There are many situations where, for all kinds of reasons, got stuck before or during it with miles too easy and we want (or are forced) to travel at a temperature that is beyond its limits, or us.

Here are a few patents for heating.  I didn't invent anything, all known for years. This focused and review methods. Each reference is mostly bare space, but it catches. Overnight snow is another story and treat her. Would love to see comments, insights, comments and improvements. Start by reviewing related equipment, finally suggestions for improvisation in the platform event.

The attributes required to select high-quality sleeping bag looking separately when I have time.

To everyone, ntmatt:

Leiner, outdoor mattress and they recognized solutions in terms of equipment, has their review.

In terms of using skills and knowledge – find a local shelter! Selecting a location for good old blanket is a blanket, hat, tie, jacket, clothing, hot drinks, bonfire, hot water bottle, hot stones and fire, are the immediate solutions, which provide some protection.

1. liner.

"Liner", Standard Hebrew or "abdomen", is the inner body and heater, and camping — usually detachable or separate from the body. There is a liner, liner bag for your sock, and sometimes.

The lining adds 4 to 10 degrees of isolation of our sleeping bag, depending on the material from which it is made. Basically, look for material with high insulation gym and nice body. Another advantage is the lining protects the sleeping bag free of body fluids and dirt.

Lining structure principles: spacious enough for movement inside and limits but close and tight to the body, made of a material pleasant to the touch on the skin and carefully sewn at the bottom (standing under the pressure foot and body down and all unravel). "Half-half" stitching lining one side sewn-through proved best. Also create a "hood", round or square stitch at the top is very effective.

A. Basic: Instant Leiner-sheet/pillowcase. Very common in the military. Old sheet or pillowcase will form liner effective entry-level and add a few degrees. Advantages: no sewing and no nothing, available in every home. An emergency solution. Cons: heavy, not very warm.

B. Leiner. You can purchase (up to $ 120 in camping shops), or maybe better to buy a fleece throw blanket-in 15-30 NIS at, transform it into her belly: as is, or tailor the measures and our personal design. Thin fleece blanket is more convenient than a liner sheet in terms of fitness, like weight (about 400 g) and short insulated and efficient solution, but takes up a little more volume and less pleasant reasons on exposed skin.

C. Leiner. You can order from abroad. $ 35-65 in my regular stores made only. Silk sheet was bought in the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall in Tel Aviv, there a number of shops that can supply fabrics silk sheets feet width and length to size. The overall price as $ 100 and sewing, seamstress, NIS 20 weight: 200 g. Insulation: fitness estimation, approximately 8 degrees (based on field experiments I did in winter in the Negev). I don't know if solar warming than polar fleece.

2. mattress.

A mattress is a form of insulation between the floor. When it's cold, as thick mattress or more efficient, so get better insulation. Insulation capacity of the mattress it is customary to be value plus 1-6 degrees.

A sponge mattress.

The most common are sponge mat open. Sold at an affordable price ($ 20-50) at camp. Sponge mattress, that fit the insulation (R VALUE) and higher mechanical resistance, harder to get and more expensive. Welcome to sew him a cloth pouch to protect the edge and mechanical hazards. If you are sensitive to cold, thick mattress as you can.

Advantages: cheap, lightweight, relatively common. Disadvantages: mechanically vulnerable to tears, cuts and scratches and bulky and bulky, not adding much to the bedroom itself.

Since it is customary to say that the bottom of the sleeping bag is actually isolated (ע"ע" kilt "-I think the absolute manner because we go over there too old value for that), and sometimes fall off the mat. Recently I did an experiment with inserting a narrow mat into the sleeping bag. Worked good, but need more testing. Not comfortable especially against exposed skin.

B. air mattress

Selling at least a Viet Nam war. Inflatable air mattress, which creates good insulation provides comfort sleeping much much more: the stones back hole disappear entirely're boring and sleep quality increases.

The company that I think is known worldwide is A THERM at REST, which manufactures professional models. In addition, few brands are expensive or cheap.

There are simple and air mattresses.

