Sleep Clothes? on 10/21/2009 18:10:23 MDT Print View

I know that Phil. requires seperate sleep clothes, and without getting into the whys of that, what did you take, and how did it work out? Im looking for a lightweight option (should go without saying) that will also be comfy :)

My sleep cloths were a 3oz pair of Terramar boxers that I kept packed in my 30 degree sleeping bag until bedtime.

My tent mate (the scout master) slept in his light weight long handles - top and bottoms. About 12oz

Neither of us got cold at night on our July Trek.

Used patagonia capilene long bottoms and long sleeve patagonia capilene top with extra pair of hiking socks I rotated with my other pairs. Finally a lightweight beanie. Used this same combination in 2007 and this year in June/July.

This gives you the option to use these if the temps should require any additional layers. Just don't use them around food!

I took a crew to Philmont this summer. Sleeping clothes was not a requirement and in fact was never even discussed.

Thanks for backing up my decision. Expect to see a hypothetical gear list coming up shortly!

Really you just need a spare light shirt to substitute for your sweaty one from hiking. If don't sleep with a shirt on, then just a fresh pair of boxers or something along those lines.

Primary consideration--no food smells.

Secondary consideration--no attractant smells.

Third--whatever makes you comfortable.

Remember--other clothes will be in pack, near fire ring, part of the "Bear-muda triangle". (Don't look at me, I didn't come up with the name!)
