Ooutdoor Research Micro Night Bivy (Micronight)

Has anyone used the Outdoor Research Micronight bivy? Any issues with condensation? Does it have a bathtub floor as it appears in OR's photos,or is the darker gray colored band around the edge also Pertex? Thanks.

I have used it a couple times with different results. Once with a fair amount of condensation build up and the other times with very minimal amount. I am waiting to use it in a couple of weeks with warmer spring time weather. The time I had significant condensation the temperature and dew point were basically the same. Everything had severe condensation. The bottom is a bathtub floor made of the heavy gray material and the top is pertex endurance. So far I would say it is worth the money. However, it can't compete with MLD and the momentum fabric tops.
