100km wide gusts throughout the entire night on the westcoast last week.  The wind was accompanied by torrential rain.  The bivvy was pegged down and withstood the entire lot.  It needs re-sealing but has coped with a lot of wet weather and wind over the years.  Just make sure your sleeping bag is inside a good water tight bivvy bag.
Cheers

Absolutely!!! We only have the bivvy tent (without floor) so our sleeping bags are ALWAYS inside a goretex bivvy bag.  Our sleeping bags have survived torrential rain and being fully submerged in a river.  All you need is a good bivvy bag.  Your life could depend on it. Smiley

Been caught only once when she started to weep....heaviest rain had ever been in though. Mainlt where there was contact between the fabric
Got a higher rain head one recently. Silicon backed one.
Poncho base helps and a plastic bag for sleeping bag as alternative to bivy bag...need a good plastic bag for meat.
My cram bags water proof.
Also have bivy bag with a mossy net in it. But don't like it much. Prefer one with a pole or two.
