True enough, although I use the dame philosophy when ground camping.
If you put a sleeping bag within a sleeping bag does it negate the first one? Why should clothes be any different?
right then...........here we go ( this is tent dwelling, not fruit bat impersonations hanging from the trees )
what i understand of a sleeping bag is that it keeps heat in........but first you have to get heat in there.....by sleeping with multiple layers / clothes on, you keep the heat close to your body and nothing in the sleeping bag air space, you will slowly leach your heat away.......if you sleep in boxers and socks, your body heat heats up the air space in the sleeping bag that is then kept warm by the insulating properties of the bag........simples A good sleeping mat really helps as well.
i find it warmer and more comfortable to sleep in only boxers.
See, different people, different preferences, different plausible-sounding justifications.
Who's right? I dunno.
Me...........of course !! Hahahaha
I have a feeling robbi is right, it makes sence!
thanks for clearing that up dude!
now the real question is, are jeans good for wet weather?.. (hehe!)
Is it me or is there a slight homoerotic undercurrent going on here ...

Did anyone see the football last night?
How dare you suggest that I could possibly be wrong! (and why does taking clothes off only make you warmer if you are in a sleeping bag, but not under any other set of circumstances in the known universe?)
Worse, how dare you suggest that Robbi makes sense? I think that violates even more physical laws.
Jeans? Meh, who cares?
Nah, they're 'mercan
on the count of 3.........let the killer badgers loose on Samon..........1.....2......
Found out on a recent dog walk in the wet you can operate an iPhone touch screen through a plastic bag - fortunately it wasn't one of the plastic bags I normally carry for dog walking... :O
next time I sleep out, I'll make sure to strip off my excessive layers to my undies! and get and foam sleeping mat..
anyone want to add some 'safe tips' to using sharp tools in the wet?
Will that suffice 'guv?
My advice would be; never sleep in jeans. Badgers love the taste of denim.
Yes. Don't use them in the sleeping bag while nude.
Yes. Don't listen to my advice.
not really, I work all sorts of jobs in all sorts of crap conditions and even when it rains! oh the horror!
but compiling ideas on doing the safest way possible would be useful, not just for me but anyone wanting to get on with a fire or shelter building!
Fires!? See, now you're being unsafe again. Never play with fire while nude in a sleeping bag in the rain.
Two sensible ones from me, based on a wet weather trip into the black mountains last winter:
Don't let anything get your sleeping bag wet. You have to sleep in it.
Assuming you are carrying waterproofs, put them on early if you think it is about to rain. If you let your clothes get wet before you put the waterproofs on over them, it defeats their purpose.
Oh yes, and rain can be sudden. Always assume that it will rain at the most inconvenient moment, and plan accordingly.
