A Surprising Use For Your Waterproof Jacket
You always carry a waterproof jacket just in case of a downpour but this useful piece of gear may also protect the foot of your sleeping bag from condensation. It's a really easy and simple solution.
Step1: Zip the waterproof rain jacket closed.
Step 2: Get into your sleeping bag.
Step 3: Slide the jacket over the foot of your bag.
It's that easy. The jacket will keep your sleeping bag warm and dry plus the rain jacket is likely to be worn on your morning hike or can be hung up to dry instead of being crammed into a stuff sack. This will protect your sleeping bag on multiple day backpacking trips or an overnight camping trip. Give it a try.
