    I do but only in the winter when there is ice on the guy ropes.

    I use one of those silk ones to keep the bag clean and it makes it easier to turn in the bag during the night.

    And it doubles for my silk nighty that I don't like to wear in front of my mates.

    I find they are quite handy to keep the inside of the bag a bit cleaner. It's easier to wash the liner than the whole bag.

    It's a brave man that admits to wearing a silk nightie on a forum frequented by red necks and hunters! Good on ya mate!

    Do the silk ones show up the 'snail trails' and do they rustle when warming the hands on the 'one bar heater'

    I've used a silk liner for about 30 years now. Compact and easy to slide out in the mornings, as long as it doesn't look too cold out.

    Silk in summer, microfleece in winter. Keeps bag clean.
