If you read my diary from my bicycle tour around the little belt you might remember I have been cold some nights. That’s why I sewed myself a neck-and-shoulder-warmer for next time. But I also had another idea: maybe I was being cold because my inflatable sleeping did not insulate enough for my warm-being. 😉
So I bought myself a big piece (2m to be exact) of Thermolam. That is an interlining by Vlieseline/Freudenberg used for potholders because it is a good insulator. Of course, it also works against cold. Insulation does not care which temperature it keeps away. It is also very light, I also used it for my pot-cover.
To keep the sleeping pad in place I will add and pinned some leftover fleece fabric to the ends. I thought it might be better to have it on one side so I might be able to use the rest of the Thermolam to store my clothes on, so they won’t be as cold in the morning…
So what do you think? Do you like my idea? Do you have a better one? How do you keep warm when sleeping in a tent?
keep exploring and smiling
