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.

Lastly, you might want to consider portability, compactness - ease of carrying your sleeping bags. Your bags should not be greater than three pounds for carrying. Neither should it be too big according to your carrying capacity (Except if you are going winter camping with expected bigger winter bags). There are compression sacks for bulky bags but remember that this could damage the bag's filling in the long run and affect its insulation. The most compressible sleeping bags are down bags. You can fit them in a backpack.

Everyone gets grumpy if they've had a bad night's sleep. When you're tired, there's little energy or little patience for very much. You won't have a very enjoyable stay if you spend all night tossing and turning, unable to get comfortable or feeling too cold. Come the morning, you won't be up for much. You'll be lethargic and miserable, and it will constantly be on the back of your mind that you have another night of the same to endure. And what if you're on a hiking trip and you have miles of terrain lying in wait before you? Do you think, with no rest throughout the previous night, that you would look upon this with excited glee? When energy and high spirits are needed, a good nights rest is vital.

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.

If you like hiking, mountain climbing, or just traveling and camping out, then sleeping bags come in very handy. Sleeping bags are comfortable readymade beds. Very easy to set up. You will just lay it and you are ready to use it. But note that not all sleeping bags are the same. You have to take in some considerations before choosing the best sleeping bags for you. How are you going to use it? You must first check your condition and needs.

When you're heading off camping, consider the time of year you will be going and whether or not the nights will be cold. Also take into consideration whether you feel hot or cold when you sleep. If you feel the cold, you may want to think about a camping mat to sleep on which will protect you from the cold night ground and provide you with added warmth. It's far easier to unzip a sleeping bag and cool down if you are feeling hot, than it is to shake off the cold.

The backpacking sleeping bag must be light. A typical backpacker will already be carrying food, extra clothing for rain or snow, fire-starting and cooking gear, flashlights, water bottles, first aid supplies and other survival gear, and any special equipment for traversing the terrain the backpacker will be in, such as ropes, pitons, etc. Adding a 25 pound sleeping bag to this load can make the weight unmanageable for someone not blessed with a Herculean physique.

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).
