Great to have in a pinch

This is a great item to have in a pinch. It provides reasonable protection against moisture, bugs, and adds a couple extra degrees of warmth. However, I wouldn't rely on this to handle seriously adverse weather conditions. It's no substitute for a tent or a gore-tex bivy. It is light, and packs down incredibly small, so it's a nice back up for pretty much any backcountry situation.
