It works alright

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I mean for emergency situations this would be the best thing you can get for about twenty dollars. I went tarp camping the other day and used it in mild rain. It kept my sleeping bag mostly dry. I put my sleeping pad inside it and used no ground cover to see how well it'd work. It worked, but not as good as an actually bivy meant to backpack in. It can get really sweaty in this thing in the rain, just so you know. Night temp was about 40, and I used an ultralamina 45 on the trip( i think). I had to unzip the bag to keep the temp right. Definately reflects some heat, is water proof, and wind proof. I will keep one in my day hike bag, just in case.
