Iメve used it on two winter outings now. First was a January trip into Glacier park. Built a snow trench and was sweating all night. Second trip was last night. Headed into the Montana Rockies for an overnighter. When I reached camp, I started digging a snow cave and after three feet of digging I found ICE. I was too exhausted to do anything else so I just made a shelf and put the bivy up. It anchors in quite well with the loops. Throughout the night the wind blew ONE FOOT of snow on top of me, I recall waking up on occasion to shake what I thought were a few inches off. Nope, when I unzipped in the morning my boots, gear everything outside was under a foot of snow. This bivy kept me 100% dry and protected from the elements. Protip, boot a hand warmer in your boots and let the wind bury them in snow, theyメll be warm in the morning. Zipper is somewhat tedious, though I wouldn't knock the bivy because of that. Fits me, 5メ9ヤ a thermarest zlite pad, and a 0メ sleeping bag perfectly with room to spare.

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.

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.

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.

Kept me dry in wet humid conditions. I've used this bivy twice now in Olympic National Park--one on a dry climb and the other a wet. It kept me dry on both occasions with no condensation, even though the dew was heavy outside of the bag. My only complaint might be that it is a little hard to get into, since there is no lengthwise zipper, but without one the advantage is there is no way for this bag to leak. The mosquito net that touches your face when in use did not bother me. It is made of bombproof fabric and I can tell it will last for years. There is no place here to add a photo or I would add one of this product at my stay at Constance Lake.

this bivy is awesome. worth every penny. there was alot of thought that went into this product it is reinforced and sturdy where need be and feels beefy all the while lightweight. there is piping around the entrance which is genius.
