DH bought a v cheap kids sleeping bag for DS1 from tesco on a whim. Looks very flimsy and a bit threadbare...Would a liner make it any better or should we just cut our losses and invest in a proper branded one. Will be our 1st campng trip so oviously don't want to spend a fortune ! Thanks, Louise

I use a cotton liner in my sleeping bag and it does make it much more cosy - I wouldn't be without it, but DH hates them as he gets all twisted in it. It really depends on how much the liners are - mine is a cheap Aldi one that cost £2.99 but it does the job. They don't seem to have them with their camping stuff this time. I think if you are looking at over a tenner for one you might be as well to get a new sleeping bag. Can you return yours to Tesco?
I really think in this country you do need a good sleeping bag as it can get cold at night and there is nothing worse than being too cold to sleep sad

I had a cotton liner and it does make a big difference. On long trips you can wash and dry it too, much easier than trying to wash a sleeping bag. Silk liners, I have been told, add a 'season' to your bag, and are sooo cosy. (Pricey though!)
