Montbell Down Hugger 800 #2

Hi guys, who's got one of these and what's your thoughts?
https://en.montbell.jp/products/goods/disp.php?product_id=1121290
Looking at upgrading my Fairydown bag that I've used for over 15 years and never been cold in it but it is 1.4 kg and the down hugger is half that weight for what I suspect a similar comfort rating (My Fairydown doesn't have a rating).
I wont be chashing Tahr over winter so don't need super warm, the most I really do is under 1000m in winter, tent or hut and I always have a down jacket and thermals if needed.
Do you think I will warm enough in it?
Cheers
Possum
