Re: Good sleeping bag for sailing

A key is to select a bag appropriate for the temperature range. Someone mentioned a -40 bag. That is appropriate for winter camping, not boating. Mine is 0 /-10 C bag. being too warm and sweaty is worse than being slightly cool IMHO.

I also sleep in a few clothes as possible - usually just a t-shirt and undies. ( I usually sleep in the saloon - not privacy.
