Agree, I have used that combination and it works well. In hot weather I will use that in combination with a standard bed sheet, comfortable and cool.

A good liner can add about 10 deg. to the bag rating as can a cover or bivy sac on the outside. Depending on what you have to sleep on, many of the previous suggestions are great. An inflatable mattress, an inexpensive man made fiber bag good to maybe 32 deg with a couple of liners (one light, one heavy) with a breathable cover should cover most situations. You can use the covers alone for warmer and add components for cooler and colder temps. It also makes cleaning much easier! If you are on a boat an additional fleece blanket will give you even more range. Just stick with man made materials.

Re: Good sleeping bag for sailing

I recommend the Gauss Marine Sleeping Bag. It's layered with fleece inner and the synthetic fillings work if they get wet - unlike down-filled bags!

The Gauss bag is sold in the UK as Gauss is a British company, but they can be persuaded to ship the the US and Australia. Prices are about £189.95 ($320).

The bags are very warm when both layers are used and I know many that have never used the inner fleece layer. Personally, for sailing in cold climates, the Gauss is a very welcome, warm and comfortable treat!
