I've used this Bivy 3 times now under hot, cool and cold conditions, each time in a MH ultralamina sleeping bag. I love the bag but the bivy got me, the sleeping bag and the inside of the bivy completely soaked from condensation in all conditions. It rained the last time I used it and it was so wet that I thought the bivy might have leaked. I tested it once I got home with a hose and the inside stayed dry. I have to conclude that the bivy just does not breath. I'll keep it to use in a deluge if I am caught out in one, but won't use it to keep the dew off as I had hoped I could.
I do not recommend this product.
