You could think about the Alpkit Skyehigh 600.
Around £125, -5c ish rated, you could always wear warmer layers for extra heat.
Ah. How old is your existing bag - you do realise that synthetic bags have a finite life so if its more that a few years old it may just have worn out.
In addition - from personal experience - as you get older you feel the cold more anyway - just thinking going from an old knackered single season to a quality down bag is quite a jump.
Come to that - givent the current weather - not surprised you were cold on Dartmoor some weeks ago

Unless you are a weirdo like me,
I can sleep comfortably in a +5 down bag, using an Exped SYN UL, in just t-shirt, shorts and socks to -7ish c, -10cish if I wear heavier clothes.
Normally if I expect it to get to -10ish, I'll bring a better bag, just in case. I'd rather be too warm than cold.
Apart from Stephen, who's been out with me before, I think the others on Irish Wild Bimble, where surprised at the bag I brought, (+5c down), and that I stayed warm.
It got to -4c inside my tent at one point! I'd filled a Trekmates 'water basein' and left in porch. In the morning had 1/2" of soild ice on top in morning!!
Well, I'd opt for a decent down bag every time! I just don't want the bulk and weight of synthetic. Obviously you need to look after down more, but it'll look after you and will last very many years.
Ah - just seen this is rather an old thread...
Rob - I think Spoony was asking for an update from Infinite.
Spoony - The Alpkit Skyehigh series seems to be in stock now so it might be worth a look too, Infinite discounted them from his choices because the we're OOS and he wanted a bag quickly.
