    I always bring a knit stocking cap, this will keep the heat in a night when sleeping. You loss alot of body thru the top of head……….

    Great tips, I have also heated water then pour into Nalgene bottles to keep inside the sleeping bag.

    Always change your clothes(all of them) before going to bed. Fleece pants and heavy wool or fleece socks get you started off right in the sack. I also wear a poly/wool blend shirt and maybe a lightweight fleece shirt/jacket. A fleece beanie or balaclava “tops” it all off.

    Another warm-comfort at night is to have an extra fleece jacket that you stuff with clothes or your travel pillow.

    “….sweating is always better than shivering at the campsite”? This is the exact opposite of good advice. Keeping dry is the key to keeping warm.

    I always use a ground mat under me and have a small catalitic heater just in case the temps get so low that some extra heat is needed in a hurry. I do not burn it over night in a tent even though they are supposed to be safe??
