Sleeping bag shopping

We got new sleeping bags to cut down on weight. To try them one must get in!
The one we both got is 800+ fill-power grey goose down, rated to -3, and most important, it is super light with 690 gr (regular for me), and packs down to 3.8 l. That's less than a third of the weight and volume compared to the one I own.
It is the MEC Merlin.. No frills on this bag.

Our target weight for everything we will take with us is 20 kg each. Then we add food, water and fuel when we are out hiking.
