Flannel Sheets and Down Comforter

June 19, 20132

One of the first things we did to our popup is trade in sleeping bag camping for real sheets and pillows. The easiest way to stay warm is by using flannel sheets and a down comforter.

Flannel Sheets


I purchased the Pinzon Heavyweight Cotton Flannel sheet set, which has held up quite well.

Down Comforter


I purchased the Pinzon Pyrenees Medium Warmth Down Comforter. My wife and I like it so much, we bring it into the house during the winter for use on our bed. We tried the Extra Warmth model first, but found it too warm since the popup camper has a heater.

Kelty storage bag

I also recommend storing the comforter in a protective  sack to keep it clean. We use the Kelty shown above.

I've been camping regularly since I was a kid, from quick Cub/Boy Scout trips to week-long backpacking trips and everything else in-between. We got a popup camper when our kids were 1 and 3 years old to enjoy more time outdoors together alongside a few conveniences like heat and running water. Since then, we've spent over 75 nights together as a family in our popup camper. I've learned a lot about the intricacies of a popup tent camper during this time and love to share those lessons here for the benefit of others.
