I got this tent for Christmas and I was really excited to use it.

I slept out in it the night I got it in about 25 degree weather. I didn't do a good job setting it up in the dark; it was pretty difficult to do right. So if you get this tent, set it up in the daylight to know where all the little clips and whatsits are, the velcro, the swallow tail, whatever.

Make sure you fully zip everything up if you use the rain fly. The zippers keep the tent tight and without the interior being properly zipped shut, it will sag with the fly on.

I had a lot of condensation around the head in the morning, none around the feet. The condensation may have been prevented if I had the tent set better.

This is my first "bivy" and I thought it pretty sweet to use. It packs small, is light, and pretty awesome for what it is. Since it doesn't have poles, the whole thing packs into something smaller than a volleyball. The stuff sack is a water tight roll top bag, which is also awesome. The air beam is tight and spot on for its design. The bigger air beam 1P tent, the Mio, may be cooler for folks that want the extra room.

The vestibule space is pretty small, but big enough for shoes and a light pack.

I can't wait to take this tent out on a real trail over New Year's some time.
