After my posts about our May long weekend annual camp out and Cat's Meow North Face sleeping bag review. Now I would like to talk about my Thermarest 40th Anniversary Edition. I just got it right before the camping in May.
I used my husband's old one last few years. It is big and bulky. Even when I rolled it up, still take a lot of space in my pack. It is not really light. When I used it, I did not feel like I am on the bed. Well, I think it is ok for camping, I guess. Until I decided to get a new one. The main purpose is, I just sick and tired of packing it with my pack. I can't put everything together since now we have to carry our daughter's stuffs too. When we went to the store, and tried on the Cat's Meow North Face sleeping bag. The store has a very think and comfortable Thermarest under the sleeping bag I tried on. It is so comfy. I feel like in my on a bed. Even better than that because my new sleeping bag is so comfy as well. I saw Thermarest 40th Anniversary Edition on sale and decided to get that one. It is not the most expensive one that I got to try on with my sleeping bag. But it did change my camping sleep since then.
