    Hi all fellow pilgrims and walkers. As you all know by now I will be doing the Primitivo in September. Now I was wondering if a liner would be sufficient. Found this one here and I would like your opinions on this...

    Sleeping Bag April/May

    I am trying to figure out the sleeping bag situation for the camino. I bought a sleep sack and did a trial run by sleeping in my house. I used a silk liner inside the sleep sack....I was freezing. I tested the sack in October and it was much warmer in my house back then than it is now. I...

    Emergency Sleeping Bag & Liner combo? Lightweight options

    Hi All! Being the OCD lightweight packer I am, I'm in the process of accumulating my camino gear, even though I'll be starting at the beginning of October. I only plan to do about 3 weeks worth (100-200km from Pamploma, bus to Ponferrada or Sarria, and continue on to Santiago), and most likely...

    Sleeping bag question, Camino Frances in April

    Hello! I will be walking the Camino Frances from 4th April to 13th May in 2016. I have trouble choosing the right sleeping bag to take with me to the Camino. What kind of temperatures to expect during the spring at night? Will all of the albergues provide blankets? I have one light sleeping...

    sleeping bag on VdlP

    Necessary for a May/June walk with the intention to use albergues rather than other accommodations where possible???? I sleep cold so I take one even in July, but my kids are hot sleepers so they have been fine with two silk liners in the past on other routes, but I don't want them to freeze if...

    Sleeping Bag?

    I plan to do the Camino starting in late April 2016. I have been advised to go with a silk sleeping bag liner instead of carrying the extra weight of a sleeping bag. Apparently the silk keeps you warm enough. Would appreciate other thoughts on this option.

    Warmth of sleeping bag needed?

    I will be walking the Camino towards the end of September and through October. How warm of a sleeping bag is needed for this time of year? I know that not all of the pilgrim refuges are heated, yet I still want to try to carry a lightweight sleeping bag. Thank you!! :)

    Sleeping bag + mattress cover = no bed bugs?

    Hi There, I plan to bring a down sleeping bag for my walk starting late September (I often get cold at night so am playing it safe with the bag). However, I don't like the idea that if I get warm and unzip my big, I will be welcoming bed bugs to join me. I already plan on treating my bag with...

    Sleeping Bag September October

    I'll be walking mid September to late October. Looking at two sleeping bags. Both ultralight and very compressible but one is lighter, rated to 45F, and costs less and the other is rated to 32F, costs more, and a bit heavier but still very light. Given temps at night, do I need to go with 32F...

    Question about sleeping bag weights.

    I have been trying to find the lightest sleeping bag that is not very expensive or confining. I do not need a very warm bag as I will be walking Sept-Oct this year and tend to be a warm sleeper anyways. I am pondering the The North Face Dolomite 2S Sleeping Bag...

    Allright, who has the lightest sleeping bag ;)

    So, I know there are many many threads on sleeping bags. I've spent time in all of them. However, with the rate new gear comes out, I figured it might be okay to bring up the discussion again. I had been planning on a backpacking quilt.... 16 ounces, 40 degrees, packs up small like a...
