I'm in the market for a bivy/sleeping bag cover. How does the MB Dry-Tec compare to the OR Micro Night?

Best Answer Responded on

The MontBell Dry-Tec is a sleeping bag cover & the OR MicroNight is a bivy shelter system which would give you much more protection from the elements.

The Montbell bivy is the lightest waterproof bivy on the market and it breathes as well as event and has very little condensation. I put it in the bathtub with 4 inches of water for several hours and my bag came out dry. I did seam seal it. In my opinion all bivys should be used with a tarp. I've used this bivy for several years and have nothing but praise for it. I did finally take it to my dry cleaner and I had them add a waterproof zipper.
