Sleeping bag liner

A thin bag liner may feel softer against the sleeper's skin, add 5 F warmth to the bag (not pad), and be easily washed after use (unlike the thicker sleeping bag). A thick, fleece-like liner can increase warmth by 10-15 F. Liners also allow a sleeper to use the liner alone, without the bag in hot conditions. Optionally, bug-repellents, pockets, and a pillow holder can be added to liners.
Silk liners are light, soft and strong and retain much thermal insulation even when wet.
Cotton is heavier and bulkier than silk and absorbs water.
Synthetic [mix] liners are usually light, strong, and do not absorb water.
