Camping can be enjoyable for the most of the days. But camping in the cold weather or low temperatures can be so miserable that the most beautiful sights won't make up for it. Well-prepared equipment is essential for a camping trip, especially for those who want to stay overnight. Here are some tips about how to make your journey more comfortable and warmer.
Must-have Camping Gear Checklist
- Closed-cell foam sleeping pad
- Coupler strap (and a buddy)
- Extra warm sleeping bag
- Warm clothing

- Nutrient-dense snacks
Upgrade Your Camping
- Stay Dry
Yes, it seems like nonsense, but even the lightest rain and fog that can cause your body to wet can be a big problem in winter. The temperature of the water wet your body may be colder than the weather temperature. So putting apparel with a water-resistant shell into your package is necessary.
- Keep Your Core Body Warm
The most crucial way to stay warm is layering and warming the core area of your body. If your core is warm, then your body can provide heat to your extremities. If your core is cold, then your body will focus on warming your vital organs, and your extremities will become cold. Moreover, on cold days, we generally lose most of the body heat from our heads. In order to keep you as toasty as possible, a hoodie heated jacket with long-lasting working time is a perfect option for you.
- Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking water also can be helpful to keep warm. But you should avoid coffee and tea, which are diuretics and can drive you to the toilet more frequently. Just drink the water, even if it's no warm.
- Layers Matter
Layers are essential, and not just because they keep you warmer. Good layers make it possible to regulate your body temperature. If you're too warm, you'll sweat, which is quite dangerous because sweating can actually make you colder when the temperature goes down. Timely adding and removing layers are so important. You'll be more comfortable, and you'll be able to stay at the camp longer.
Wearing Venustas heated jacket for your camping trip is a smart choice because it provides exceptional warmth without extra layers and allows you to adjust the temperature (low, medium, high) according to the weather conditions without repeatedly putting it on or off.
- Sleep with a Hot Water Bottle
A hot water bottle in your sleeping bag can radiate heat for hours and help you sleep well when it's well below freezing in your tent. Fill up your hard plastic bottle with hot water and tuck it next to one of these critical areas: your core, your inner thigh (near to your artery), and your neck (near to your jugular). But you should always pay attention to the bottle's temperature. If it's too hot to get you scalded, wrap one of your layers around it and then place it in the suggested area.
In addition to a hot water bottle, another good helper to make you sleep well is Venustas heated clothing. It will prevent you from cold and keep you toasty for the whole night with its long-lasting (up to 9 hours at low level) battery and insulated lining.
