I use a Rab Quantum 400:

Not cheap but it meets your small and light criteria. As ever these
things are budget dependent but down tends to last longer than
synthetic and is much lighter for a given warmth.

Worth going to your nearest decent outdoor shop and having a look at a
bunch of different ones to get a feel for what's available. Don't pay
too much attention to temperature ratings. They tend to be consistent
only within a particular manufacturer. What keeps you warm is not the
filling but the loft it generates so a good first stab is just to
compare how thick the bags are - if they're similar thickness, they're
similar warmth. Packed size and weight is easier to compare.

For all-round use and pound for pound(on the basis that I spent more on a
number of unsatisfactory synthetic and fibre pile bags before settling on
down), down bags are hard to beat and I have never been cold in one.

I have a meraklon one Paul that someone bought for me from Blacks. On its
own it is fairly useless but inside a sleeping bag, I think it gives it at
least one more point rating in warmth. It isnt too bulky. I know you can
get very thick thermal liners which will significantly add warmth. In my
opinion, the silk liner which i use with my down bag doesnt add anything in
warmth but just allows the bag to stay clean(and therfore supposedly more

I'm thinking of buying a sleeping bag liner to improve the warmth of my
sleeping bag.
Does anyone know how much difference these make?
Will silk provide better insulation than Cotton?
How many more degrees of protection would I get with a liner?


Certainly if you are packing for any distance you want he lightest and
most effective you can get and silk liners fit that category. Like
any product there are always OTT claims, but the small size, etc is
what I'm after.

I'm thinking of buying a sleeping bag liner to improve the warmth of my
sleeping bag.
Does anyone know how much difference these make?

The liner prevents my skin from becoming chilled if I want to stick my legs
or torso out of the bag as the tent warms up in the morning. This makes a
big difference to my comfort.

Will silk provide better insulation than Cotton?

Yes and no. Silk will give better insulation for the same thickness, but
the silk ones are nomally a lot thinner.

How many more degrees of protection would I get with a liner?

My (thin) silk liner claims to give +5 degrees C additional warmth[1] but
that seems way off the mark.

Overall, I'm a fan of liners, but not for raising the season rating of the
bag. Fleece liners would be a very cheap way of doing that, and a good
sleeping mat also makes a heck of a difference.
