Instead of sleeping bag, I brought the below. I put my liner between the sheet. It keeps you toasty warm and almost weightless, cost around $6.I am starting the camino from Sarria next Saturday (May 11th). I am unsure about whether to take a sleeping bag or just a sleeping bag liner. Thoughts please?
For the GR65 Compostelle (2016), Camino Del Norte, and Camino Primitivo (2017), and Stevenson GR70 (2018) that I walked in April, May, August, and September I used a small size Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Mattress and a 30 degree Katabatic quilt style sleeping bag (a 40 degree quilt would do fine). The matress weighs 8 ounces and the down quilt weighs about 18 ounces. This way you can sleep on the albergue or gite floor anywhere or even outside if there is a shortage of beds, plus you can inflate the mattress, then place it on a bed therefore adjusting the bed to your exact sleeping requirements. The quilt, unlike a sleeping bag is more adjustable and versatile should you find it too warm plus it will keep you warm should you need that. The blankets at albergues and gites are used by thousands of people. They were always clean but .... you never know. On most stays, there was only one blanket per bed. I slept on the blanket that covered my air mattress and covered myself with the quilt. A good night's rest is absolutely the most important thing you need after a long day of trekking.I am starting the camino from Sarria next Saturday (May 11th).
