The product is a great, reliable Bivvi I’ve used for years this is my third. I would like to point out how amazing the customer service is at mad city outdoor.
I will absolutely return to this company for future purchases.
I absolutely recommend mad city outdoor for any of your future purchases. Thank you again to the team lake & Amy.
First off, I know these folks have been getting alot of flak for extended delivery times, IT IS NOT THEIR FAULT ! They receive directly from the manufacturer, who is behind on production ! These folks stayed in touch with me every step and were absolutely AWESOME ! A++ CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!! Oh, and the Snugpak SF Bivy bag is pretty cool too, compacts down nicely for minimalist backpacking .
Great material it's not crinkly like a trash bag and packs down into its stuff sack well. I just used it on a 30 degree trip with no problems.
