    Silk liner and a Thermarest

    What do you think of this setup. Put a thermarest pad inside a silk liner and then use my 40* bag as a quilt. Using the liner will keep the pad under me and prevent it from sliding. Would this work and what temps might this setup be good for?

    depends on the pad. but id say that a pad in a liner would be too tight of a fit. for you body. id say just use your pad and liner and then use the sleepingbag as a topquilt. its getting to be summer anyway

    Scrunched!

    I tried the pad in the liner route. no room to move around at all. Pad under liner worked fine, except for the slip 'n slide feeling...

    Actually used a silk liner with just my space blanket (heavy tarp type, not the mylar tissue), down to ~68F the other night in 25+mph winds with no tarp. Just shorts and a tank for base layer. I was very comfortable, and I tend to be a cold sleeper.

    That is the route I went the first summer of hammocking. I used a simple fleece liner around the pad, and this did help hold everything where I wanted it and kept me from sleeping (and sticking) directly on the pad.

    If the silk isn't too slippery, then it should work well.
