Has anyone tried this pad in a bivy setup? I use a Mountain Hardware Bivy everywhere I go with a North Face bag and a Therm-a-resy prolite as my setup/ I'm looking for more loft and heat as a side sleeper. I'm 6'6" so cirious if this would fit inside my bivy and if it would be a durable option as I rarely ever sleep on good ground. Thanks - Montana-bowhunter!

This sleeping pad does have more girth than a Prolite,1.5 more inches more. It does have a tapered design that would help fit inside a bivy, although I cannot answer this accurately without knowing which model of MH bivy. The NeoAir is a little more "fragile" than the Prolite. It may not be the best option for not sleeping on "good ground". You may want to look at a combo of your Prolite with a Thermarest Ridge-Rest Solar Sleep Pad or a Ridge-Rest SOLite. The closed foam pad will insulate you well and is more durable than an inflatable pad.
