1. Shape

According to the shape classification, it can be divided into rectangles and human figures (also known as mummies); the interior of the rectangle is more spacious, and there is no sense of restraint when used. At the same time, it can be opened as a quilt cover, but it is more sunken than a human-shaped sleeping bag; the human shape is warmer. Sleeping bags with double compartments provide better warmth.

2. Material

According to the material, it can be divided into down, feather, man-made fiber and artificial feather. Down feathers and feathers are good in warmth, artificial feather products are made of hollow cotton for warmth, and man-made fibers are better made of acrylic cotton yarn.
