Back before time began, there were just sleeping bags, no gender specified - everyone pretty much survived.  I wouldn't worry about the difference too much.

Presumably, the woman's bag conforms more closely to the different contours of the female form.  I would be more concerned with getting an appropriate comfort rating for the bag.
