"As always - great product from Sea to Summit"
A great addition to your pack. Adds 10-15 degrees of warm to your bag, is a perfect summer options with no bag in warmer temps AND feels great. Allows you to roll around in your bag without the bag wrapping you up as if you were to be burned at the stake. If you are over 5'7" get the long. It gives you all kinds of options . . . cover face and use for bug protection, invite a good looking friend in, keep socks and clothes in the bottom for warmth or in case they get lonely. Get outside, no box needed . . .
"would find better use as a traveler liner, not a backpacking sleeping bag liner"
The silk texture is a little rough and the generous size of the mummy 'hood' makes it useless. I tried this out at home and got tangled up in it, can't imagine what it would be like on the trail. Doesn't seem to add any additional warmth but for the added weight and hassle I decided against it.
I bought the mummy version for my down bag. The liner is pretty thin but was comfortable, breathable and added some warmth. To get in the liner you need to get in through the opening at the top since it is sealed on both sides. It's a nice way to extend the life of your sleeping bag by keeping it cleaner and is easy to wash. Also, it's light and packs down small.
"Not as warm as promised, seams came apart"
It does help to keep warm for normal air conditioning hotel with long pants and t shirt. But when air con gets too cold, I start to feel the chill. Fairly amazing for something so thin and compact I must say nonetheless. It packs amazingly small! But crumples terribly whenever taking out. A small part of the seam came apart. I have not washed it yet. Don't think I am a rough sleeper too. It came apart on my 5th use I think. But still usable and the tear have not expanded yet.
"Works Well In the Beginning, But Doesn't Hold Up Well in the Wash"
I have the silk liner in the traveler size, and it does its job of keeping my sleeping bag clean and me warm, but it lost its luster after I put it in the wash. The liners are supposed to be machine washable, but I followed the directions and my liner came out a little worse for wear. It's still functional, but it definitely looks worn and threads have gone a little haywire.
I really like the bag liners. I used them when I visited a friend for a night. It was nice to not impact my friend since I had my sheets with me. They are comfortable, they wash easily and they dry very quickly. I am planning on using them on my trip to China next fall when we will be traveling by sleeper trains.
when i saw this at REI i was like, WOAH, this is a great idea. and stupidly without research i expected it, like other liners, to keep me a bit warmer. after camping in the back yard i learned that it is only for comfort, which is does well. if only they had some sort of super awesome hybrid between the sea-to-summit liners and this. then, i'd litterally throw money at them. but this does a good job of keeping my bag clean though too. i guess its around for little 2 day hikes and stuff.
Yeah, so I bought this basically to protect my new bag from getting too manky. I have used it a couple of times in the bag and it is very comfortable, breathes well, and is not very staticy (definitely spelled that wrong), which was something I was worried about. I have also used the liner on it's own a couple of times for just crashing on friends' floors in warmer weather - basically so no one has to walk in and see me naked in their living room. . All in all, I am a big fan. Oh yeah, also packs down to pretty much the size of a deck or two of cards which is a big plus when trying to save space/weight. Enjoy!
I used this liner while backpacking/hosteling around Europe over the summer months. It is perfect for such use! Compacts and stows nicely during the day, adds a bit of warmth during the nights and easily washable. Silk is very durable. During a road trip to Norway's Nordkapp, which was freezing even in July, I even used it as a scarf. Unwilling to spend the money to do a load of laundry before flying back to The States, this liner also doubled as a handy laundry sack... Great product!
Another great product from Sea to Summit. Rip-stop silk makes this better than other similar sheets I've owned. Going to use this in India where I need a lightweight sheet that can still provide a bit of warmth. Very comfy to sleep in this and don't have to worry abouttearing it. Love it !
"I find it very thin and you can easly see through it. I don't think it's going to hold the heat."
I like the feel of the silk and the lenght of the bag is great. And even if the opening isn't in a "V" shape I think I like this set up better then a "V" opening now that I seen it. However, I am having my doubts about the bag due to the fact that It's so thin and is easly see-through. I am woundering how any body heat will be traped inside by this silk bag. I can see that only a test run in the cold will tell all about this bag. I've had slik linners before and I LOVED THEM. I believed I was dealing with the same company I got my linners from brfore. I just hope this cold test works out.
