love 'em use them whenever i sleep out, it also helps on the sleeping bag wear and cleaning
I have a jag bag that i purchased from ebay. I did my shopping for weeks and i think that these liners are the best bang for the buck. They have everything from rectangular 100% silk liners starting at 26 dollars to endura silk mummy bag liners for 48.
So far I am really pleased with the quality and comfort. They weigh nothing - you would probably be more confined by the space issue rather than the weight. When I was in Red River Gorge, KY this June is was too hot around bedtime to have anything over you so I used to go to sleep without a bag. I would wake up chilled in the middle of the night. Got in this liner solo and was fine all night. I kept me cooler when it was hot and warmer when it was cold. It seems very good at regulating temperature. It def. reduce the draft effects in my down bag in the winter and added some degrees of warmth..I dont know about 10 degrees but at least 7. Plus, it keeps your quilts / bags body oil free, which is the most important part.
No body oil = no washing bags = longer bag life.
Well worth it considering 1) it can be a solo summer bag which weighs nothing
2) for these low costs, why not?

Looks like a good deal for the price. Might as well try it out. Weighs about the same as silk but i dont think it will breathe as well as silk does. That said it should work as long as you're not using it during a muggy summer.
I have a silk liner and will be getting a fleece liner eventually. The silk liner worked great as a liner or as a light sleeping bag. It's pretty much a permanent part of my travel kit now for when I have to sleep in the airport. It also worked great as a swag bag, carrying wet laundry around and the like.
The same company makes a liner out of thermolite that's supposed to add 25 degrees to the rating, I think that'd be an excellent summer sleeping bag. It's a good bit bulkier though.
I'd suggest a rectangular liner, not a mummy shaped liner. I figure a rectangle shaped liner will work just as well in the mummy sleeping bag but will have a bit more leg room if used as a sleep sack.
