    Pretty much this means post a photo of your complete sleep system for whenever you go camping. This includes winter systems as well.

    So the big white thing I use to tie everything together in the sled in the background. Works well to keep everything in place. Once I am at camp and unpacked, I throw it below everything like it is in this photo. Above that you can kind of see on the top right the corner of my Big Agnes Q-Core Sleeping Pad. Above that I put my jacket I use at the top, I like it being dark when I wake up so I have that above my eyes with my nose and mouth exposed to the air. It works nicely. The pillow is normally smaller and fleece, but that's to show I have a home pillow with me. If I can't get the sleeping bag I want off ebay next month, I'll be using this bag, which is inside out. And normally I have a wool blanket which I need to find at a thrift store. Holds in the heat well I think. The very top right of the photo is a grey thing, that's my summer bag I use alone.

    OR bivy sack, standard thermarest, blue tarp ground cloth and a 20 or 0 degree down bag. The 0 bag is from MEC the 20 is a kelty. Been using the same stuff for 20 years.

    Military modular sleep system for me as it has the two liners and the gore-tex breathable bivy sack.It's a bit heavy but worth the comfort,and you can remove or replace the liner/bags as needed according to the season.I slept in it in mid November,and early April,and was comfortable in it.I have another mummy bag,but I doubt I'll use that unless maybe June through August.Once in the compression bag that usually comes with the systems.it fits on top of my Trapper Nelson canvas pack.

    Mine is the same as @Flint_2016 has, and I usually have a tarp or poncho over me as well. Other than that I just use nature for a sleeping mat.

    Solo is as follows:
    Winter I am in my MSS on a wally mart self inflating pad, in my hammock with a double woobie underquilt, will be adding the eno ember to the mix this year. And I am looking for a down comforter to make a better uq out of.
    Spring/fall is hammock, eno ember 2 uq, Wool blanket and a woobie.
    Summer is hammock, single woobie uq with a woobie or wool blanket.
    Depending on weather I have a few tarps to cycle through, from my eagles nest diamond fly, a kelty 12' to a junky hardware store 12x16 which makes a good winter tarp/hammock tent.

    If I am with the kids I have mss for everyone, set up to match the weather, and we sleep on cheapo air mattresses in a cheapo amazon 4 person 3 season tent.

    This list is constantly evolving, as it tends to...

    here's one I use for quick/light trips- Apex Climashield quilt (rated to ~ 40)- about 14 oz, 20x40" 3/8" ccf pad- scored so it folds up and doubles as structure for a light pack-about 5 oz, eVENT bivy- adds warmth and keeps the elements out-about 11 oz
