The North Face Inferno Sleeping Bag: -40 Degree Down


Product Details

This Inferno Sleeping Bag is The North Face's warmest expedition bag and is designed for the world's harshest environments. The North Face treated this bag's light and lofty 800-fill down insulation with ProDown water-resistance to retain its warmth in wet weather. Neovent Air fabric adds extra water-resistance to the hood, back, and footbox for moisture-riddled tents. A generous mummy cut helps you layer up before you go to bed, and the half-length center zipper offers easy entry. The North Face also added a cinch-cord at the hood and draft tubes at the collar and overlap to keep frigid winds at bay. This bag also features an internal pocket to insulate electronics and valuables.

Price : $ 728.95

Lightweight Sleeping Bags Checklist

Sure It's Warm Enough? Lightweight bags are meant for use in weather between 30-50 degrees. But, remember, it's always prudent to add on at least 10 degrees to the bags rating. Thus, a bag rated to 40 degrees might only keep you warm in 50 degree weather.
Down or Synthetic? Each have their advantages. Down is less bulky and weighs a few ounces less. Synthetic costs less (usually) and is easier to dry - you can just toss it in the dryer.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A sleeping bag is useless without a sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad, get one. For lightweight sleeping bags (thus used in warm weather), you don't need a super thick or winter-style one.
Ideal Uses for a Lightweight Bag. Where you know...for sure...that the temperature will stay at least 10-15 degrees above the sleeping bags rating. And, where every ounce and cubic inch of space is at a premium. Lightweight bags are often used by climbers and bike campers/travelers. For backpacking in the mountains, a lightweight bag is NOT recommended!
