Sleeping bag vs quilt: which is better for you? And we are not talking about the kind of quilt that is hanging up on your grandmother’s wall. Backpacking quilts present a lightweight, versatile replacement to the traditional mummy bag. But is it truly better than the old tried and true?
A natural instinct may be to place your inflatable pad inside your sleeping bag. While at first, this may sound like an incredible idea, there are actually a few good reasons why you should avoid doing this.
It is easy to fall into the thinking that all sleeping pads are basically the same, they make sleeping more comfortable, right?
Yes, they do indeed make sleeping more comfortable when you are camping. But having a poor sleep pad can have even the most eager backpacker looking for the quickest way off of the trail. (I can attest to that)
The Nemo Tensor gives you an ultralight sleeping pad that performs above its R-value rating, does not make a bunch of noise like other pads, and can inflate in a fraction of the time of similar pads.
