This is a horrible gear review. They did nothing but recite the materials the sacks were made out of. They listed no testing results such as what type of bag they used during the test the temps they tested it at. I seriously think all the did was open the package read the label then start filming. Poor show.
I'd like to see one with a full length zipper so you can load an injured person without aggravating the injuries.
I really dig these gear reviews and overall educational videos but sometimes I'm curious as to what the designers are thinking. I mean, you have a bivy sack (waterproof/breathable materials, taped seams, high ducat engineering) designed to keep your bag dry, essentially you as well, from moisture and rain, so why put a zipper on the top w/ no flap or anything to deter H2O? That just seems recockulous to me but it's just my 2 cents. All gravy.
