Weight: While a little heavier than other bivys, the reliability of an Army Issue piece of equipment more than make up for the extra weight. All together I didn't really feel that it added a noticeable increase in weight.
Packed Space: While lager than other bivys, this was still smaller than most compressible sleeping bags, and fit inside a med sized stuff sack from Walmart.
Interior Space: While this will be more cramped than a tent, There was more than wide enough for my Klymit Static V sleeping pad inside the bivy. This was great as I did not have to worry about rolling off my pad in the middle of the night. I also had my 5 degree bag inside. It was long enough to fit my 6'1" body with room for a small camping pillow. There is no support for the cover so it will touch your face. Usually I can prop it up until I fall asleep, but all in all, its the same issue that you will have with any bivy. Regardless, the fabric was breathable and did not feel restricted in breathing, even when the product was touching my face.
Waterproof: GoreTex is great, I got rain on one night and with the cover over my face, I was completely dry.
Condensation: Temps on my trip dropped to below freezing and often that will create condensation. The GoreTex is very effective at allowing condensation out and with out loosing its waterproofing. It worked great.
Temp: Expect that this will add about 5-10 degrees of temp to your sleeping kit. With freezing temps, I was comfortable with a 5 degree bag and the bivy. In the summer, I have notices that it can become uncomfortable if it is warm and the cover is closed, but usually I just skip the sleeping bag and sleep with just the bivy. Which has worked great.
Durable: This has been up and down the Grand Canyon, In the mountains and several other locations. I am extremely pleased in how it has held up. Most sleep systems would be showing wear, but this still looks new (With the exception that its covered in trail dust.
New: Exactly as described, this was new and in the original Army plastic packing with the comply label slapped on it. Very happy that it was new as described as it touches your face all night when the cover is closed.
Overall: One of the best purchase I have made in a while for my outdoor adventures. It does weigh more but is worth the weight. In particular when you consider the overall cost.
I got what I paid for and I'm good with that...
Bags are a little too small to keep my Sea-to-Summit 1.2 lbs Trek down bag lofted which did cause some cold spots when I used these on a HST trek this past August. Temps dropped down into the mid-30's and if not for the down vest it would have been a tad uncomfortable. Since the sleeping bag was compressed, the usual gain of 3 -5 degrees of additional warmth one might get from these covers was completely negated.
Toughed it out on the trip (5 days) and finally just used the bivy cover as an extra ground cloth and I actually stayed a bit warmer as the bag was able to loft better. By the time we got out of the high country, I was glad to not have to spend another night with this combination.
My bag may have been a tad light, but that was the plan... TRAVEL LIGHT! I've used the Trek bag before in a tent situation in the same temperature ranges and not had the cold spots develop. Oh well
I think for quick bivy overnights in mid-40's and above, this would probably work well with most bags but be aware of the compression factor of your bag before you head out!
