The backpacking sleeping bag must adequately protect the backpacker from the elements. This is a more complicated issue to address and will be explored in more depth below.

The final biggest consideration in choosing a bag is the insulation that is used in that bag. There are basically two types of insulations available. One is the goose down and the other is a synthetic blend. While both will do the job to keep you warm, they both have their pros and cons. For example, the goose down is soft and very lightweight contributing to the ease of travel when hiking. However, it is much more costly and if it happens to get wet, doesn't dry easily. Synthetic insulation on the other hand is heavier, bulkier, and not as soft. Yet, the cost isn't as hard on your pocket book and the wet weather isn't as big an issue because the synthetic blend dries in a quicker manner than its down counterpart. In either case, some type of padding under the bag is highly recommended.

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.

As the modern-day equivalent of the old explorers, the backpacker will be exposed to all kinds of climatic conditions on many different types of terrain. He or she must be self-sufficient and prepared for the worst at all times. And preparedness starts before leaving home, with the selection of backpacking gear. Of particular importance is your backpacking sleeping bag. Not getting a good nights rest can lead to mistakes that can mean the difference between enjoying that view of the sunset from a mountain ridge and seeing that same sunset from a Search and Rescue helicopter.

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.

So those are the things to note. There may be other considerations in choosing a sleeping bag. However, I hope these ones certainly help you narrow down your choices.

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.
