... out of our first issue bpl mag ever ..
"And lastly. My mom’s old scarf... I carry her silk scarf and this silly thing is a godsend. It folds blindfold like and tucks in behind the bomber cap ear flaps at night covering my eyes and making sleep possible in the land of 24 hr light. On really cold nights I can wear it over my bomber cap and it will contain considerable heat near the face while still allowing normal breathing. I folded it in half and sewed up one short side and half the long side, this keeps it over my face all night, while it’s worn open in the back like those hideous hospital gowns."
you never know when you're going to need this kind of stuff:
the scarf is silk, or silk-like. it breaths to the point of allowing me to sleep with it fully covering my face, thusly it keeps a lot of the warmth and moisture (keeps tongue from splitting) near my face. and too boot, i can sort of see thru it too. and that's always a nice bene when alone in bear country.
the weight is negligible.
