confusion about floor fabric for BPL bivy on 10/28/2010 12:32:39 MDT Print View

Sam, can you clarify this for me. In the description paragraph, it reads..."A highly water-resistant bathtub floor keeps water out while the highly-breathable top-fabric lets perspiration breathe out of and away from your sleep system."

But in Ryan's description squib/review on the page it's described that "The use of a breathable, but still ultralight AND waterproof floor fabric, makes this bivy virtually condensation free."

Also, again in the bullet points following, it says: Waterproof-Breathable floor fabric

So which is it? highly water resistent or waterproof/breathable?

Also, is the floor material eVent?

Bivy zipper length on 10/28/2010 13:11:36 MDT Print View

Sam, how long is the zipper? I'm wondering how easy it is to get in/out of the bivy.

Does anyone know what the dimensions are through the chest/shoulders. I would like to support BPL, but the lack of info is frustrating.

Thanks Jim

The bottom is wp/b but not eVent. My guess is Pertex Endurance.

Honestly, I don't know of any fabric that is both 100% waterproof and breathable. There are plenty (eVent, sil, spinnaker, etc.) that are functionally waterproof for our purposes though.

Sam or a buyer will have to measure the shoulder width as I don't have one accessible to me.

Hello all

So here I am waiting for answers to two simple questions. Width of new product and will BPL keep up their promise. Free ground shipping for prepurchases to Mlife members?

If a month ahead is not a prepurchase? What is? Who is responsible for product info? Do you not have an example of your own product to measure?

I wanted to order one of these today. Now time is running out. Mlife was a way to support BPL and I will not second guess my decision to subscribe. However someone is droping the ball on this one.

Thanks Jim
