I used this bag for a couple of years in the mountains. Rated as '3 seasons', I would rather say '2 seasons'. The -5 C degrees comfort rating is too optimistic. At around 0 C temperature the sleeping is no longer comfortable in this bag.
The filling is thin and maybe lost some power in time, but, currently, I often saw all the down agglomerated in a corner of one baffle, which leaves big cold areas on the body.
It's a good, light and compact bag for summer usage but I think there are better options for this.

Just got back from a survival training clinic (for a wilderness medicine program). I spent three nights, one in a tent and two in a makeshift shelter built out of leafs and evergreen branches. It drizzled nearly the entire trip. The kind of drizzle that seems to be only miniscule until suddenly you realize that everything you have is soaked, the inside of my jacket pockets were wet from the moisture in the air. The average temperature at night was between 25 and 30 degrees. I slept comfortably every night in my underwear, and had to shake the moisture off of the bag in the morning before packing it.
My first impression was there was no way it would live up to its 20 degree rating mainly because of how thin it seemed, I was wrong. This is my first down bag, I am converted. I worried a little about moisture, but as mentioned before the shell performed flawlessly. It packs down in the provided compression sack beautifully and regains full loft quickly when unpacked. I got a great deal on it and would have paid the retail price after seeing its performance.

Lafuma took the classic Warm 'n Light 1000 Down Sleeping Bag and buffed it up so you can sleep in even more comfort wherever your wanderlust takes you. The goose down insulation provides one of the best warmth-to-weight ratios in the world, and the Tactel lining works like high-grade nylon even though it feels a whole lot softer. The twin lace compression bag lets you shrink your bag down so you have more room in your pack for good things to eat or maybe even a bottle of the good stuff to celebrate the end of your trek.
