How you care for your sleeping bag is very important and will make it last longer. Wash a synthetic bag in a front-loading washing machine with detergent. Dry it in a dryer on low heat, not to melt the fibers.
Although it would be nice if you could choose one backpacking sleeping bag for all climes, this is just not possible. Using a light shell in the mountains will make you freeze all night, and using a down-filled backpacking sleeping bag on a warm beach somewhere will lead to a night of sweltering in your bag. Even within groups of bags appropriate to a given climate, what works well for one person may not work for someone else. Metabolic and circulatory differences between people lead to differing needs in their sleeping bag. Look at the sleeping bag's temperature ratings, they will give you an idea of the temperatures that a bag will keep you comfortable in. Also consider whether to purchase accessories such as hoods for minimizing heat loss through your head, or draft tubes to get rid of excess heat in the backpacking sleeping bag.
Because of the cuts of the two bags and the room they offer you may find that you're on your back sleeping in the mummy bag while the rectangular bag will let you sleep on your side, stomach or back. And depending on how large the rectangular bag is you can shift your body into even the most unique but standard for you sleeping positions in order to get a comfortable night's rest.
