The definition of a sleeping bag is a protective bag for a person to sleep in. Your sleeping bag should be just so. This makes the material of your camping sleeping bag just as important. You can find numerous different fillings, from goose down, wool, cotton, and synthetic. However, many outdoor experts consider synthetic materials to be the best. This is due to the fact that it doesn't readily absorb water, and should it get wet, it dries quickly and is still able to provide some degree of warmth. This is a vital feature if you are hiking in adverse weather.

In the middle of cold nights your sleeping bag will be your lifesaver. It is also a good idea to have a pad or a mattress underneath your bag to keep it off the ground.

Sleeping bags are either synthetic-filled or down-filled. Goose down bags are light weight and perfect for backpacking and on your biking trip. Renowned for its superior insulation, goose down is one of the premier sleeping bag materials made to keep the warmth in and keep the cold out. Synthetic sleeping bags are cheaper than down and usually non-allergenic. They are easier to take care of especially if spill is sponged off immediately. Sleeping bag fill will come in both short and long fibers. Many new synthetics use a "hollow fiber" method that keeps sleeping bags light and allows for good compression when packing, while still offering excellent warmth. Long fibers found in sleeping bags with synthetic fill are more stable and will be less likely to shift during use. Short fibers on the other hand, both down fill and synthetic, can shift during use, affecting your sleeping bag's loft and inviting cold air in.

Taking time to think about and choose the right sleeping bag may seem superficial to some people. If you can fit inside and sleep in it, what else is there to think about? But there is so much more you need to take into consideration. As I stated before, it is the determining factor of whether or not your camping trip is an enjoyable one.

Everyone gets grumpy if they've had a bad night's sleep. When you're tired, there's little energy or little patience for very much. You won't have a very enjoyable stay if you spend all night tossing and turning, unable to get comfortable or feeling too cold. Come the morning, you won't be up for much. You'll be lethargic and miserable, and it will constantly be on the back of your mind that you have another night of the same to endure. And what if you're on a hiking trip and you have miles of terrain lying in wait before you? Do you think, with no rest throughout the previous night, that you would look upon this with excited glee? When energy and high spirits are needed, a good nights rest is vital.

Rectangular shaped bags are the most popular and most familiar. These provide you with more room for movement within, reducing that claustrophobic feel to some degree. Because they are of a square shape they can also be zipped to a second to produce a double sized sleeping bag, large enough for two people to sleep in. Or, if you completely dislike the feel of being zipped up, you can leave the bag unzipped entirely and use it as a blanket instead. However, these bags are often fairly big, and may not be ideal for hiking trips as they can be rather bulky and awkward to carry.
