Silk or cotton?

I just got a silk one for my last trip and love it...cozy, so light, and dries in no time! I am glad I spent the extra money on it. I think i got mine on ebags

I heard that the little critters still manage to infest and breed in the cotton liners. Silk all the way I reckon.

I'd recommend silk, you get what you pay for, and it's worth the extra. Not sure where you would get them in England, but i'd try an outdoor shop.

Is a sleeping bag an essential?!

It really depends where you are going and which type of accomodation are you going for?

Silk definitely. I was really glad to have it in Peru and Bolivia. I didnt bring a sleeping bag and hired one for both the Inca Trail and the Salar de Uyuni tour. Having the liner meant I knew I was sleeping in something bug free!

Since then, though, I havent used it at all really. Most of the hostels down here in South America are quite clean, and some really dont want you using sleeping bags or liners on their beds as it just transfers bugs from place to place.

Got mine on ebay too. Very inexpensive!

dosent buying one off ebay defeat the purpose of having your own, clean thing?
