RATING AND REVIEWS

Bomber

5

The material is bomber, it looks like it will last a long time. It's also very roomy. I'm 6'2" 185 lb and I have no problem

Great Bivy

Great, I lost the instructions on how to pack it back in the stuff sack and that seems important because there is a little wire going through the back to keep its shape. Also if you order this know that you should get stakes/s-hook/string in addition because it does not come with any of that

Perfect for the forever alone soloist.

It's a perfect balance of lightweight and comfort. Being 5'10 180lbs I had ample room in both length and width. The pole is great for keeping the shell off you face. The seams seem well done and the bottom layer is thick and durable. Good to note that the pole only works for the shell, when you have the shell open and using the net the net will sit on your face which is no problem. I believe it is a much better option than a one person tent, as long as you can sacrifice not being able to sit up inside (getting dressed and undressed takes some practice).

I just wanted to report that i love this bivy. It has been liberating using it and seeing the stars from my comfy shelter. I do not understand the complaints from folks who have trouble getting in and out of it. Wha? I never had the slightest problem getting in and out of it.

Awesome

Took this gem on a Grand Teton and Rainier climb and it performed flawlessly. I'm 6' and it has plenty of room for me. I had no issues with condensation. My only concern is the bug mesh. It is zipped in a strange way and occasionally gets caught in the main zipper.

Love it!

Great bivy. Roomy. Packs easily. Ultra fast to setup. Used in Monkman Provincial Park, British Columbia in early September. It was rainy and near 32F at night. Kept me dry and comfortable. I noticed the review regarding condensation. From my experience some condensation is quite normal from our respiration. I did not have issues with a wet sleeping bag, though mine is made with water repellent down.

condensation tips

excellent lightweight shelter.. condensation can be a problem in certain conditions but ive worked it out.

Doesn't live up to claims

I tested this bivy hiking two weeks on the west highland way in Scotland. It held out the rain but I frequently had a LOT of condensation on the inside of my bivy and it never actually hit freezing. Enough condensation was present to the point that my sleeping bag was quite wet at the tip and on the sides. A less important issue, but something to note, is that the insect mesh layer is really easy to get caught in the outer zipper and I made a small hole in mine within a week that I had to glue. This was partially my fault, but still something to note for people purchasing: use caution when zipping.

Outstanding bivy bag!

I purchased this in August of 2014 and have used it several times, both in winter, as well as wamer applications. I have yet to experience any condensation and this is my lightweight alternative now to bringing a tent. I am somewhat claustrophobic, but have done fine in this, with the headroom that the pole offers.
