Question on sleeping bag liners with zippers

Do any of the liners REI sells have full length zippers?

Thanks, MB

@cdrmb Thanks for reaching out!

To answer your question, no, none of the sleeping bag liners REI sells have full length zippers. The Cocoon Cotton Bag Liner/Travel Sheet has a 3/4 length opening with velcro closure, and the Sea to Summit Thermolite Reactor Fleece Liner has a quarter zipper.

The REI Co-op Helio Down 40 Sleeping Bag is a really lightweight sleeping bag/sleeping bag liner that has a full zipper and might be worth checking out, depending on what kind of conditions you are sleeping in. 

Hope this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Your question leaves me scratching my head wondering WHY you want a zipper?  I have a mummy-shaped silk liner made by Cocoon that is inside my REI Magma 10 sleeping bag that has no zipper.  To MEeee, any liner is merely something to separate MEeee from the interior of my bag.  This keeps the interior of my bag clean, the silk liner is easy peasy to pull out & wash if it gets dirty or smelly from body odor.

Some folks have to visit the toilet in the middle of the night and getting in and out of liner can be challenging if you aren’t sleeping alone and don’t want to disturb those around you.


Another "Why a Zipper?" question. I use a Sea to Summit liner in both my down bag and my synthetic bag, and sometimes, on warm nights, will start off sleeping in just the liner on top of my bag until the temp drops. I have never, ever, wanted a zipper. I use the liner to both keep my bags clean and also to add a few degrees of comfort.
