Tapered sleeping bags grow narrower towards the feet, providing you with a close fit. The closeness of these bags create more warmth inside whilst sleeping, however, the lack of free space restricts movement and may not suit many people. They are also smaller than rectangular ones and can be rolled up more compactly, making them easier to carry whilst on hiking trips.

Rectangular sleeping bags are the original and most common shape you'll see on the market. These are simple but effective designs and continue to dominate the market for recreational camping and slumber parties alike. While originally being just two blankets zipped together, over the years the technology has allowed manufacturers t fill them with synthetic material creating better heat retention than the old styles. Some are filled with synthetic fiber, wool, cotton or down however if you're allergic to down, this may not be an option for you. There are many debated as to which one keeps you warmer and it really just a matter of opinion. I personally don't think there is much of a noticeable difference between the fillings however synthetic fibers will not absorb water and will keep you warmer even if the bag is a bit wet. A wet down sleeping bag is very hard to dry out and is considered worse than having no sleeping bag at all. In cases where you're in a survival situation synthetic is definitely the choice you should go with. Wool tends to stay dry however it is much heavier and is harder to transport because of that extra weight. Synthetic will keep you warm however it tends to compress easier and the bottom of the bag will let cool air in because of this. Hanging them and changing the position when storing is the preferred method of many outdoor enthusiasts as this keeps them from forming dead spots where the fibers have been crushed and rendering them ineffective at keeping you warm on cold evenings.

There are some sacrifices though in going with a bag that offers all that room to move. The biggest possibly being your heating capabilities and warmth ratings. See, while having all that room is nice, just like having a big house with tall ceilings it takes a lot more to heat the inside. The extra space requires more effort to keep warm and therefore, isn't as effective for keeping out the cold as a mummy bag is. Of course having said that, the pajamas you choose to sleep in can help make up for the warmth differences between the bags as well...up to certain temperatures. Suffice to say that artic temps may require more than a teddy or pair of boxers.

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.

Camping sleeping bags are much more than just sleeping bags. They are the determining factor of whether or not your camping trip is an enjoyable one.

Rectangular sleeping bags go as far back as the late 1800's when a mail order catalog pioneer Pryce Pryce-Jones came up with the idea to connect 2 rectangular rugs together with ties. He is considered to be the inventor of today's modern rectangular sleeping bag design. He originally came up with the idea for the Russian army so they could carry their beds wherever they needed to be. It was a revolutionary idea until the army fell to its foes. After the war he had many of these bags still left and decided to market them to the public. The idea caught on and eventually came with the option for a built in pillow for more comfort.

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.
