Cabelas XPG Bivy is Big for Big Guys. This is my first bivy purchase and it is heavier than many of the bivy's I read about on BPL. However, 15oz for a 40"X90" bivy is pretty good. It breaths well and protects you from the elements. I use it in conjuction with a Cabelas XPG wing. One of my backpacking buddies has the REI Minimalist Bivy to use in conjunction with the tarp - and based on both bivy's I think the XPG is made much better. Besides there are not many Bivy's that can handle my shoulders and a Big Agnes Horse Thief bag. Dock it a point for weight - but other than that it is a great bivy for big guys. And Oh - It is a pretty good value - about $90.00. Hard to beat for the price as well.
