A good day of paddling depends upon a good night’s rest. A canoeist’s sleeping bag needs to be lightweight, compressible, and able to withstand a little water. Whether you choose a bag filled with natural down or synthetic materials, look for a bag that will be warm enough for the coldest expected temperatures. Sleeping pads also help keep you warm by insulating you from the ground. Liners can stand alone in warm weather or extend the comfort rating of your bag when it’s cold, while camping pillows provide added comfort year-round.
