    If its a -60C bag then that would suit Everest, Antarctica etc.

    If -6°C I would suggest look at Mountain Warehouse guide and the weather forecast for the weekend and make an informed decision. Make sure your kit is suitable for the weather and/or seasons.

    Hope this helps.

    hehe, I have no idea how to do the correct "oC".
    Ill definitely check the weather closer to the date but wanted to check your experience (statistics year by year :p )

    Ive done a 0C night at Brecon Beacons so the rest of my gear can handle rough and wet British weather.

    cheers
