How to Choose Liners for Sleeping bags?
When you decide to choose a liner for a sleeping bag,
the material is the most important aspect that should be kept in mind. Pick the one that suits your needs.
Silk liners are compact and lightweight. They are ideal for winters but in warm weather, these liners are absorbent and breathable.
Cotton liners are durable, strong, and affordable. However, they are not compact and a bit heavy to carry. Salewa
, Sea to Summit
, and Ternua
offer the best collection of sleeping liners, blankets
for hikers, climbers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Liners made of fleece and microfleece materials are heavier yet soft. They are moisture wicking and quick drying.
Synthetic liners are ideal for humid conditions as they hold breathable and moisture wicking capabilities. For a restful sleep, these liners also offer some stretch which makes them ideal for outdoors.
Insulated or thermolite liners provide up to 25 degrees of warmth and ideal for winter outdoor activities. They also dry faster than silk and cotton liners.
