  The North Face Inferno Endurance Review By the Everest GearGal


We took one of these to Everest with us for the Mallory and Irvine Expedition. Sleeping in a T-shirt at 8300 meters! Ok on to the Review By the Everest GearGal.

The North Face Inferno Endurance sleeping bag is made from the warmest 800+ fill down, designed to keep you warm in the harshest environments during sub-zero conditions. Stuffed with Eastern European goose down feathers, this bag offers superior warmth, and loft so big it will be the inspiration helping you down from the summit and back into camp. If you have the endurance to make it back to your bag, the Inferno will keep your body cooking in temperatures down to -40°F.

Aside from seeking out the world’s finest goose down the Inferno Endurance is constructed with leading edge technology. Ripple construction using a modified “V” pattern distributes down evenly keeping the insulation uniform throughout the bag and making cold spots history. The Oxford cloth-lined footbox will sooth your frozen toes with soft, warm layers of comfort. As the body starts warming the heat will be safely trapped inside the bag due to the adjustable down-filled draft collar, an oversized top draft tube and a five-chamber hood, which keeps the head as happy as the toes. To rid the bag of all dead space there is a flat cord for hood adjustments and a shock cord to cinch the jacket close to the chest, keeping you warm throughout the long night.

While the inside of this bag is luxuriously soft due to the Pertex® microlight taffeta lining, the outside of the bag is durable, waterproof and breathable because of the Pertex® Endurance™ coating the shell. Inside the bag a cloth-lined zipper column protects the lining from snags and easy-grab pull-tabs allow for a quick get away. You will sleep warm inside the Inferno Endurance, so well they had to add a head level watch pocket to make sure you make it to the next days adventure.
