The Rab Hooded Mummy Silk Liner is a great way to extend the lifespan and the versatility of your sleeping bag. Silk liners are far smaller and lighter than cheaper alternatives such as cotton and so are ideal for backpackers, trekkers and mountaineers who'll appreciate the difference in their pack during the day as well as when night falls.
A liner will help to keep your expensive sleeping bag free from dirt and grime, reducing the frequency of cleaning. Adding a hood further protects your sleeping bag from oils and moisture from your hair and face keeping your cowl in tip-top condition. It also has the benefit of adding up to a further 2Â°C to the warmth of your sleeping bag - plus in the case of silk a luxurious touch of comfort from the soft fabric.
A sleeping bag liner is also a must have for the ski tourer or alpinist. It takes away the itch factor when using WWII blankets in French huts and to have one is compulsory in Swiss Alpine Club Huts.

I bought this silk liner as I recently got a Rab down sleeping bag (to replace a synthetic that I have used for years) and did not want to turn the inside into an un-washable swamp after days in the hills. I am also intending to push my wild camping season this year and hope that the liner will give a bit of extra warmth.
I have only used the liner once on a wild camp in N Wales so far and found that it fitted the sleeping bag well. I think that it did also make the bag a tad warmer but as the temp over night was only hovering above zero, I will reserve judgement on this until later in the year.
There were only a couple of gripes. One was that the silk seemed a little "stiff" but I expect that a good wash will soften it up. The other was that. as I often roll about in my sleep, the liner got "out of phase" with the sleeping bag meaning that I woke a couple of times and had to rearrange things. There may be a way of securing the bag and liner together but I could not find it. Apart from this, it feels good value and came with a nice but somewhat tiny bag to store it in (not used as I leave the liner in place now).
Excellent protection for an expensive down bag.
Looks lovely and provides a little extra warmth to the bag. Not as durable as heavy cotton liners but very lightweight...the usual trade-off.
This is a great product, it's the second Rab liner I have purchased but my other doesn't have the hood.
It also packs really small so you can either store it in the sleeping bag or the separate bag for it. I find this useful as I'm heading to Kilimanjaro and will only need this on the coldest of days.
Perfect for protection of down bags. My bag is longer than normal because of my height, so I wanted the hooded liner to protect the vulnerable hood from sweat and grime accumulation.
I've been impressed so far with the comfort of the liner, both inside the bag and by itself on a surprisingly warm night.
This liner is indispensable now for me and is always in my backpack. I have used it already in numerous huts around the mountains in my country in every possible way: as a liner for my sleeping bag, as a sheet so I dont have to sleep with the blankets from the huts touching me, as a sheet covering me with my sleeping bah quilt style you name it. This is very versatile and I would say buy one before buying a sleeping bag if you are not sleeping outside but only in huts.
