This will be my first time at BM. From what I've read it does get very cold at night, and many suggest bringing a "winter" sleeping bag. Mine's only suitable for summer camping so I'm looking into getting a new one. Just looking for suggestions on what temperature rating I should be looking at. A quick search says the low near BRC tonight is 58 (14 degrees C), which isnt exactly winter temp.
Also, I get cold veeery easily.
I sleep cold too.
A problem is most temperature ratings seem to have little to do with reality.
Check out feathered friends liners and overbags, and they have a really great rectangular bag.
It can get really cold, maybe down to the wind.
I've been warmer sleeping in the snow before.
Of course, it could be a warm week with no serious cold, and it warms up quick at dawn.
When I've had flexible shade, I've let the tent warm up in the afternoon to prepare for the evening.
Fleece liners are available most stores and they add a little warmth, and protect the bag from dust.
