Topic - Sleeping Bag Dilema

rackandruin - on 24 Feb 2014
Im in the market for a new sleeping bag and seek advice.
My needs -the ability to handle temps of around -5c easily/Compact/Weight/Quality
Thinking of one of these two

Last years model of the ME Lightline XL with 615 grams of 750+ fill Goose Down- has an ME comfort rating of -5c and an extreme(ie youre not quite dead) rating of -22c. Driloft cover, Ive had ME bags before and liked them but not so sure of EXL systems tightness

A Rab Ascent700 has 700grams of 650fill duck down Rated -9 comfort and an extreme of -27c
Had a Rab bag before and wasnt that impressed with longevity/down leakage however its rated a warmer bag

Both bags weigh almost the same Quality more important than price
Are ME conservative with their ratings or are Rab optimistic?
