I've used this bag for summer mountaineering bivvis (with a G-tex bivvi sack) both times to around -5C so had to wear my thermals and a thin fleece top to stay warm enough. The bag is made of 1.1oz taffeta, packs down to the size of a small coconut.

Overall a good bag and the lack of a cross block baffle allows you to shift the down from the top to the bottom depending on the situation.

It is a snug fit but the draft collar is not existent. With a warm hat and neck warmer, this bag is great for alpine summit pushes/bivvis.
