    sleeping bag liner in the South

    For those in the South who are using a sleeping bag liner with your top quilt (or by itself when it's warm enough to do so), what type of fabric is your sleeping bag liner made from? Is it worth adding the weight?

    There's been many lengthy threads on this already if you search for it.

    I use a silk liner by itself when it gets hot. I sewed a channel at the head end and tie it to a prusik on the ridgeline with some shock cord to make it easier to get into. It seems to work to cool me down some as it wicks sweat off my body and spreads it out over a larger area to evaporate.

    I use a Swiss Army surplus fleece bag liner in weather when the nights are cool. Head end tied to a prusik same as the silk bag.

    GT silk bag liner with seam opened up about 3/4 the length of the liner. I just pull it over as a TQ in hot weather, never needed it in cold weather so I stopped taking it. Works great for me in 75degF+ with a dri ducks ponch hanging below at full draft. Just enough warmth to keep any chill off but not enough to sweat.

    I'll have to try the silk liner as a TQ.

    I use a thin fleece liner. I made it from a "texsport" 55* "sleeping bag". Cut the zipper off, sew the bottom together, and hem the rest.
    I haven't really slept out in hot weather. I did a hike in august in Pisgah. It was 100 degrees in columbia, SC, and up where we were, the high was 60, and it got down to 40 that night.
