Does this bivy need a footprint? And, how is it for condensation?

Responded on

It doesn't necessarily need a footprint, but I would use one. As far as condensation goes... it's not the best. I was far more impressed by my friend's OR bivy.

I was thinking the same. I don't know how you guys do the bivys! I went with the golite shangri-la 1. Has a vestibule, more room, no worries of condensation, and it's only a few ounces heavier. Although, you can't beat the pack size of this bivy!

I would definitely use a footprint - helped me with condensation + plus it adds an extra level of protection and longevity to the bivy... Plus you can always use the footprint for other stuff like changing, food, etc...
