30% off a grand is about 600 plus or minus a cats whisker.
it is cheap.
better a goose down in the pack than a chocky in the pocky.
being "too hot" in Alpine conditions will not kill you...in the main...but, when the "big 3" loom, if any of the "Big 4" fail, there must be a contingency.

Also if you are planning on sleeping in the huts, you will be dry, and out of the wind. Safe travels, Jeffoir.

As most of us know. the RRP of brands like MacPac is a bit of a joke, but the sale prices, such the OP obtained, provide a good product at a good price, so well done !
Weight and packed bulk may be an issue but personal tradeoffs probably come into play there. One thing is for sure - you will not be cold

Even One Planet and Western Mountaineering bags are cheaper than this. The fact it isn't on the website and uses the cheapest possible down makes me wonder if its a one off for some kind of re-enactment display.

As a comparison, the One Planet Bushlite -15:
Temp rating to EN 13537, -36degC.
(-8 comfort, -15 transition, -36 extreme)
'Sale' price $550
Yours should be a little bit warmer. But the OP Bushlight -15 is still a hell of a great bag for the money, features and weight.
Does yours have a full zip or 3/4?
