Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The description for this pack indicates it may function as a Summit pack capable of carrying a rope and other gear for a day climb. I found the pack to be too flimsy for that. Climbing gear is heavy. For a pack suited to climbing I think there needs to be a bit more structure/support so that load carries reasonably well and doesn't move around on your back. This pack seemed more suited to carrying less than 10lbs which fits more in the day pack for hiking not climbing.

For the 2+lb weight this bivy weighs and for the same price you could get the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1 Tent. A bivy should be lighter than a tent not the same weight. I will give them props for using a great material (eVent) and have no doubt this shelter will protect you from the elements well and it has a low profile for good high wind performance.

The purpose of this jacket is to provide mid layer warmth under a shell in Winter or in my case to provide highly breathable outerwear in the summer evenings in the Alpine. I traded in my Nano Puff for the R2 because frankly the Nano Puff doesn't breath and I would quickly get sweaty/clammy if I was in cool temps (i.e., 50's to low 60's). The R2 is more versatile. In cool temps I can have it as an outer layer, knowing that any significant heat build up will easily escape before I sweat, in colder weather I can throw on a wind shirt/shell over it to block any wind.
