I'm considering getting the BPL Vapr Bivy Sack and wanted some feedback on this product and sizing. I would use it to sleep under the stars and minimize moisture on my sleeping bag from condensation. If it rains I'd retire to my shelter (Tarptent). I am 5'9.5" (69.5"), 150lbs and have a Mountain Hardware Phantom 32 bag with 4" of loft. The short bivy's length is listed as 73". Is this sufficient room for me and my bag? My bag has a left-side zipper, so not sure how well this bivy will work since it unzips across the top and angles toward the right side. The large bivy is 81" which is plenty of room, probably too much. If you are a current or past owner of this bivy, I'd be curious what your experience with it is. Thanks. Dick

A 5'-9" person should go with the size regular bivy.
