  1. For all on here who have done a herrick summer tour. Is a bouncing bomb needed at the beginning or would a jungle doss bag suffice from this time of year?

    It can still get fcuking cold at this time of year but if you've take the softee jkt & trs you'll be fine.
    That said I've never tended to need as warm a gonk bag as some of the lads, and can't get on with the Bouncing Bomb as it's far too hot for me.
     
  3. i'd just take it anyway, i seem to remember April being pretty cold and by the end of tour if it drops below 30 degrees you'll be freezing
     
  4. Just use your jungle bag and get a yank poncho liner, that's all I used and was toasters.
