Good for the money

(5/5)

Good protection from water. Takes little space in a backpack and is quite lightweight., 11 Aug. 2014

None of the group believed that I will be dry in the morning, but I think I slept better than most of them. Zippers work well without hitches. When unzipped provides quite a large opening through which you can comfortably sleep in the sleeping bag. This is an advantage compared to other similar bivys. Membrane provides good protection from water. A slight condensation of the moisture in the exhaled air appears and collects in the lower part behind the head (sometimes drops on your nose) but this is not a problem. The only disadvantage compared with larger tents is that you can not get the backpack and shoes inside. And you can not put a raincoat before you leave the bivy. This is not a problem of the product but the concept. If it does not rain in the morning everything is OK.
