I can't imagine dealing with anything cotton in the backcountry. It soaks up so much weight in water and dries slowly. It would be fine in drier climates perhaps but I would think it as completely unsuitable for the coast. You might get away with it for 1 night, but by morning I'd expect it to be pretty damp in most situations, then good luck drying it out.
