- AAnonymousI recommend this productRated 5 stars3 years agoExcellent lightweight bivy option for almost all conditions.
Overall, I've had very good experiences with this bivy so far. It has performed well in inclement weather. I've stayed dry in light/moderate rain overnight (wasn't continuous). I also stayed dry when camping in a partial snow cave (not a lot of actual precipitation, just mostly snow melt drip). The breathability is limited in this fabric, but that is the nature of bivy's in my experience. The material is also thin, so just treat it with respect and you'll do fine.Was this helpful?

The fabric is soft and breathable and still waterproof. I slept right in the danger temp zone next to a river after a week of hard rain and I was fine, sleeping with the bug net closed only. I did have a guy line keeping the pole from flopping down.Was this helpful?

I rated it at a "4" because I've only used a half dozen times but it has been flawless. Pro's: lots of room, breathed well in semi-humid conditions, packs up really small, waterproof, pole works great, cheap! Con's: I see the 2.5 layer not breathing as well as its 3 layer counterparts once the cold weather camping starts up but cannot say for sure, almost too roomy/ or baggy.Was this helpful?
