HI! I will be starting my Camino on the 12th of Sept 2018 from Pamplona - In my final packing am questioning whether or not to pack my 2.2lb 1KG sleeping bag/ 0 Celsius
I sleep cold and am planning on mostly doing private alburgaes and hostals-
I look forward to your guidance and input...and yes, truly excited, cannot sleep or sleep thinking of the Camino, wake up same- thinking of the Camino :)
All good!
Buen Camino!!

Hi, Earther,

I'm not easily cold but even in the summer I carry 250g sleeping bag (bought for 9,95€). If you plan to sleep in private accommodation I wouldn't bring such heavy sleeping bag as yours, maybe just a liner?

Buen Camino!

Well, all I can tell you is that I start a couple of weeks behind you, and I’m taking mine. This will be my fifth Camino - in the last four, I’ve taken my sleeping bag for three of them, and needed it about as many nights as I didn’t. Thst’s a fair few nights I would have been chilly without it...

It's my first Camino- I appreciate your thought and comment on this.
I guess the sleeping bag better get packed :)

Thanks again!

You can always post it to yourself in SDC if it weighs you down, Buen Camino!

I’ll be 9 days later than you. I’m taking an 800g bag. Being cold at night is the pits. I’d rather not carry the 800g but I figure, by Pamplona I will have lost that weight off my person. So I then get the bag for free!
Yeah, that's the alternative way to see things :D

I took my 2.1 lbs. (935g) sleeping bag when I walked the Camino Frances in Sept and Oct of 2015. I’m glad I did. I don’t sleep cold, but I liked having a known quantity to snuggle down into each night. It took some of the strangeness out of sleeping in a different bed each night. I know I slept better as a result. I’ll bring the same sleeping bag when I walk the CF again this coming Feb and Mar. Of course, then I’ll likely need it for warmth as well as the comfort factor.
