AM on Field Sleeping in the Winter

AM replies to Field Sleeping in the Winter.
You can buy the gortex bivy shell from surplus stores for around 40 bucks, and the green foam pad for less than 10.

That is the best lightweight option to survive a night. If you want to be comfortable get any sort of sleeping bag rated for what you intend to be surviving in.

Field tip, put the foam pad INSIDE the bivy cover and sleep on it. You won't slide off the pad in the night and lose your thermal insulation against the ground that way.
