    I use a nice, warm sleeping bag that I zip open and use as a comforter. But since all bags / blankets compress underneath the body, you lose the most heat there. So I have a Bedrug mat (closed cell foam), and put a Thermarest on top of that. That gives me almost 2 inches of cushion.

    Canvas bedroll, with 3 bags and a wool blanket in it. I've slept in a foot of snow with another 6" falling throughout the night and didnt get cold. In the bed of the tacoma it's like a sauna. Once I get my shell on ill be able to just take my backpacking bag and mat.

    I've got the bedrug. I see 12v electric blankets and the heated auto seat people make a 12v heated mat that looks neat or just mount an 11lb propane bottle under the truck. I just wonder what the best way to have heat and maybe a little cooking would be. I would like to be able to camp for say a week at a time.

    I know coleman makes all sorts of cool little heaters. Honestly if your truck has a topper and its carpeted... You shouldnt need much more then a couple heated sleeping bags. Unless your camping in the middle of winter in a cold climate... Which im not sure why you would want to that... But to each his own.
