If you are going to bring a light bag in the winter, you can spend your night shivering if it’s cold outside. You might even experience hypothermia.
It is important to keep in mind the fact that getting dirty is inevitable. Enjoy hanging out in the woods and get down and dirty. You can clean up when you get back to normal after returning home.
