A sleeping bag with that temperature rating isn't going to compress very small at all.
I dont think a 3 season rating goes that low either.Have a look at down bags as they compress smaller than synthetic bags of the same rating

Just had a look at them on the woodlore site,I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need one.
Seriously if they do go that low get one.I've got a snugpak elite 5 that is rated down to the same temperatures as the osprey but is really big even when compressed (26x26), mind you it is really warm, but it is rated as a four season bag.I suppose it's true ,you can't rely on season rating from different manufacturers being the same.

Hi, get yourself a snugpak bag i've got the elite 5 and it packs as small as my mountain equipment down bag of the same rating. snugpak is also made in England, the best quality bag i've had.

Just had a look at the bag on woodlore site it does seen a small pack size for the rating given price is not bad too. that makes a change for woodlore eh. but he the specs and sizes are correct i'd go for it.

I think the season ratings are different because snugpak's british and the woodlore bag is from norway i think.
