I have a Zolo 1 man bivi from Dolite.
It is ok but you need to carry a fly as well as it is only big enough for a body, and no porch. Condensation is a hassle at times, as it is will sealed. Quick to put up and I get a cosy sleep but do wish I had brought a slightly bigger version.

Ive got one of these, on special this week $90 flat.  Great little tent, lightweight, can use without the fly, enough room on the 'porch' for ya pack!  Plenty big enough for you and ya rifle!  It breathes well, with no condensation, and no leaks in the rain, won't break the bank either!  Win win win!!!!

Depends if your a big name tenter I guess!

Price and weight compromise, it rather carry another kiloish compared to a MSR! And for a tenth of the price.

Very happy with it
