    Default Advice on the most comfortable set up for sleeping please!

    Please can I have some suggestions on what set up would make for the best nights sleep in a large tent. We are car camping.

    We have a 4m bell and use carp fishers bed chairs. Bearing in mind these carp fishermen can be sat in one for 48hrs or so, they're supremely comfortable for a nights sleep. This sort of thing:

    More legs the better, ours are 6 legs and I still make the mistake of sitting on the end and tipping it up.

    Last two trips out I've used an Exped Synmat 9 long/wide, while Madam has one of the bedchairs, but this is only for convenience and less room taken up in the back of a 3dr Toyota. If your tent has room, I'd look at the bedchairs.

    I use an Exped Down mat 9lw, if pack space isn't a issue. It takes up quite a bit of the space, in a 2 man tent too.
    I use the Down Mat 5m most of the time. I find it perfect.
    He who says, "he can" and he who says "he can't" are both usually right.

    I use an exped downmat 7 all year round. Very comfy. I have 3 sleeping bags I use at varying times of year. Just now I'm using a snugpack jungle bag and cotton liner. In late autumn and early spring I use a vaude cheyan 500 which is a great down sleeping bag especially given it's very nice price on Amazon. For deep winter I have a Rab ascent 700 sleeping bag. I also use a fleece sleeping bag liner. I've gone through numerous pillows and have settled on a Nemo Fillo extra wide.
