Some great suggestions have been given about changing ALL your clothes to
avoid perspiration dampness. Even if they feel dry to you CHANGE THEM.
Wearing two pair of socks is over-dressing and will usually make you sweat.
Don't forget putting a plastic layer under your sleeping bag will deflect
You'd be amazed at the added warmth from a knit hat and pair of gloves.
Most of your body heat is loss through your head, hands, and feet. The
only thing you need to leave exposed is your face for breathing!
Sometimes adding a sheet can make a big difference in the warmth of your
sleeping bag, as well as filling any air pockets for a sleeping bag that's
too large. Fold the bottom under, or place your clothes for the next day
in the bottom to fill any air space.
