The ultimate gear challenge
Ok so it's not really within the usual OM sphere, but hear me out.
So I have left my beloved Yorkshire for London. A few friends too have moved out and there's a lot of people crashing at each others on lilos and sofas as we keep in touch.
What do you use if you plan to sleep indoors but still have to bring your bed with you? Now I can probably get comfy with my CCF mat on most floors but what would you use instead of a bag?
My first plan was maybe to get a fleece liner and use that, I sleep pretty hot anyway. Any comments or experience on this?
I'd find fleece alone too cold sometimes, and would prefer a zipped bag over a zipless liner for flexibility
personally I'd get a cheap thin 1-2 season sleeping bag- usually available for£10 -£15 from MountainWarehouse/argos/gooutdoors etc - often only weigh a kilo and pack small.
and a cheap compact camping airbed e.g. - we have these Multimats for that sort of thing - got for £8 each
I just got a £12 Bag for my teenage son from MW with a zip across the foot too- so could use as a sort of robe for modesty during loo trips etc...
If you are switching between households on a circuit(as sofa surfers commonly do IME), you may even be able to leave a separate bag and mat stored in various households. (and being cheap, no big loss if you disgrace yourself in some way and need to leave it behind!)
