    Wallmart used to have the fleece sleeping bags for 9.99, they no longer carry them.
    Perfect for 50-60deg nights

    I have a question for anyone: Besides weight/bulk, what's the difference between the fleece sleeping bags and the fleece sleeping bag liners? Are the ones sold as sleeping bags warmer than the ones sold as bag liners? I have a Cocoon microfleece sleeping bag liner that I'm considering on taking on an upcoming trip but I just can't decide because I don't want to make a mistake and end up cold while trying to sleep at 4000 ft. The nightime tempuratures are expected to be in the upper 60's to low 70's. There are no tempurature ratings posted for liners. They always simply say that it adds 11 or so degrees to any bag. I know I won't need to take both my bag and the liner for this trip but if I can get by with only the liner I would do that. Anyone know?
    Thanks. Kat

    Fleece bag liner

    Liv2Ride,

    My experience is that it is the weight and bulk that make the difference between the fleece liners and the fleece bags. More material thickness equals warmer.

    I have a mid-weight fleece bag liner from REI that I used to use with my 15deg F down bag in late fall / early spring and it added a significant amount of warmth.

    Now I bring light wool tops & bottoms that do double duty. 1) Potential additional clothing layers while hiking or setting up camp AND 2) as a "bag liner" to extend the range of my 15 deg F bag.

    Yea...that's what my thoughts have been. Hence the reason why I've never picked one up. They are so heavy compared to my ultralight Montbell sleeping bag. If I haul a wool weight top and bottom in addition to the fleece liner during the summer I might as well just bring my UL SS bag. It's just over 1.5lbs and very comfortable. Just thought that maybe I could get by with just the fleece liner for this trip. Since I haven't packed the pack yet it's still possible

    Thanks for the input
