Used the bag on an overnight temp dipping to -4 deg F. Setup was easy and the venting proved to be very useful with multi choices for amount of venting. Still moisture inside due to condensation was an issue. Isolated to head of bag only though. Bag has ample room to store boots and clothing inside which is nice.


  • Size of bag and weight very light for amount of space


  • Moisture from condensation
  • Pole hard to get in

Overall I used this bag in an extreme condition. I was mostly dry except around the head and given temp had I opened sac to allow breath to escape bag probably stayed dry totally. I was surprised at room able to keep boots gloves etc in the bag with still plenty of space to move around.

This was primarily bought for winter but will be using throughout the season due to weight and durability. Like all Sierra Designs products very well constructed.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Zagori Bivy is Sierra Designs' flagship one-man / woman overnight shelter, with welded seams, DriZone waterproofing, and stake-out options for heavy weather. The Zagori's generous footprint accommodates oversized or sub-zero sleeping bags, while the wire-supported head space features both no-see-um netting and a storm-flapped zip closure for rainy nights. Stake-out loops let you nail the Zagori down in hurricane season, and seam welding increases durability while reducing weight for lightning ascents.
