I've been testing the 2 and 4 person Bothy during winter hikes in the New Hampshire White Mountains with temps ranging from -6° to 25°. Definitely gets warm inside and helps shield from the wind. Very fast and easy to set up. Great for lunch breaks or to shield you from the weather. Only gripe would be with the windows. After hiking a few hours in single digit weather they were very hard and remained in their packed shape. Still a great product though and could save somebody's life with minimum pack weight.
Quality material and design. However, the designers must be the same ones that work for the tent manufacturers. There is no way we could get a 4th person in this "4" person bag. Same old story: 4- person tent may hold 3 and a 3-person tent may hold 2.
