    I found my silk liner to be too slippery to use with my sleeping bag. I could never tell if I was all the way in it or not,where it was, what was top/bottom, where the side opening was... I got a synthetic one and it works fine for me. I forget which one I got but I got both at REI. I keep the silk one for traveling and sleeping in hotel beds.

    I have a silk liner (haven't used it since I started sleeping above ground)
    but I wouldn't count on it adding 10 degrees of warmth.
    For me it didn't add more than 5. YMMV

    I too have a Coccon brand silk liner. I have used it like a top quilt in warm/hot weather with low temps like 70-80 degrees F. It works good for that and I'm just one who likes to have something on top of me when I sleep. Have never tried using it in the winter months to increase warmth though.

    I made one from dress liner material. Two ounces more, but much cheaper and I made it myself! :-)

    A little different take on the liner thing from Marmot. Kind of pricey, but I think this would make a great summer bag at least where I live. It's on sale at Rock Creek: http://www.rockcreek.com/marmot/tres...g-bag-regular/

    My Mom made me what basically was a sleeping bag liner years ago out of suit lining material (shiny stuff), and it worked great as a light weight sleeping bag when I slept on floors at friends houses and such inside. Then I took it on a 2 week trip to St. John Island (USVI) camping, and in the humidity it didn't breathe at all and I was miserable. I went to one of the tourist shops and got a very lightweight cotton gauze sarong and used it, and it was great. I got a second one, and when I got home she sewed them together as a liner, and that's what I used for years when I went back there in the humidity. I tried to use that as an actual sleeping bag liner in my hammock, and had the same problem as with the silk one, not enough body to the material that I could keep it from turning into just a lump of twisted fabric and impossible for me to figure out how to get into it.

    I own a sea to summit reactor bag. It really worked and saved a trip that went down 15 degrees lower than my sleeping bag rating. Yeah I was a little chilly, (did I say 15 degrees lower??) but not miserable.

    Silk Sleeping Bag Liners

    I too have a Cocoon silk mummy liner. In my humble opinion, you would be in a real world of hurt if you had to get out of it in a hurry.

    Doesn't seem to add any noticeable improvement other than keeping the draft off when you have your sleeping bag partially open.

    ====> +1 I also have a Sea-To-Summit Thermalite Reactor sleeping bag liner, rated as adding +15 degrees warmth. I have not used it, but just fooling around with it it feels warmer indoors, anyway. Cost under $50, as I recall.
    Worth it to me, as I sleep cold.
