The other sacrifice is the size or bulkiness of the bag. A mummy sleeping bag for the most part will be much smaller for carrying around which is why it is a preference for many backpackers/hikers. The rectangular sleeping bag isn't as small but since it's not typical to be carrying it, other than somewhere in a vehicle while getting to your intended destination, the bulkiness of the bag is not as big an issue.
If you are going camping and need a sleeping bag, don't just pick the first one you see. Selecting the best one depends on the intended use and how often you plan to use it. Since sleeping bags come in a variety of shapes and sizes and some were made for lower temperatures and retain heat better than others it is important to know which one works best for you. Choosing the proper sleeping bag for your camping style will prevent a lot of aggravation.
Ever been on an overnight camping or backpacking trip but didn't have a sleeping bag so you borrowed one from a friend or someone you knew? Then, after a long day of playing and hiking it was time for bed and you looked forward to getting some sleep because you were so tired? So you crawled into that bag only to find through the course of the night that you either froze to death because you weren't warm enough or tossed and turned because of discomfort or maybe even both. Ultimately, what was supposed to be a great time left you cranky and exhausted because of a lack of sleep?
