Just had a chance to take this out on an extended backpacking trip in WV, MD, and PA during a hot and humid week. I used the bivy in two ways; set up with a ridgeline and set up in a shelter with the face netting rigged to stay off the face. During the whole week I had no problems with condensation on the inside even though the humidity levels were high. My pad slid around on a quick overnight I took previously, so I purchased a piece of EVA foam (1x2) to place under it and that definitely helped. I purchased the 6' wide size and that allowed plenty of room along the sides and at 5' 10", about 10" or so of room at the head for anything I wanted to keep inside. It didn't rain during my trip, so I didn't get the chance to test the splash protection. I received plenty of questions at different spots, most being jealous of the weight savings over a tent after I told them what the bivy weighs. It was also consoling to know no creepy crawlies were getting in while sleeping on the ground or in the shelters. I saw some large wolf spiders that I certainly didn't want crawling on my face. The extra large mesh was nice when the humidity and temperature were high. It let some air flow through. That and not having to worry about insects allowed me to sleep shirtless and stay relatively comfortable. All in all, the Pinon Bivy is the perfect shelter for my needs; light, protective, comfortable, and quick and easy to set up. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and it seems it's well built and will last the test of time.
Excellent light weight option. I ordered a longer Bivy than I need so I can stand my pack up in the extra head room to create enough height to keep the mesh off my face without staking up trekking poles. Wake up and roll up Bivy,pad and bag together and be moving in just a couple minutes.
I love my new Pinon Bivy. I got the 6'-6'' size in regular width. I am 6'-1'' tall and weigh 170#. It is plenty roomy for me, and all of my gear. I do need to pack 6 stakes along with my hiking poles to get a really good pitch. It is great to be away from the bugs. Good product with good delivery time at a fair price.
Just took it out on a 4 day backpacking trip and it worked perfect. Shaved some weight and space in my bag. It’ll be perfect for archery elk hunting this September
I have only been able to try it out in my back yard a couple times. I really like it.
I had an outing planned but my wife fell and broke her Pelvis two weeks after I got it so it will be quite awhile until I can get out now.
