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.

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.

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.

The two most common types of sleeping bags are rectangular and mummy or cocoon style. While rectangular shaped ones are probably the most popular style, experienced campers and adventure seekers favor the cocoon designs. The cocoon is a form fitting style that is smaller and lightweight, but still offers the same temperature rating as comparable rectangular sleeping bags. Mummy sleeping bags are roomy, solid, include many technical elements, and are available in a variety of insulation and fabrics. Rectangular sleeping bags give more room to move around and can usually be zipped together with other rectangular bags if needed. The mummy bag conforms more closely to the body than a rectangular bag where heat escapes from the top more quickly. Some semi-rectangular bags come with a contoured hood making up for the heat loss. Common dimensions for rectangle sleeping bags are: 28" x 60" (children), 33" x 75" (adult), 33" x 80" (tall adult), and 39" x 80" (big and tall adult).

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.

Another item you can purchase is a sleeping bag liner. These provide added warmth on cold nights, and can also be removed and washed, saving your sleeping bag from the normal wear and tear.

Generally rectangular sleeping bags are very easy to store and transport as most are folded into halves or thirds, rolled up and then bound together with a band or tied with built in straps. You can carry them on backpacks or throw them in the trunk of your car for your next trip. Many are commonly used for overnighters at a friend's house and are generally called slumber bags. These typically will breathe better than your outdoor bags as they don't have to hold in your body heat as much. These sleeping bags are generally made for getting a comfortable night sleep. Children love these types as they will typically be rectangular sleeping bags and come in all different colors, sizes and designs from their favorite super hero to a princess in pink.

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.
