Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Made! Work outside in Utah where the winter is windy and freezing, and there are poky plants everywhere. I got this Bivy because I sleep under an open tarp, and I wanted to protect my pad and sleeping bag from the elements and spiky plants. It works very well and is very durable while still being fairly light. It also seems to breathe fairly well, although there will be a little wetness in the morning. My only complaint is that it does not unzip further, making it hard to slide my sleeping bag in from the top, and hard to air out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bivy is the best. This is great for when you are the 3rd wheel on a backpacking trip, or if you are going to be bivvying on a ledge. It doesn't have the extra pole around your shoulders which makes it lighter, more compact, but slightly less comfortable. In my opinion it's better to go with the Aurora unless you really have trouble sleeping without more air space near your head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this again From the weight, size and feel of this bivy I thought that it for sure would not hold up to the elements. I went camping in it the night that I had received it and it worked great. Had some good downpours over night where I stayed completely dry. Only thing that I saw was that the bug net lays on your face, there is a spot that you could tie to and keep it up but then you would have to camp under a branch or construct something. Overall though it did the job that it was meant to do and did it well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A surplus bivy has some advantages Honestly, I returned this bivy and purchased an army surplus bivy on ebay, for the reason that the army bivy zips partway down the side. Oh yeah, and it was less than $60. This is basically a stripped down version of the other O.R bivy sacks. The Alpine version has pole(s). The Advanced version has pole(s) and a vent at the foot box area. I have heard the Advanced bivy bug netting can be removed, but I can't confirm that. A 25x77 sleeping pad fits inside. It is Gore-Tex, which is awesome, but the only way in and out is through the opening you see in the product photo(s). I am not sure why O.R doesn't add a watertight zipper down at least one side. Maybe they wanted to save a quarter (I know it would cost more), but in reality, they lost a customer, because I prefer the army bivy style (ie: zipper down the side). The stuff sack could be a bit bigger. Just stuff the bivy in, don't fold it. If you force it you can fit the bivy in, but it's tight, at least it was for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is the first commercial bivy that I have ever bought. Before I found out about this bivy I always used military surplus products such as the ECWS. Needless to say I will never go back, this bivy out-performs other bivy's in weight, comfort and keeping dry. I have used this bivy in the wet, rainy forests of WA up to altitudes of 10k in temperatures ranging from 30 degrees to 60 degrees in the spring and fall, and, in the high desert mountains of NV up to altitudes of 7k in temperatures below 30 degrees waking up covered in snow. Now we have two of these great bivy's and love them. They keep bugs out and keep you dry 100% of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful in all respects This bivy has carried me through two seasons of guiding kayaking and mountaineering in the North West. I've seen many other guides with many other bivies and I can say I am happy with my purchase. It has remained water proof through down pours. It looks almost brand new after spending two seasons thrown on oyster shells and rock. It is like a second home to me. The only downside is that it, like all bivies, does condensate a bit. If you want a shelter without condenstation, buy a double walled tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, packable and comfortable I have slept out in my Aurora bivy at least one night almost every month in the year since I bought it. This shelter has served me well in the deep snow and February cold of Yellowstone in my -20 sleeping bag. It works even better when night temperatures are closer to freezing or above and I'm in my +20 bag. I use it whenever I camp out because I prefer sleeping directly under the stars and only crawl into the tent when the weather gets nasty. A reliable and versatile piece of gear I use regularly.
