I am new in the forum, I read a lot in the last few weeks, and this is my first post, since I did not find exactly what I am looking for. I am looking for advise.
I am going to buy my first bivy sack. I am buying it now for a upcoming backpacking trip in the Cordilleras Blanca in September but in the future I will mainly use it in the Alps (year round).
I drill down the options to ID South Col (in eVent) or BD Hooped Bivy (in Toddtex), both fully waterproof, good breathability and a pricetag < 200. Reading the forum I understood the eVent fabric is probably the best bet for a bivy, but on internet I read really good reviews on the Toddtex. The BD is a little more heavy, not much, but it has an easier entrance and it is 30 bucks cheaper...
What do you think? Any suggestion? Anybody had experiences with both of them to compare pros and cons?
