Question:

Cold weather sleeping--is it correct to don the clothes you intend to wear the next day, so you're not sleeping in sweat-dampened attire and then becoming chilled overnight?

Answer:

I feel safe saying you should never sleep in damp clothing. You risk not only a chill and poor sleep but also adding unnecessary moisture to the insulation of your bag.

Personally, I prefer to snooze in long underwear that I carry just for sleeping, saving my clothing for the trail. By the way, my sweaty stuff usually dries during the night if I hang it.
