Quality product that works as advertised (Review by MontereyBS)
Quality

I'm a backpacker and a motorbike travel enduro camper...
Nothing monumental, but it's easy to set up and take down. Works as advertised. Relatively light and packs small. I've not had problems with set-up, tear own, zippers, condensation, or anything else. I like this system for a solo attack on anything you might consider. I've looked at other solutions, but haven't come up with anything that makes me want to change direction.

excellent bivy needs minor adjustments (Review by michaelmrc)
Quality

received this bivy from OR last month have tried it out on 3 occasions now. first night out was up the mountain mild drizzly conditions and the bivy performed excellent as far as keeping me dry and very warm. only thing that annoyed me was the 2 pole system as many other reviewers have mentioned doesnt stay in the position you want it to. condensation was nill quality of the product is excellent. 2nd night out was in torrential downpour had the bivy done up almost all the way. temperature was approx 5deg Celcius woke up in the morning with just a minimal amount of condensation on the pole liners but nothing anywhere else. 3rd night out was in minus 3 conditions with light slow bag performed excellent warm dry again only minimal condensation on the pole liners. things i found annoying are the pole end snaps sometimes pop off and the fact that the 2 pole system doesnt stay in place say if you want lots of ventilation it tends to fall down into the closed position. i minimized this by rigging up a line that held it open. 2nd annoyance is the stuff bag that it comes with is almost impossible to get the bivy bag into when youve been out in the field with it . would be nice if these were addressed by OR. i give this bivy bag a 5 star rating even with these minor annoyances.

I have owned two of the Advanced Bivy. I don't recall what happened to the first, but this one, which I have cared for like my life depends on it, lost all of the seal coat on the floor at the beginning of an 18 day trip in the Smokies, leaving my down bag at the mercy of the elements. This critical failure could have been disastrous, if the weather hadn't turned mild for the last half of the trip. I will be looking for a new bivy without a more permanent floor material. Heck, this one is [$] more than it was last time I bought it. Yeesh.

I use this product for self support kayaking adventures. It is small enough to fit into tight spaces and quick and easy to assemble at the camp site. In summer I use a light weight sleeping bag inside and during my winter trips (0-30F) I use a 2 layer system down sleeping bag inside. I use 20"-24" wide sleeping matts inside based on wether I am truck camping or on an expedition.

After ~20 years I finally got back on the trail (actually more bushwacking than trails) taking a solo foot excursion deep into the BWCA (northern MN). I'm not a big strong guy so I wanted to go light for a tent. This bivy worked out perfect. I went early before bug season but I could see where the netting would be handy later on using its full ventilation position. I can't opine on the performance in really wet weather but looking at the design and the use of gore tex; I'm sure it would do fine. It did fine with the light snow. I did have trouble keeping the bivy in the full ventilation position (it would close up on me) but that might have been operator error. I like the design where your sleeping pad is held in position by straps. I'm anxious to get out on my next solo trip with this bivy.

This is about the perfect bivy for peak bagging excursions. It's light weight, but has more ventilation options than a simple bivy sack. The poles give adequate space and make things less claustrophobic. You can open it up for a warm night and the bug screen will protect you from mosquitoes. In colder whether there is another pole configuration which will keep it a bit more cozy.The only downside I can think of is the pole ends can be easy to lose if you don't carefully pack everything away.

Great for ultra lightweight camping, snowshoeing & back-country ski trips. Ideal for late-afternoon or night search and rescue mission, or as emergency backup shelter.

Lived out of this bivy in 4 season scenarios, major storms and x-country cycle and hiking trips. Went through a few lesser prodcuts before I justified the extra expense; its worth it, bomproof and best on market

I use this bivy wherever I might be. It's waterproof which is perfect for my coastal kayaking. It's lightweight and small pack size is great for bike touring or weekend hikes. Gonna use it for some backcountry boarding soon which I know will be a lot warmer than my buddy who is sleeping under a tarp. This is a product I bring on every excursion I go on and is great for emergencies. The zipper can be better approved and maybe add a elastic to the poles so they aren't so easy to lose. I do wish it cam in a more neutral color for stelth camoing but it is the best bivy I have used thus far.
