Topic - Sleeping Bag Ratings


I'm looking for a new sleeping bag, and can't decide between Synthetic or down. I'm aware of all the usual arguments that down's lighter and packs smaller, but that Synthetic can get wet and is cheaper etc etc... but it doesn't really answer the question.

So, I've got a couple of options lined up, Down & Synthetic, and need to decide what to go for. What I think is going to tip the balance is the temperature ratings on them...Planning to use it for Scottish Winter bivvies and Summer Alpine Bivvies too...what kind of rating should I be looking for? would a -8 comfort temperature bag be ok, or should i be eering towards -15 or less?
Bear in mind that I'll most likely have some clothing on, the idea of getting Naked in Scotland doens't appeal for all sorts of reasons ;)

Cheers for your advice & help
