    No im not using it inside a sleeping bag, im doing a hotel tour…but i just thought it may come handy if we get to some dirty bed bug ridden hotel or hostel…and because it’ll be summer it’ll prob b warm enough to sleep in just that rather than hostel sheets..im travellin 2 weeks after tour as well.

    Bec,

    Have you considered making one? Or asking a friend/relative to make one for you?

    From what I’ve heard all you do is sew up two sides of a normal sheet and leave a bit of a flap at the top.

    I’m still debating whether to take one myself, I might end up with just a little cuddly blanket instead and a spare pillow case.

    You can get them at most camping/outdoor stores

    All the hotels contiki uses are required to supply fresh towels and sheets and stuff. The worst of the places i have stayed with contiki were clean but old. I can’t think of a time when i would have used a sleep sheet. I don’t think they would help with bed bugs either. They could just end up in the sheets and then you can carry them around you – that’s the reason most hostels supply sheets don’t let you bring in sleeping bags.

    I am sure they do international orders but I get a lot of gear from www.rei.com and www.basegear.com

    I got a silk one from ebay for $30 including postage. It’s really good and really cheap concidering all the silk ones I seen on camping websites or in stores were $60. You should definatly get onto EBAY and have a look. Oh and it was brand new and came with a cover.

    Sorry I forgot, you can also buy this Bed Bug stuff that you wash your stuff in and it kills the Bed Bugs on contact. Check out this website.

    It should also be avalible in camping shops.
