Next to consider is the quality or material of your sleeping bags. You must know that sleeping bags' temperatures depend on the type of insulating pads they are made with. A quality sleeping bag you are looking for may just depend on the padding. They work irrespective of the weather conditions outside. Foam core pads are warmer are thicker and warmer than air core pads. Closed cell foam pads add extra warmth - perfect for winter mountain campers. You can also choose from more insulated air mattress bags that are blown up, or those Thermarest style pads, also blown up but mouth-delivered only.

It is important to remember though that the temperature ratings are guides for reference only. Because, just like spicy food, eating a jalapeno pepper for some isn't a big deal...but for others eating one would feel like it would burn the skin right off their tongue. The same goes for a sleeping bag. A +20 degree rating would mean that for most the bag would be warm enough. The best way to pick a warm enough bag is to go with one that handles a 10 degree colder weather than what you're anticipating to be sleeping in. Choosing in that manner should have you...covered. (No pun intended.) And again of course, appropriate sleep wear should accommodate the colder or warmer needs you may have.

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.

If you are going camping and need a sleeping bag, don't just pick the first one you see. Selecting the best one depends on the intended use and how often you plan to use it. Since sleeping bags come in a variety of shapes and sizes and some were made for lower temperatures and retain heat better than others it is important to know which one works best for you. Choosing the proper sleeping bag for your camping style will prevent a lot of aggravation.

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.

After choosing a backpacking sleeping back that will work for you, also consider purchasing a liner for your sleeping bag. Using a liner will cut down on having to wash the entire sleeping bag. This will greatly extend the useful lifetime of your sleeping bag, since washing tends to make the insulating fill "clump", greatly reducing comfort and effectiveness. Choosing a good, quality backpacking sleeping bag and properly caring for it will allow years of backpacking enjoyment.

If you see a +20 degree rating that would mean that the bag should be warm enough for temperatures that are 20 degrees or warmer. And if you see a - 20 degree rating then it has been determined that the bag should be warm enough for minus 20 degree weather.
