Great Bivy if you are a Bivy person!
I like how thin the material is on this bivy. It is really light and easy to set up once you know how. (watch the set up of the OR Helium Bivy if you need help) The longer zipper is really nice for entry and exit. The large mesh area is great for air flow and views on nice nights. I recommend staking it out at the head to help support the pole.
There are a lot of zipper pulls due to the double zippers on the mesh and the body of the bivy. It would be nice if the zippers and pulls were both color coded. Make sure your zippers pulls are on the correct side of the material when zipping it up so that it closes all the way. When zipping the bivy up from the inside, I recommend taking the zipper from the head of the bivy to the waist. This will ensure that the rain collar stays over the exterior of the zipper to keep the water from leaking in. When I zipped it up the opposite way, it would pull the collar back and flip it away from the zipper. (I wish I could show you pictures) This is a great bivy, but I am better suited to tents, otherwise I would give it 5 stars!
