    As posted above weastern mountineering bags are very nice, I have had a few chances now to push them well below rating, 40f bag down into the 30s and high 20s and a 15f bag down to 5F, cool, but not cold at 3am.

    Look at the loft numbers, WM loft will be higher at a given rating than most other bags. I froze in a 0f synthetic bag be it a few years old at about 10f last spring, and that convinced me.

    Can't wait to try out a highlite inside an ultralite this winter, for me I would think it should work to -15f ?

    My synthetic bag were never as good as their rating and would lose loft after a few uses. I bought down and love it. I would absolutely go with down.
