2.0 out of 5 stars Practical bivy for sub-freezing temps Feb. 23 2012
By Yooper - Published on Amazon.com

I've used this bivy several times since my purchase. In each case the temperatures were below freezing and I was sleeping exposed in the snow. Condensation was as expected and froze to the inside of the bivy and outside of the sleeping bag one very cold night. The amount of condensation was less than you would experience in a tent unless you are breathing into the bivy. I was careful to make sure my breath made its way outside. It's easy to shake the frozen condensate out.
The bivy makes it easy to roll up your bag, pad, and bivy all in one for easy set up.
The bivy is fairly light, packs well,and is roomy. The zippers work very well. I believe it is well made and should last years. My only complaint is this bivy is advertised from the company website as having a bug screen, but this did not come with one.
UPDATE: I have used this in spring and fall and always wake up with a wet sleeping bag and inside of bivy soaked. Best to use just as ground tarp if you don't need additional protection from the elements.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was a good deal for the money Dec 2 2011
By corwin - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this as a good low-price entry into Bivy camping. Aqua-Quest makes primarily dry sacks. So in essence it's a dry sack in the shape of a bivy.

Pros:
1) It's roomy. My 0 degree bag AND inflatable pad fit inside without issue.
2) It's lightweight. At a little over a pound and a half it was a great alternative to a tent for ultralight backpacking.
3) I started packing it without the stuff-sack in my pack and putting everything inside it. Voila! No pack cover and all my gear stays dry, an excellent double purpose.
4) Setup after a long hike is lightning quick, but this is a trait of all pole-less bivys. Roll out the bivy, throw the bag inside while holding the two hoods together and shake out, then insert the pad inside between the bivy and bag back. Done! Crawl in and crash.

Cons:
1) It's not breathable. If you create condensation inside it, it stays inside it. I'd only use with a synthetic bag, a down bag might get soaked.
2) No bug mesh. Mine was obviously a 1st gen version. The current specs on Aqua-Quest's website detail a bug mesh on the face portal. I'll either have to sew some in or just sleep with a bug hood on like I have been.
3) (This is really minor) Stuff-sack is twice the size it needs to be. Fully compressed the bivy takes up about a third of the sack. Not a deal killer, just an observation.

I can't speak to long term durability as I've not had it out but a few times, but so far it's pretty nice. I've been using a ground cloth but I'm almost to the point where I might forego even that, although dirt is a problem.

Summary: Not best in class, but a solid first attempt. I'd recommend it to someone looking to bet into outdoor bivy camping on a budget.

2.0 out of 5 stars Condensation Anyone? March 17 2014
By Phil Huffy - Published on Amazon.com

Used in cool weather, when extra warmth is wanted. Both times, it was quite wet after use and had done little or nothing to
improve tempeature in tropical bag.
