The Bothy is part of the mandatory gear list for the Grand Traverse. We didn't need to bivvy but I did carry it around for a long while. Lightweight, not the smallest bivvy but for the price it is a great deal. It packs into itself. If I find myself carrying this during future trips I may get a stuff sack to compress it.

Ordering was easy and it arrived quickly. I still haven't used the Bothy but I did it out of the bag. Its not big, but suitable for emergency situations. 2 people could sit in it and stay warm/dry. Its light weight and will be good to carry for emergency bivys.

Quick Delivery, and as advertised. I'll take the Bothy 2 while daytime hiking in local hills & mountains to operate a portable ham radio station - a program called Summits on the Air (SOTA for short). Even on a good day, changeable weather can mean a cancellation or a couple miserable hours of radio operation at best, so a shelter can make all the difference. A small tent would be impractical for this purpose - just too heavy & bulky. In contrast, the Bothy Bag 2 is light, and smaller than a football once shoved back into its own air vent (which cleverly becomes a stuff sack). It can then be compressed even smaller to fit into the pack, or just tie it on the outside. I quickly learned that the "two-man" description actually means two very close friends, but it is certainly large enough for two in an emergency. For the SOTA hiker, there is plenty of room for one man to sit inside (with legs either crossed or extended), set a pack upright at the other end, and still have enough space in-between to operate a small radio transceiver.

Well made, smart, shelter that I use on day hikes; lightweight and compact. I did a lot of research before buying this--including watching the many videos of it on youtube-- and I'm glad that I have it because I simply hang it off of my back pack and I don't worry any longer about inclement weather.
