Sometimes when you’re camping, you just need a little bit more warmth. Whether your cold weather mummy bag needs a little more heat or you like to sleep with a light covering at night, the best sleeping bag liner is just what you need. We researched the best brands and top-rated products and put together this buying guide to help. Before we get started, let’s take a look at some of the key things you need to know.
Material: Some of these liners are made of warm fleece and plush microfiber while others are either satiny polyester or cotton. They’re all durable and machine washable but remember that different fabrics are better for different seasons.
Season: Warmer materials are great for winter. Using them inside a cold weather sleeping bag can add up to 15 extra degrees of warmth. Thinner liners that are silky or made of thin cotton are perfect for warmer nights.
Zippered: Zippered bags easy to get in and out of but there are some downsides. They can get stuck or snag the fabric and, if you unzip them to get out of your bag, you lose a lot of the heat.
Carrying Pouch: All but one of our picks comes with a convenient carrying pouch. This is really the easiest way to travel with these liners. They’re small and can easily be tucked into or attached to your pack.
Size: This is how big the liner is when it’s folded for use inside a sleeping bag. Some of these fold up impressively small to be tucked into the carrying bag so we included some of those measurements in the reviews, too.
Warranty: These warranties vary a lot from product to product. While there was no warranty information provided for a lot of these liners, others have warranties that last 90 days, 5 years, or even up to a lifetime.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s move into the next part of our guide, the product reviews. Here’s the deal, we put our top and budget picks right at the top of our list. That way, if you’re in a hurry, you’ll get a good idea about the range that’s available. Keep reading until the end if you can, all of these products are worth checking out. Ready to get started?
