I was reading reviews on previous models....

I was reading reviews on previous models. Many said the temp rating was inaccurate. Has this issue been addressed? Any thoughts and feelings about this latest version would be apprieciated.

I've used a few different Lafuma's and so far they have all been true to temp ratings.

Yes, we have address our temp ratings. They are very accurate and are upheld by the Europeon standards. The 800 kept me very warm in my tent at 30 degrees. It;s a great bag, especialy for the price!

I have a warm and light 600 and 800. Both are great bags for the price and weight. I have not had an issue with warmth. Most company’s recommended you sleep with a base layer and hat. The ratings are not a very good judge. It all depends on body weight, how much water you had during the day, if you sleep hot or warm ECT.

I have this exact sleeping bag for 3 years. It is a good quality bag with two issues. The first is that the bag is very sensitive to condensation, it easily penetrates the outer layer. This is not an issue if you treat the outer layer with a water repellent spray. The second issue is the temp rating. I can compare this to the marmot, mountain hardware and western mountaineering bags, this one is by far the least accurate. At under 50 degrees (no wind) I need long base layers. If you have a tent calculate the temp inside. under 40 I need heavy base layers or double layers, for example a patagonia capalene 3 is not enough when the temp goes down closer to 40 (even at 45 its not enough to make me warm). when it goes to 35-40 range, I need a jacket as well.
Other bags require the jacket level only when the temp is within 5 degrees of rating for me, so I feel there is somewhat of a 5 degree gap in rating here. Not a big deal, especially given the price and weight, but important to know.

Mine has the European standard range of temps on it. 41/32/3.2 F. But temp ratings are relative because of individual differences and differences in conditions (wind, humidity, tent size, clothing worn, and may physiological as well as psychological factors. It is all very confusing, but remember this. If a bag has same weight of down fill of the same quality (loft) then any average designed mummy will give you the same warmth. 2 lbs 2 oz of 600 down is adequate in my opinion for three seasons. I have no condensation problems and mine sheds water better than I would expect (and I don't plan on it). I think you are steering in the right direction looking at this down bag and ones of comparable weight.
