Sleeping bag - to bring or not to bring.....


New Member
That is the question. I´m starting from SJPP on 17th September and intend to get as far as Logrono (maybe further?) and simply can´t decide what to do about a sleeping bag. I´ve got a very light one (just under a kilo) but as we know, every gram counts. Are blankets freely available in the refugios or would it be advisable to take a sleeping bag?

Bring one, especially should you have some rainy misty (cold) days (in the Pyrenees), you will be happy to have a warm and cosy bed after your daywalk.
Every kilo counts, yes, but you should not "spare on the wrong end" (VERY free translation of a german saying).
Good, comfortable shoes and sleeping comfort are so very important - in both (shoes and sleeping bag) you will pass a big part of your 24h...
