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.
Temperature ratings are pretty important pieces of information to consider when choosing a bag as well. And although mummy and rectangular sleeping bags can cover a wide variety of temperatures, mummy bags are the typical designs for the extreme polar temps such as those you would find in the Andes.
In 1917 the zipper was perfected and, of course, these made for a great seal for the rectangular sleeping bags allowing a persons body heat to stay trapped longer therefore keeping them warmer on those cold winter nights. Basically the term sleeping bag essentially means a protective bag for someone to sleep in. and is basically two blankets that can be zipped together in cases where a bed is not available. There are a couple different shapes of bags outlined below.
