I purchased this bag a few years ago when Valandre was still relatively unknown (that's why it was not as expensive as they are today). Also, mine is rated to -59 deg.Farenheit not -50 like the ones today. I will say without a doubt this is the best and warmest bag that I have ever used. I own the best (most extreme) sleeping bags from most of the top names i.e. North Face, Marmot and Mountain Hardwear, but in my honest opinion, they don't even come close to the warmth and quality of the Valandre.

This franco-danish sleeping bag (bought 745 Euros Vieux Campeur, paris, france) is maybe the warmest lightweight sleeping bag in the world...u'll be really comfortable even under wet -20° to -30°C...can reach -40°C without big problem...-50°C? (with protective membrana outside and vapor barrier inside maybe...)...a pure himalayan precious stone made to fight even the temperature of the south pole...

I've tested above the Arctic's Circle in LAPLAND, FINLAND, at below 24 Celsius. I'm still hot!
THE BEST OF THE BEST.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Valandre Thor sleeping bag is designed as a winter high altitude expedition bag. The Thor design follows the Odin design but uses slanting baffle walls allowing stuffing the bag with the maximum of down.
Designed as a winter high-altitude expedition bag, the Valandre Thor is an expertly built, lightweight, cold-weather sleeping bag filled with enough down to withstand temperatures found only at the ends of the world.
When you're attempting to reach the heavens on Earth's tallest mountains, it's important to have a god looking out for you. Sure, the Valandre Expedition Thor 4-Degree Down Sleeping Bag isn't exactly like having the Norse god of thunder, lightning, and storms on your side, but it certainly is the next best thing. Lofty 850+ gray goose down insulates you while you recover for the next day's big push. European Norm ratings give this bag a comfort level at 5 degrees Fahrenheit, but Valandre's crew suggest you can survive in temps well below zero, should an unexpected cold front move through the mountains. Thor's nylon ripstop shell maximizes durability and minimizes weight for your convenience. The shell, along with the bag's polyester ripstop lining, has a DWR treatment too so you stay dry when water is an issue. Valandre integrated a static drawcord in the hood to cinch it tightly around your forehead when temps get critical. The bag also has an anatomic draft collar to keep warmth in the bag, while its interlocking draft tube covers the quarter-length zipper to keep cold out.
