Comments about The North Face Inferno +0 Sleeping Bag:
I have three bags in this temperature range, Marmot Membrain, Western Mountaineering Kodiak MF and The North Face Inferno 0.
All tested with just a bivy and a Exped Downmat 9.
The warmth of the Inferno was the warmest, Membrain came in second and the Kodiak felt the coldest. However, keep in mind that the Membrain has a water resistant shell, a added benefit if one does not want to use the bivy.
The Inferno felt fairly roomy, three more inches would have been great so I could have the option of wearing my down jacket in the bag. The Western Mountaineering felt the most roomy.
The Inferno had the best loft with 850 down. It also claims it is Eastern European Goose down, but from my experience this is just marketing scam. The loft provided the best warmth. The shell is thin but not the thinnest out there. Hence, it will compress down fairly well but not the smallest. It's a compromise of strength, warmth and weight rather then a extreme of any one. The shell is breathable but not waterproof, hence meant to be used in a tent or bivy. The superior loft of the Inferno won by a large margin. The Inferno is now my default winter bag for temperatures 15 F and up.
If I wanted one change I would like 3 additional inches at least at the shoulders so I can use this bag with a down jacket.
Testing condition - snow storm, approx. 25 F, wind gusts approx. 40mph. in a bivy.
