It's really light and fast and easy to set up. The first night in it I jumped in with everything damp in a rain and snow storm on a 35 degree night. In the morning there was some condensation, but just a little dampness on the outside of my sleeping bag near the toe. On night two I did things properly and got in dry. There were sprinkles and wind overnight at about 35 degrees, but inside everything was dry in the morning. The zipper and vent design is great. The bug net isn't in your face. Getting the one pole back out of its sleeve takes some practice, but I'm fast at it now. The hoop keeps it from being to claustrophobia-inducing. There is even just barely enough room to read before going to sleep. If your goal is an easy lightweight minimalist shelter that will keep you warm, dry, and bug-free, this seems great. For folks that have never gone the bivy route, do note that this is not a shelter where you can bring your gear inside, play cards, or conveniently change your clothes. It's just a warm dry place to crash before hitting the trail again.
