Sleeping Pads, Pillows, and Liners

To sleep well you need to be comforable. Sleeping pads provide extra cushioning, but also extra warmth by preventing you from losing body heat to the ground. Pads made of closed cell foam are inexpensive, warm, and durable, but can be bulky to pack and don't provide a lot of cushioning. Inflating pads combine comfort with insulation and compress easily for packing, though they are more expensive than foam and require proper care to avoid punctures and leaks. In addition to pads, some folks find compressible pillows essential, and liners can add extra insulation or stand on their own as a super-lightweight summer bag.

EXPLORE SLEEPING PADS, PILLOWS, AND LINERS:
Sleeping Pads:
Finding the right sleeping pad for your canoe trip will depend on whether weight or cushioning is more important, and how warm or compressible you need your pad to be.

Pillows:
There’s nothing wrong with a little extra comfort on a canoe trip. Trail pillows come in a variety of easy-to-pack down, inflatable, self-inflating, and synthetic styles.

Liners:
Liners are incredibly versatile. Sleep in one by itself in the heat of summer, add it to your bag in the late fall for a bit of extra warmth, or use it as an easy-to-clean layer between you and your sleeping bag.
