Thanks for the response. Seems he best option is to go for an R Value of 6+

Means more saving but better in the long term.

Yip, I have just bought a Neo Air X Therm, supposed to be the best on the market at R5.7 Very expensive, but hopefully will last me until the end of my life...has a life time guarantee.
Without decent insulation even the best sleeping bags will fail.

Wow, an R value of 6 is very high.

I use a Thermarest sleeping pad, think it's called the Ridgerest if I'm not mistaken. It has an R-value of 2.5 and it's been sufficient for all my berg hikes. Coldest night I've had was -14 deg in the tent at Giants Castle one night in the snow, and I was fine. I guess everyone's experiences cold differently, but for the berg 6 is high. if you want to err on the safe side then this number will be perfect though.
