Very Important Detail: I've only used the bivy once, I only have one experience thus far....
Las Vegas resident, overnight up Mt. Charleston on 1 Jan 2015. My alt. was 10,267 ft. weather was +30kt winds from the west with a wet bulb temp of 16 degrees. My camp set up was NF rock22 two person tent, REI 20 degree down sleeping bag, therm-a-rest Neo-Air sleep pad, Sea to Summit reactor bag liner, and Mt Hardwear Q Core bivy. For the first 5 hours of the night I was warm and toasty. Then I woke up cold, so I repositioned myself to ensure I was still correctly zipped up and I realized the wet layer between my sleeping bag and bivy. A couple hours later I woke up to feel the ice layer.
Here's what I can say that was positive...ultra-light weight, quickly dried in the morning, and spacious. I would recommend to others, and in the future I will try different variations to my sleep system to see how the condensation factor goes down.
I would recommend this product.
