Comments about Slumberjack Slumberjack Taku Welded Bivy:

This bivy increased the warmth rating of my sleeping bag, but the sheet of ice that formed all around me from my breath condensation was a little uncomfortable. This bivy would make a great emergency shelter. It may have been the fact it was 5 below and the condensation didn't have a chance to escape before freezing. I may use it in warmer weather and see how it works for that.

Comments about Slumberjack Slumberjack Taku Welded Bivy:

Spent the night in this bivy under a tarp tent in 0° with windchill around -20°. The support rod did an average job of keeping the material off my face for the night, but when I woke up in the morning I was covered head to toe in ice, and the top material was completey frozen. This bivy may breath, but not fast enough for the condensation from my breathing to get out before it froze. Would recommend this product for above freezing condition only. However, it did add good insulation to my sleeping bag. I never felt chilled while laying in a layer of ice.
