Emergency Hooch Only
I tried a few different bivy sacks before settling on this one; I am 6' 3" and not a skinny man so my big issue with bivys in general is getting in and out of them without cramping up or destroying the sack. This sack is large enough to be "comfortable" (a loose term when discussing bivy sacks) in a good sleeping bag, and the wire works fairly well in creating some head space to alleviate the claustrophobia. Despite the factory seam taping I went ahead and sealed all outer seams with McNett SeamGrip, would recommend this for any serious wet-weather scenarios. Very light and packable, all around good piece of gear but I'm still a tent guy...
