    Unlike my old sleeping bag, the new one doesn't have any form of non-slip beads or pads to prevent slipping. Nylon sleeping bag on nylon tent floor is real fun if the ground is not 100% level.
    Any suggestions?

    G'day Jan, a piece of the non slip stuff for drawers (liner stuff-you put it under glasses etc) under your hips should do the trick. Weighs about 20-30 gms.
    Whoops, hang on, are you sleeping directly on the floor?
    Or do you mean mat when you say bag?
    If so the above should work.

    A thin bit of CCF or a sleeping pad with a few dots of silicone work.

    Dots or stripes of Seam Grip (from McNett) on both sides of your mat will help. It only helps so much though and the better fix for me was a different mat with a non-slip surface and also a less shiny/slippy sleeping bag.

    I'll walk an extra mile or two for a flat pitch.