The simplest to most complex system pipes weight and just 150-350 NIS affordable land and $ 60-50, before shipping and customs. Advantage: price, comfort. Disadvantage: in my experience, ranging from 8° c and cold air comes in contact with the ground coming up during sleep, and cold area They also top parts easy to split them, uncomfortable to sleep in-ramp-and even Egypt, hard blowing valves and flushing. Of course, the weight-weight game from cheap air mattress, and expensive professional dropped to 450 grams.

In contrast to expected never seen flat, although sleep directly on cynodon dactylon (ח'ילפה) thick that has thorns and sharp. On the other hand I saw American traveler with THERM A REST NEO, one of the new mattress, receiving a flat with a new mattress, his first stroll.

Therefore, Tip: using a simple air mattress we recommend sleeping on a blanket-signs are for extra insulation and maintaining punctures equipment.

Some more expensive mattresses, they swell themselves, contain internal padding sponge, built in double Chamber method and more. The important thing to look for is a rough upper surface (avoid the Madeline bag Department during sleep), lightweight, and very high-quality brand that meets reliable. Check always sat, I stopped trusting the reviews of MAGAZIN BAGPACKERS because I think they are too superficial. Also within the comments and criticisms in some stores appear to "hang" is suspicious. Filter.

Some manufacturers tend to give their gym mats in high isolation in a groundless. At least one proven case, independent tests that made someone bought and tested, including using computerized sensors, proved one known manufacturer gas chambers at least 50%. So that here the "If the manufacturer claims that isolates suspect."

On the subject of important lifetime warranty punctures, and valve issue. Have recycled aluminum valve if you click them, could leak. Again, to have A REST the THERM set valve replacement costs $ 7, which is a particular advantage. Valve with air blowing, issuance is uncomfortable.

On the common, using two-thirds, or mattresses, body. They are also cheaper. There are also separate air mattresses for men and women.

Tip: in an emergency, if you're stuck without a mattress or mattress too easy-try to improvise a insulation dry vegetation (wet branches only will increase the cold) all the limitations in condition and environmental impact, Burnet land commonly or Rotem industries. Anyway, this solution harms the environment and is an emergency-only level.

C. the bag (BIVY).

External coverage helps stopping the wind, which is an important factor in the temperature, and dew absorption-the humidity factor contained in the spirit also lowers the temperature. You want a lot more hizzonit not touch directly in the master bedroom (wet or cold it) but would be dependent almost, if an orderly and improvisation with stone wall (see below), hiking poles, corners, building an emergency shelter or any other arrangements you can improvise.

The simplest is an old sheet. In particular, there is a significant drop in the spring, placed on top of the sleeping bag, preferably without direct contact. In this case, and where expected Tal (for instance, the coastal plain in the spring to mid summer), a substance absorbs easier atomic material.

You can also use a nylon construction materials store (cheap and widespread but clumsy and heavy), outdoor curtain of opaque nylon fabric canvas tent, light from another source, and the solution of Ma-sewing fresh sheets. {On the other hand, the collection of fresh sheets two winters have not yet reached the stage of sewing, and solve engineering of sewing sheets shoshot sizes 8 (and colors) to square canvas, more or less, ...}

From my experience, a large piece fresh one, and is also used as rain protection bag, poncho and cover a small shadow, if laid out when she wraps stapled at the bottom of the bag provides a certain heating and additional protection for the legs.

Other possible improvisations are poncho, rain protection adjustable backpack (if you took) or wrapping your feet in a large garbage bag, preferably with DrawString tie.

Another possible outdoor getaway-blanket weighs almost is at least an opaque curtain and breaks wind. If is large enough, the underlying escape sheet under the mattress and wraps also constitutes sleeping bag is good for impromptu, and certainly, conditions commonly classified as "three seasons overseas.

Finally, you can buy abroad solutions integrated sleeping bag air mattress at the bottom and top, outdoor air mattresses with bondage straps, sleeping bag etc. I think no point because certain limited conditions, the total weight and the price of these systems.

