comment Why some sleeping bags have four temperature ratings while others have only one?
possible, yes. At least you have to assume that the figures given are more or less useless or not comparable. As Ryley stated in the answer I have linked, they might write a rating at their bags which they expect protects them from being sued for, plus some error margin.

comment Arm compression sleeves for climbing
I still do, as the question was "Are there anecdotal or actual studies on the effectiveness of forearm compression sleeves for climbing?" Also you state that "Veins are through internal segments of the body and Arteries are in the outer segment" but according to my knowledge and Wikipedia it's reverse: "Veins are [...] often closer to the skin [than arteries]."
