The perfect liner to use to keep a sleeping bag clean or to use in a hostel or budget hotel

SeaToSummitSilkLinerTraveling recently to both Zimbabwe and India, I wasn’t sure what type sleeping arrangements I might encounter, so I was looking for something lightweight and compact to take along. After some research, I located a plethora of liners from a company called Sea to Summit  that had a wonderful variety of travel and sleeping bag liners in a multitude of materials.

Both my trips were to warmer climes, so I was looking for something that wouldn’t be too hot, that would pack compactly and would be easy to unpack, use and put back away.  The Sea to Summit 100% premium silk travel liner was just what I was looking for.

Made from AA grade, 10-Momme ripstop silk, this 82”x 36” liner was compact enough to roll up into a fist-sized roll that stored in a small zipper case that came with it. With double folded seams, after a couple of weeks of use, it still looks like it did the day I unpacked it the first time.

I had heard horror stories about how easily silk sacks can separate and be ruined after one or two uses. Not so with the Sea to Summit sack. Across the Atlantic and back twice now, it’s still in great shape.

When you’re sleeping on a strange bed, it’s very comforting to know that you are slipping into something that you washed yourself and you know is clean. And speaking of washing, this can go into your normal washing machine at home and be washed using normal detergent. Very handy.