4 tent

The tent itself is not a virtue but an isolated temperature wind, creating an air pocket about it heats our body heat, and the heat from cooking and lighting, if you were inside. The tent adds several degrees very much in isolation, but is heavier and I think rest carry in case other people. Easy solutions for GO LITE or MSR not enough light in to my taste. The solution I think is the Shire's TARPNET, ONE of gosmeyer and the like--brilliant, easy solution and I think land conditions. With that, I think the severe winter is also going to take a sleeping bag.

E. a

Madaf me the solution against mosquitoes, and also against flies and shadows in the desert. The accommodation provides good protection and internal heat metal. The heat don't get interest, but certainly better than nothing.

Using the skills, knowledge, and improvised solutions:

Choosing the right accommodation.

The wind dropped temperatures significantly. First of all, seek protection from wind. In any form.

A plateau is exposed to the wind, especially along heavy Tal fell directly onto the sleeping bag, freeze you: If this is the place, inside a protected outlet.

Always aspire to protect wind and dew too.

Therefore, when old buildings or ruins. In a desolate area – caves, grottoes and rock ledges block, even partially vaulted, the spirit, if in the area over the short term, if they madaf solution. If not, of rock or rock in the stream {if chance flood} and perpendicular to the wind, etc.

A look at the record height of Proton. It doesn't prevent the spirit slips from above, but will reduce it some.

In an emergency shelter set up by the curtain wall, stones, or maybe even a lettuce field (see below).

Secondly, to turn during the day the Sun (winter and spring most slightly South-facing slope, North-summer depending on the angle of the Sun during the day that season), more heat registers places are more onions look for a flat surface that will actually register liido or heat reflector, preferably a large Boulder, which produces heat which was exposed during the day Leila

Close to McCready, and wearing headgear.

Most temperature-up to 30% is lost from your head.

DrawString closure head hoodies, sleeping bag-block shoulders, are very important. You may want to leave a small hole in front of the nose or mouth, easy breathing.

Wearing a hat-fleece or wool, if desired, also a baseball cap or t-shirt or scarf improvising, etc.-will raise the sleeping comfort and sense of warmth.

With clothing

With less socks help save-more heat the region loses a lot of heat. With warm clothing much more. bedroom You want clean clothes, but most don't even bother to carry excess weight in sweat in Lila.

From personal experience, that is in soft thermals and long-tights-closest to the net, and sweat pretty lightweight. Anyway every garment, especially a long one, adds a lot.

Tying a jacket around your feet.

Each separate area and fastened in the bedroom creates air pocket on a local and stay in place. It is therefore important to close the zipper all the way (make), tightening the laces collapse, whether head. In addition, tying in the area defending another sensitive area in terms of source and creates another air pocket and bag separately. The body of the jacket sleeves to get involved, from below the knee area or market. Very helpful.

Fire + heat reflector.

"Pig" is a nickname for a horizontal surface located near a bonfire and perpendicular to it while blocking wind and reflects the heat for us. Big stone, manifold in a heat resistant bshaiph, plywood or cardboard even further: grow is located so that it is turned on.

If you do not return the heat settled for fire only. When wind protected place as possible but be careful not to turn on your equipment. If there are almost no trees, don't light a big fire to finish the trees quickly. Light a fire in idouit "minuscule" and enter it carefully and slowly in Rotem, dry twigs etc.

Beyond the value of Morley, bonfire body heating ability-even if limited and heating water. Hot tea, chicken soup (always pays to take a few tablespoons of chicken broth in a food bag), or even water with or without sugar, would help to prevent hypothermia, you can open and will improve the problem greatly.

Hot water bottle

The hot water can also alter a bottle warmer: full kancl water on fire will distort but won't explode.  You don't have to finish your drinking water can take water from the back. If you couldn't bring them to boil over two minutes at the end of the process will also be purified water.

Sleeping on hot stones from the fire.

Haven't tried this method yet this winter I slept well without hot-but it is used in Bedouin.

