Topic - Adding warmth to my sleeping system
| by - George Fisher on - 30 Oct 2012
|I have a fairly old ME Lightline sleeping bag that is rated to -5. I get cold in it at about 0 to -2/3 degrees. |
I use an alpkit slim airic mat only 2.5 cm thick (R2.5?) I have a thicker thermarest but its pretty bulky.
I'd like to do some winter camping/biviing. And want to improve my system.
I could go with a new bag like a snowline for about £300. Or a Exped downmat 9 (R8)for £115 or add a silk liner and a foam mat under my current mat for £50 ish (R??).
How much warmer is a Downmat going to be over my current mat? It's hard to put R values into degrees of comfort.
Any experience to share? Clearly I want cheap, warm and light, but I realise I can't have all of these. I'd like to be comfortable down to -10 ish.
