Under the stars...

I spend 6 months a year sleeping under the stars. I don't like tents. I use to freeze in my sleeping bag in the spring and fall months. When I got the winter bivy sack, it added the extra 10-15 degrees I needed to stay warm without a tent. Just by blocking out most of the wind, that a tent would do. It is small and very light weight.

thank you! not everyone is a high altitude whiner who is overweight and then tries to save 4 oz and complains. alot of us ultralighters do it as a lifestyle, not a heroic adventure that whisks us off to exotic lands and world famous/feared peaks. this bag works fantastic as this reviewer said. just dont "buy" into lightweight. get creative. add some DIY and live less frustrated, and plenty comfortable. great review. thats what i got it for, use it for, and it performs fantastic.
