8 Tips To Stay Warm While Camping
Here I’m gonna share my 8 tips for staying warm while camping (besides using the heated outdoor folding chair).
Layers aren’t just for staying warm while you’re outside. They also work for staying warm while inside in your tent.
Generally in the outdoors you want to avoid cotton because cotton loses all its heat retention properties when it’s wet.
Wool however is the opposite, it doesn’t lose its heat retention properties, so I would say get some wool base layers. Put a fleece on over the top if you have a puffy jacket or if you have a down jacket you can put that on over the top.
Just layer up to stay warm. You can avoid too much layers with battery heated clothing.
Wear a hat to keep your head warm and to stop your heat loss through your head. If your fingers get cold, wear gloves, if your feet get cold, put some nice thick wool socks on.
If you find that your face gets cold, get a buff or a scarf or something like that. Put that on to keep as much of your skin covered as possible.
3. Hot Drink
Tips number three and four may seem a little counter-intuitive, but tip number three is have a hot drink before you go to bed. Hot chocolate is my choice.
It’ll give you some energy, so your body can keep you warm, but it’s also going to warm you up from the inside.
Pee before you go to bed so you don’t have to get out of bed and lose that warmth that you have. But if you are in bed and you wake up in the middle of the night and you need to pee, then pee because your body will be keeping that pee that’s inside you at your body temperature.
Once that pee gets out, the energy that’s being used to keep it at that temperature, will be used to keep the rest of your body warm.
5. Having the Right Gear
I often use a blanket which is rated to about five degrees Celsius. If the temperatures drop down to about 10 degrees C, I will be relatively warm in the blanket. But if I was at the top of a mountain, however, I probably would have been really cold.
So pick the right gear for where you’re going. See Best Electric Heated Sleeping Bag (Battery Powered)
Also make sure that your sleeping pad has a good temperature rating to keep you warm. And make sure your sleeping bag is at the right comfort level and has the right temperature rating as well to keep you warm.
6. Positioning of Your Tent
Camping on a beach next to a lake is not going to be the warmest place because you have a huge body of water right next to you.
At lest make sure that you are sheltered by the trees, so if there’s wind, it’s not going to affect you as much as people that are camping on the point where they’re going to get buffeted by that wind and it’s going to whip away all that warm air.
So think about where you are putting your tent.
Generally sheltered positions are better. You don’t want to be exposed. Next to bodies of water tend to be colder. You also have to deal with bugs.
You don’t want to camp at the bottom of a valley because the cold air will actually settle down there. That’s something to bear in mind.
Exercise before you get into your sleeping bag.
So you’ve had your hot drink, you’ve gone for a pee, now jog on the spot, do some squats, something like that just to get your blood flowing to get your muscles working a bit and you’ll start generating heat, so when you get into your sleeping bag, that heat is going to stay with you in your sleeping bag or your sleep system, whatever you’re sleeping in.
One caveat to this is you don’t want to do so much exercise you start sweating, because then you will cool down, the sweat will cool you down, you will be wet, it will not be fun.
So don’t do so much exercise that you sweat, but just do a little bit for 30 seconds to get the blood flowing and the muscles moving.
8. Hot Water Bottle
If you are really cold, boil some water, put it into your water bottle, bring it into your tent as a hot water bottle.
If you have a metal water bottle, you may run the risk of burning yourself, so put it into a sock or wrap it in your buff or something like that, but wrap it up so you don’t burn yourself.
Also if you have a plastic water bottle, be careful because you don’t want to melt it.
If you don’t have a water bottle that you can use, if you have had a fire, very carefully pick up one of the rocks that you’ve had around your fire. It will have absorbed a lot of heat from the fire.
Wrap it in a buff or something like that, wrap it in another piece of clothing and bring it in with you as a hot rock.
And of course, don’t forget heated camping outdoor chair that you can buy here.
