I am thinking of finally buying a sleep sheet for traveling, I did a quick bit of research and it seems like everyone has Dreamsack. I'm wondering if other people have used other brands, also why Dreamsack is best and why it makes a difference to have a silk sleep sheet versus another? Especially since Dreamsack is so expensive to others, is it worth the investment?

Thank you!

I've never even heard of dreamsack, i must admit!

I have sheet sleep that i always take, and even if sheets are provided, if i'm staying in a hostel i always use my own as well (security as much as anything else)

I used to use a cotton one, but then paid the extra and got a silk one. Why? It's half the size and weight, and dries much quicker. The size and weight you might consider to be trivial, as they aren't exactly the heaviest things anyway, but it all adds up, and for someone like me who travels with only a small bag, anywhere I can save size and weight makes a big difference.

Have to agree, never heard of "dream sack".
I too have a silk one - they're eensy and light. cotton ones are a lot heavier.

Interesting that you guys haven't heard of them - they're the only one I came across online...

What brand are the silk sleep sheets you guys got?

I got mine in Perry Sport in Breda, Netherlands. Could be thier brand or unbranded for all I know. It's red if that helps. Sorry to be blunt, but I really don't give a flying feck about the brand of a sleep sheet - they're all the same, and have nothing that can go wrong/break/fall off.I'd spend time worrying about the brand name for a rucksack or a jacket or a pair of boots..

Great thanks -

Much easier to find sleep sheets on the internet when you have a brand name to start with though, rather than just looking around for "sleep sheet" which turns up lots of interesting stuff.

well if you find sleeping bags on an outdoor store, there'll almost certainly be sleepsheets beside them. Any outdoor store I saw online had a "sleeping" section and they were in there.

I have a cotton sleep sheet which I think is warmer... It really depends on where you are going, which one you want. I can't find it at the moment so I can't check the brand, but I googled travel sleep sheet, cotton sleep sheet and travel liner and got lots of hits for different kinds of sleep sheets.

P.s. You can also make your own. http://www.guideforeurope.com/sleepsheet.html

Like Kenmc says, just go into any outdoor shop. My silk one is a random generic Swedish brand.

If you go down the cotton route, it is also easy to make your own, although again they tend to be heavier and bulkier than ready made ones.
