Just been looking around at some camping stores (I live in UK) , and have come across sleeping bag liners. Anyone know if these are the same thing as sleep sheets?

Cheers

Chris

Yea, they are the same thing...often the only difference is that a liner will be mummy stlye instead of rectangle.

If you want something really like a sheet, get a cotton or silk one. I use a silk one, because it keeps me feeling like I am overheated in my sleeping bag...

Check out JagBags - its a small gig in New Zealand - but a very good product. If you want fleece you can find them everywhere on the web, but make sure to get one that is wicking (for getting rid of sweat). Check out Kelty - they have good liners. Especially if you want a good all around one (warm/cool and wicking and soft) look at the Wicking S.B. Liner on the Kelty site.

A lot of people make them out of an old sheet - just sew the edges together. If you can do that....go for it. Should work fine. (just bring some extra thread in case you do not sew too well).

Making one would be fine - especially if you are going for cotton sheet types, though you can buy them cheap as well. The thing I like about Jagbags is they will make them how ever you like, and I like the endura silk. You couldn't make one that cheap out of silk without buying bulk, and silk would be a bitch to so me thinks.

I made mine out of an extra queen size sheet. I have slept in it a couple times and works fine!

I made mine also. I just went to the thrift store and got a queen size sheet. When i was not going to need it any more I just left it at my last hostel and didn't care b/c it was just a few $

We just bought another liner, this one for Beth. She get cold easily, but we don't want to have to carry around an extra big/heavy bag. We have good warm bags, but like I said, she get cold easy...

So we got this liner by Sea-to-Summit made of Thermolite (which is the same thin our ultralite/warm bags are made of) which is used by Nasa and such

I still love my silk one, but its purpuse is different.

I made mine out of a dbl flat sheet. I used it only once and couldn't bring myself to toss it when it became unnecessary b/c it came from my mom's "pretty sheets" collection. so tecia has the right idea.
