On some nights, all I had was the liner. And, on the colder nights, the
liner really added warmth - mine has a hood, and it is just the right
thickness to keep the cold night off my bald spot.
And, yes, easy to wash.

Is it common for folks to use a silk liner on thru hike to keep the bag
clean? I don't have any thru hiking experience (my backcountry trips have
never exceeded 7 days), but I imagine the bag will get pretty grimy after 5
months. A liner would be pretty easy to rinse out periodically, but would
add 4 or 5 oz.
