    How low can you go..

    with just a sleeping bag liner at around 55 or above ( mostly 60 plus degrees ) Im wondering about just getting one for the summer to sleep in on its own. I was considering:

    Cocoon 100 percent coolmax mummyliner
    http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___45918

    Sea to summit adaptor coolmax travel liner
    http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___83046

    open to others. just looking for an answer to the above questions and the people of this wonderful forum's replies thankyou in advance for any feedback

    I picked up a very thin fleece sleeping bag liner from dicks sporting goods for $10. Its pretty much the same thing jrb sells but obvious cheaper made. I cut it up and made it into a TQ and at 11oz love it. I've slept in it comfortably in 47 degrees twice and 45 once. I thought I would only get 60 out of it. I also wear my clothes when I sleep, tights and t-shirt and long sleeve thin fleece. In 45 degrees I also wore a synthetic vest. I was using a 3 season phoenix UQ which I'm sure has a lot to do with it.

    I have slept mostly warm into the mid-40s with a fleece sleeping bag from Walmart that I cut open to make a quilt. Was far from ideal, but it got me through the night. I'd say 50 is about as low as I'd take it comfortably.

    Never tried it. In fact, until I read your post, I didn't even know it existed.
    I imagine it's the same thing, or better, than the fleece bags at the box stores. Except of course, it's already cut into a quilt shape; footbox and all. Not sure what weight fleece the box stores use, but the Jacks say "100 weight". I'll have to remember to look next time I'm at Wallyworld and see what weight their fleeces claim.

    One thing, fleece doesn't compress...AT ALL! Amazing how much space one of those things can take in a pack.
