Pros: Light, easy to setup, fit and finish seems to be pretty nice.
Cons: Condensation builds up at the foot of this thing. I took this out on a night where there was a heavy dew by morning. I think because the foot of the bivy is vented, and the way the mini vestibule protrudes out from the foot to stake it properly, that it collected much of the dew into the foot of the tent. It didn't rain that night, but by the time it was morning, I had moisture just dripping from the inside of the tent at the foot. It got my bag and pad all wet. I slept with just the mesh zipped closed, and the fly door open. Temps got down to the low 50s. I also used the footprint with this. Pack weight with the 6 stakes, two poles, tent and ground cloth came it at 2.5 lbs! For another $150 there are some much better looking ultra light, 2 person options out there, that are only a couple ounces more and provide way more room to keep your pack and boots dry.
All in all, this is not the solution I was looking for. I have had a couple of North Face products go south on me lately, and I think I will avoid all of their products in the future.
