Winter walking and condensation on sleeping bag issue

Bushwalking gear and paraphernalia. Electronic gadget topics (inc. GPS, PLB, chargers) belong in the 'Techno Babble' sub-forum.

TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Problem was too that I felt a bit cold for a good part of the night. I didn't have much of a say in my campsite location as I was in a caravan park. Ah well, it's a learning experience. More strategies to try and better campsites to find.

Try wearing a light set of wicking thermals when you use the VBL. They can help to transport, or at least distribute, some of the moisture inside the liner.

That way, you can progress onto the next problem of having damp sweaty thermals and being too bloddi hot ! :lol:
