    I've read a lot of people here talking about using wool blankets for a sleeping system instead of a sleeping bag, I'm just wondering what the reason for that could possibly be. I'd take an army four piece sleeping system over blanket any day. Blankets are less warm, heavier, bigger.

    I know you're not supposed to store sleeping bags rolled up tight in their stuff sacks. You're supposed to hang them or lay them out flat (under the bed or something). Is there a way to keep them safe from moths and dust mites if they're just out like that? Even a lawn & leaf trashbag...

    Has anybody tried using a sleepingbag liner? I have a good +20 degree mummy bag, but want it to be useful at lower temps. I dont plan on using it in sub-zero temps, but want a little more out of it without getting a new one. It said that they can add 10 degrees to your existing sleeping bag.

    I was hoping to get some thoughts on what you think about quality tents and sleeping bags. What do you look for when purchasing these items? Are there durable, all season types?
