019 – The Sleep System: getting a good nights sleep

Show Notes: Episode 019 - The Sleep System

In this episode we focus on the sleep system needed for a good nights sleep on the trail. Choose the correct system and you’ll have a warm and comfortable sleep, night after night. Choose the wrong system and you will be miserable at best and at worst it may be dangerous depending on the conditions. The episode starts with a general overview of the sleep system that consists of three main parts before discussing each of them in turn:

  • The sleeping bag:
    • Sleeping bag comparison rating (EN13537 standard)
    • Down v synthetic
    • Sleeping bag shapes
    • Zip styles
  • The sleeping pad
    • R ratings
    • Types
  •  The clothes you wear to bed
