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.

Also to consider is the wet or dry conditions. If you are backpacking on the northwest then expect wet conditions. Do not pick sleeping bags with down fill as it loses much of its insulating capability when wet. Choose light down sleeping bags only if you are traveling southwest where the conditions are desert dry. Choose those with synthetic fill for wet conditions.

Ever been on an overnight camping or backpacking trip but didn't have a sleeping bag so you borrowed one from a friend or someone you knew? Then, after a long day of playing and hiking it was time for bed and you looked forward to getting some sleep because you were so tired? So you crawled into that bag only to find through the course of the night that you either froze to death because you weren't warm enough or tossed and turned because of discomfort or maybe even both. Ultimately, what was supposed to be a great time left you cranky and exhausted because of a lack of sleep?

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.

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.

Before choosing a sleeping bag, it can be helpful to know what some of the key differences are between the backpacking sleeping bag and other sleeping bags. The needs of a backpacker lead to special considerations that the backpacker must address:

There are basically two types of sleeping bags. One is the mummy bag and the other is the "old school" rectangular sleeping bag. Now mind you, ain't nothing wrong with old school at all. In fact, it may be your preference once you discover what it's like verses the mummy bag.

The story goes that Freydis Eiriksdottir, the daughter of Viking Erik the Red, invented the first sleeping bag on her journey to North America in 1000, made from one of the sails of her ship. Of course, sleeping bags have come a long way since she sailed around the world, and the manufacturers have paid close attention to the needs of consumers, producing sleeping bags for every camping, hiking, mountain climbing, canoeing, fishing and hunting adventure.
