Nice Job Bill!
Is the drawcord only on the bottom end of the top and not on the cuben hood? If so, what is your strategy for keeping wind blown dirt, sand and bugs out? It must cinch up around your chest I guess,...

Rating 4/5 because the construction was under par. They use tape to form the bivy shape from a single piece of material. The tape job was sloppy with some holes in the bottom. Other than that a great ...
