Royal Wedding 2011 - Camping Out

Postby ma0mpt » 12 Apr 2011 19:55

I was wondering if your bags would be suitable for camping out overnight in London.

I'm thinking of camping out in the Mall (or near it) so that I can get a good spot for the Royal Wedding. The bags are waterproof and warm so they seem to be perfect for the job. What about being on grass in Green Park?

If it rains, any normal sleeping bag would be useless I think.

An Ocean Sleepwear sleeping bag would work, and even if the fibre-pile got wet it would stay warm, and the outer shell would wash clean if it got grubby. The one thing to bear in mind is that the top does not completely close up like a traditional bivi-bag although that might not be an issue for you.

If you did want to close the bag completely then a Volvo Ocean Race bag (with some of the insulating layers removed) might be an option. The VOR bag opens out flat to form a rug or cover.
