Three great reasons to get this ultralight sleeping bag liner: 1) to increase warmth for occasional trips in temps that dip 10 degrees or so below your bag's rating; 2) to keep your bag clean, which protects loft; and 3) to add a touch of silk-sheet luxury to your backcountry bed. $65; 4.7 oz.;

I wrote a review at which I share below.

I have used this silk sleeping bag liner since 2003. I originally purchased it for use winter camping but it is equally valuable for summer time camping. I have used this liner in a variety of weather conditions with temperatures ranging from -teens to mid-70s.

Benefits of the liner include:

* It gives a layer of protection between your body and any water bottles or clothes you include in your sleeping bag at night.
* Lightweight. Only 4.7 ounces
* Warm. The liner adds 9.5 degrees of warmth to your sleeping system and reduces the air space your body needs to heat up.
* Comfortable. It is breathable, wicks moisture away from skin and is soft and comfortable to the skin.
* Ideal size. I am 6′4″ and found the sizing of liner to be ideal. The 95″ long bag features a drawstring hood, a 35″ wide opening taping to a comfortable 22″ boxed foot end.
* Easy to clean. Machine washable.
* Protects your sleeping bag from body oils and dirt.

I use the liner during summer trips as well. If itís too hot to sleep with my sleeping bag zipped close I sleep on top of the bag with the liner over top.
