The backpacking sleeping bag must be light. A typical backpacker will already be carrying food, extra clothing for rain or snow, fire-starting and cooking gear, flashlights, water bottles, first aid supplies and other survival gear, and any special equipment for traversing the terrain the backpacker will be in, such as ropes, pitons, etc. Adding a 25 pound sleeping bag to this load can make the weight unmanageable for someone not blessed with a Herculean physique.
For instance, just some of the things that you should be asking before buying sleeping bags are the weather, quality or material, the condition, shape and size, and weight and portability. Now let us consider the state wherein you will be using your sleeping bags.
Mummy bags are the smallest sleeping bags and are very light to carry, making them ideal for those hiking trips. Just like the Tapered bags, they are narrower at the feet, but they are also narrower in body, making them a very snug fit. They also have a hood to fit around the head to help conserve body heat. Many people may find these bags uncomfortable as they are very restricting, but they are the better choice for camping during cold weather seasons because of their warmth, and hiking trips because of their small size.
