    No big deal. We are here mon-fri 9-5 but I'll stick around later if need be. Just let me know we have plenty in stock.

    Did you have any condensation issues? That was one of my big concerns when I was going to go the bivy route. I like the look of this bivy. The way it gets off you face with the pole, etc. is great.

I think in the fall and spring when the chance of foul weather is higher I will take a actual 1 man tent so I can have a vestibule and some room to move around in. Attached is some photos of it in action.

    With the eVent fabric I had no condensation issues. eVent breathes 3 times better than gore-tex so that allows for perspiration and such to escape. I was really pleased with it and look forward to using it alot more this summer.

    It is hard to imagine going the bivy route with such great ultralight tents these days such as the UL series. Almost the same weight as the bivy (within a few ounces) with so much more versatility.

    True bivy sacks are nice when you are in country where you have a hard time finding the space for a tent (even a small one) or places to set a stake, or places to tie a guy line.

    I still use my tarptent contrail more than my bivy, though.

    llp,

    For sure I hear ya. Believe you me that thought has crossed my head, especially in foul weather a bivy is no fun. I am still planning on getting a copper spur 1 or fly creek 1. I am gonna try the 3 wire for a couple more trips to get a real opinion on it then make up my mind. So far so good though, I really enjoy it.
