buy this bag end of story
where this bag distinguisned its self is when my old bivy failed leaked like a sieve in 33 deg rain then the temp plunged latter on that evining the bag iced up some but very little and my body heat disipated most of the moisture at no time was the goose down compromised at no time was I uncomfortable i diddent evin know the bivy was leaking untill morning
this could have been a survival situation
its a thin line between a cool adventure and a real nightmare
ive loved this shelter , form the very first time i ever used it, I was at an out door goa l music festival drank form the wrong water bottle and wound up way out in the woods in more ways than one if you catch my drift its was sun rise and the rain was starting and in a bearly lucid state I got this thing pitched that was its maiden voyage since then ive pitched this thing everywhaere from overgrown lots in atlanta to mountians and snow fields all over the us its been bomb proof ive been in 80 mph winds
I like the fact that it really hides well
cant recomend this enough
my bora 80 has endured the impassable woods of westren nc . thickets so thick eric rudolph eluded the fedral govet for 5 years in them .
been out alot and in these times of economic uncertany I know that ill always have a home with my bora 80.
im still finding features with this pack that serve me well ive had to adapt to keep things organized by adding a compartmentd bag to my gear to keep small items accessable but the rig is flawless
I dont use 1/2 of the external strapping options but I imagine if I did id double the range of this thing relitively easily
I do wish arc teriyx offered some cylindrical bags for the sides but beyond that I cant see a whole lot o f room for improvement
