag with 45 (F) rating enough for April?

    I'm hiking my first Camino from Porto starting on April 10th. I'm trying to find a light, affordable, and warm sleeping bag. Do you think a 45-degree bag will be warm enough?

    Sleeping bags

    Hello - I am leaving SJPP in mid March and am unsure whether to take a sleeping bag - I have a silk liner and expect that I can just use the hostel's blankets saving quite a bit of room in my rucksack. I would welcome your advice.

    sleeping bag in April/May

    Hi all, my husband and I are planning to walk the Camino del Norte beginning in late-April. We're leaning toward bringing sleeping bags but I'm waffling because I've heard very strong opinions on both sides. I'm not sure if the discrepancy in opinion is due to different routes, different travel...

    A good idea . . . or not

    What do we think of this https://tinyurl.com/yan7sm4h I think it could be either quite cosy or unbelievably clingy. Does anybody want to take the plunge and try one out?

    Fleece or no fleece?

    Hi, I'm heading out of SJDPP in early October. I see on a lot of the packing lists to bring a fleece. I am not a big fan of fleece, wore one on the Inca Trail years ago and it drove me crazy because they feel so constricting to me, plus a lot of them are 3/4 zip/mock turtleneck which I am also...
