  • Sleeping bag.
  • Foam or inflatable sleeping pad.

How do you sleep in a tent on a hot night?

  1. Set your tent up in the shade.
  2. Use a reflective sunshade over the tent.
  3. Use a portable air conditioner or cooler in your tent.
  4. Use a sheet instead of a sleeping bag.
  5. Check the weather and remove your tent’s rain fly.
  6. Open your tent’s door and vents if it has any.
