I want to talk to you today about a travel item that can keep you warm, cool, safe from who-knows-what creepy crawlies, and is silky smooth. It is THE SLEEPING BAG LINER. Oh yes, those of you who have one probably just went “Yup, yup, yup that sucker is magic.” I got mine when my mom took me to REI before I went to Africa. We did a major haul (just think what those dividends would have been if we had been members…) and the liner was something of an afterthought. Here Is the link to the kind that I have.
Claim 1: It keeps you warm. It does; if your sleeping bag or blankets just aren’t cutting it by themselves then this handy addition will help keep in the heat.
Claim 2: It keeps you cool. It does; if you are sleeping somewhere hot (like Africa) then you can sleep in just the liner, sans blankets and sans sleeping bag.
Claim 3: It will keep you safe from creepy crawlies. When I went with a group of friends on a trip to Mozambique we stayed in a hostel our first and seconds nights and everyone woke up with weird bug bites EXCEPT ME. I slept in just the liner and woke up with the same itch-free skin I went to bed with.
Claim 4: It is silky smooth. It is; mine is made of silk.
