      For those with down sleeping bags, how can we determine in the evening whether condensation will be significant enough overnight to get the outside of the bag more than a little wet? I like the idea of camping outside my tent in good weather but this issue has been in the back of my mind. I've always used a tent and find it difficult to predict when condensation will be on the tent in the morning.

I generally have the pad inside the bivy already making it really quick and easy to get in. I typically have either a small tarp or poncho ready to pull over the mesh of the bivy if needed.
