I'd also like to be able to feel safe if I *did* get stuck outside on a night I thought it would be more like 15 and it ended up being 0-5, though this would be something that would happen rarely, if at all.

1) Will a 0 degree bag be only a little warmer than a 15 degree bag, that it's not worth paying another $300 just to basically tread water in terms of my ability to be comfortable during rare high-altitude/high-wind bivies?
2) Will a -20 degree bag be so absurdly warm that I wouldn't actually be able to use it for 20-25 degree nights and would waste a bunch of money to end up still having a gap in between 10 degrees and 25 degrees where I had no bag that allowed me to sleep comfortably?

I have a few pieces of chocolate and a packet of almond butter with some tea before bed and it's awesome.
