Looking for a -10C down sleeping bag, anyone has an idea where I could procure one. Looking for a down bag to save on space and weight as I mostly solo trek these days. Thanks

Thanks for the reply, checked the option but the sole 1 star review is not very encouraging. Thinking of other options, getting one from China or plan my next trip to Nepal and buying one there.

Abir, I am using forclaz helium, purchased from Decathlon
https://www.decathlon.in/p/8382843_f...g-bag-red.html
Used this bellow -10 during Satopant trek in Nov and other winter treks this served purpose pretty well.
It's down feather compact light weight fits inside the backpack.

I think Nepal is a better option for down bags than India. I checked out Shona's Alpine when I was there last time but ended up hiring a -30C bag from Sportswear International. Shona's gear is well recommended. Their 5 season (-25C) bag can be bought for about the same price as the Forclaz Helium. The only downside might be its bulk.

I know Shona's quite well. I use their -10 sleeping bags for my treks in Nepal. As you said they are good but bulky.
