While your deciding
Posted by martentrapper on May 02 2006
I just want to reinforce how important it is to keep your bag dry when your NOT using it. I spent a night in a wet sleeping bag last fall, and I don't intend to let that happen again.
Get a dry bag, like the ones meant for stowing gear on boating trips. You mentioned a possible float trip anyway. Even if you do a drop hunt, having a good dry bag to keep the sleeping bag in will be extra insurance.
Last fall in unit 23 was almost constant rain fall. Even tents can leak. Don't end up wishing you had brought something AFTER your sleeping bag gets wet. Plastic bags are OK, but they just aren't tough enough to last long. Dry bags are the way to go.
