I wouldn't rely on it, especially on less regulated routes or in 'odd' places like monasteries (Combreces for example) or quirky places like Benevent L'Abbaye in France.

I also always use my old keffiyeh, bought in Syria when we lived there during the 70's. It's treadbare, but soooo useful. Pillowcase, neckscarf for walking so as to protect the neck from sun, etc., something to sit on sometimes. It's easy to wash and dries in no time. Something else that I always take along is a pair of shoulder pads, worn under T-shirt to protect my boney shoulders from the chaffing of the backpack straps. Anne
