Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Design: 3 D mummy (sarcophagus style)
Fill: 850 down
Temperature Rating: -59 deg. Farenheit
Weight: 3.2 pounds
Price Paid: $550 US

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...
