This little guy will fit into the palm of your hands providing you protection against the elements. Out of its tiny stuff sack comes alot of material: its frankly amazing. The nylon seems thin but strong as does the drytec laminate. I would still be careful with it like any piece of UL gear there has been a reduction in durability in order to save weight. The breeze dry seems to be working, I've slept outside a couple of times with minor condensation on the inside. Its quite comfortable with the top open how ever with it closed the night could be a long one due to breathability and there isn't much room to move around inside: the bivy moves with you which is nice because the air hole is always right in front but it can also be confining. I suggest bringing a small tarp to put over your head in order to avoid closing it up so tight and so water doesn't run into the top opening.
I would't suggest this in a super rainy environment unless you are just using it as a bag cover inside your tent. For occasional storms and moderate weather its perfect.
