The opinion of Aventure Nordique

The Lafayette is a superlight high-altitude expedition bag that is spacious enough to be used in combination with the Combi suit. It has front 1/3-length zipper allowing you to easily crawl in wearing a down suit; a draft collar, which does not alter its shape when tightened; a down draw cord for your waist and a reinforced knee section maintaining the bag’s differential cut, no matter how much you move in your sleep.

Like Valandre’s other bags, it uses the tubular bell construction with pre-cut circular baffles that are filled with the famous French Fat Grey goose. This goose can migrate at 33,000 feet (10,000m) in –60°F (-50°C) temperatures for days on end, and the down is harvested right before the traditional migration time when it is fresh, clean and at its plumpest.

This lightweight bag is often used along with a down suit for speed climbing in the Himalaya and is an excellent choice for fast-and-light alpinists.