You can turn the fire on some rocks, preferably round and fist-sized plots or two, and after hatlato, cache, below 15 cm deep layer of dirt. Conduct experiments and update what happens. Caution – hot stones can cause severe burns treat them carefully.

Stone wall construction

The method taught in and survival modes. Vertical wall stones to break her spirit and provide shelter, especially in the field.

We would prefer a place close to a vertical rock wall, and prefer a right as described above.

Takes up to half an hour, effective, requires time and effort, and create a certain impact on the environment from poisonous animals while making the stones.

Building cover an area

First, remember that building good shelter takes at least an hour, if not more. Planned time accordingly and the garage soon enough.

Field shelters can be improvised from one to three stone wall, Emma, at least until the thatch (40-50 cm), preferably close to ordinary-cast, called etc.

After the construction of the walls, on the ground inside the shelter twigs to create isolation. No ground insulation of moist or green branches, it just drops the temperature.

Above the walls roof sticks women square-network "eye sticks across them assume a thick thatch as possible amount, twigs-branches can be used green or a curtain להיא improvisation we brought with us.

Make all close from 3 directions, and crawl in from the back, to be the opposite.

Shelter space could be an emergency solution on survival modes, or in transition season where we may be "borderline" then take even nylon curtain 2 * 2 m should be used.

Good luck.

Question about Leiner.
How is pretending I realized there are some kinds of silk, which is better?
How is it compared to Felice (it folded size) and comfort?

Resistant? You sleep in it, so you should only take the feet don't tear it nails. Heavy brass and takes up space. Instead take a brass k hotter.

Good article.
Some comments:
1. the fleece-liner thing indeed hotter than silk-liner thing. I have a omiithi, but mostly because of the weight (less than 150 g).
2. the problem with most free-sleeping bags (those built for integration with a mattress) is that they aren't really comfortable whether you're moving a lot, and all displacement can cause cold air entrance connection points. They also don't really save a lot of weight, for some reason, maybe because of the need to thicken up your sleeve who dresses for the sack.
3. lift: like all equipment, need to consider carefully the manufacturer's declarations, but not only, also on svars. Happens to me. I have a mattress Prolite 4 (Prolite Plus) of Thermarest, used me for six years, being very beautiful statements BV the manufacturer. But before he had a omiithi of Pacific Outdoor mattress, which was supposed to be something like actual weight 570 g and 710-retired nearly thirty percent!
4. the method of hot stones underground is excellent also in IDF's right down here, and people who have tried it report that it works great-just needs to be willing to add more dirt or dust if the initial amount is not enough, or vice versa.
5. who asked about durability: durable silk liner. No less than one of Kelly weight fiber used in a bag. Just like you said, also available.

I will explain the question of durability if I compresses the silk case is not destroyed? Need to fold it or you can fold.

Thank you for the comprehensive review, create the wisdom.

It is important to emphasize the importance of warm entry.
A few nights ago, I slept in the Jerusalem hills (pretty cold night) near the remains of a campfire. Heating your feet using hot stones before entering the sleeping bag allowed.
The dirt bury the stones didn't know the stones and slept next to their link after an hour or two.
The method too-warm bottle in resistant plastic bottles (e.g. of prigat) I think not itavato with water in them are inserted at a temperature of 70-80 degrees.

Aluminum bottles than plastic bottles iailm.

Aluminum bottle with hot water, put in a sock (cotton) so don't get burned.

All the ideas raised here are good but I think the best idea is to obtain a suitable bag with Mommy and Daddy and thus save cost/weight/volume of any liner not riskadding another patient in the combustion or sack artvato with warm water.

I know not everyone has the money to try to conserve, but I think there are three things that save them.

Shoes, backpack, launched.

I agree, all this thread deals with improvisation, I got two, one 7 and one easier and more 2 liners: silk and cotton. It answers to all the possible temperatures. That was seven miles already 5,000 feet in the Himalayas with Eyal and was very successful. The other is 0 degrees and comfort with all the seasons, and lightweight added up all summer, warm enough sheet ....
