Next to consider is the quality or material of your sleeping bags. You must know that sleeping bags' temperatures depend on the type of insulating pads they are made with. A quality sleeping bag you are looking for may just depend on the padding. They work irrespective of the weather conditions outside. Foam core pads are warmer are thicker and warmer than air core pads. Closed cell foam pads add extra warmth - perfect for winter mountain campers. You can also choose from more insulated air mattress bags that are blown up, or those Thermarest style pads, also blown up but mouth-delivered only.
The shape of the actual sleeping bag is down to personal preference. The general choices are the usual rectangular shape, the tapered shape, or the mummy bag. Some people may not like the feel of sleeping in a normal rectangular shaped bag, preferring the closeness of a tapered one, whereas others may feel too claustrophobic.
When using any type of sleeping bag the bottom of it is usually the most important when keeping you warm on a cold night. When you lay down you tend to crush the insulating material between you and the surface below causing the insulation not to work very well. To help with this problem it is recommended that you place a pad or non crushable insulating material underneath your bag. The zipper of a rectangular sleeping bag is always the week point for losing heat however with today's technology the heat loss is usually minimal as compared with older models. When choosing a sleeping bag you'll want to ask yourself a few questions. First, ask yourself if you'll be camping in cold weather or if you're just a weekend warrior in the summer. Second, ask yourself if at any time you'll be going on extreme expeditions to very cold climates as this may cause the need for a mummy bag. Third, ask yourself how much you want to spend and this will help narrow down your choices. There are rectangular sleeping bags for men and ones especially made for the shape of a woman's body. Finding the one that fits you is not that hard and there are many choices out there. Typically mummy bags are more expensive than the traditional style and most of the time you'll be perfectly fine with traditional rectangular sleeping bags.
