Pardon me for newbie question but why should we use liner when sleeping on our bag?

keeps sweat/oil/dirt out of your bag, not sure on this one, but some actually add a few degrees to the sleeping bag rating

Can be used instead of a sleeping bag or quilt in temps above about 64 degrees.

Ron, how'd you guys come about this number?

I've used bag liners on summer trips in the east many times in temps around 60 at night. Also think about temps in a home and what your comfortable with...

It can also boost a bag rating a little ymmv. Know many others who Carry only, or with a dwr bivy, this on the AT in July.

Ron,

Would you mod one to be a 'quilt' instead of a bag?

Just got 6 yards in the mail today. It is silky smooth. Better than M90 as it is soooo thin.

Quilt mod? on 01/05/2011 19:57:17 MST Print View

I am also wondering if you could modify one to be more of a quilt as I would want one for an overbag rather than a liner.

Yes, it would be interesting to size up the liner bag slightly so it can be used as a zipperless, hoodless bivy (don't change closure) with ground sheet under it. That way it would have dual use when in hostels.

+1 for dual use in hostels.

Re: Re: Re: Quilt mod? on 01/07/2011 17:43:12 MST Print View

The liner is limited by the width of the fabric.
Adding some extra would cause some more stitching but I agree, it needs to be an option.
I have 6 yards and I'm making a bag with 12 ounces of 900 fill and because the fabric is so light, I was actually thinking about adding another piece of fabric to the top of the bag as to separate the stitching from the elements as well as having that double the ability to block the wind.
This fabric is just so thin that I can only imagine the wind chill would have some what of an effect of how effective the bag would work in the wind?

I hear ya Aaron. Maybe it is too fragile and not windproof enough to be used as sleeping bag cover.
