Which momentum, that is carried here at the Thru-hiker is the best for a bivysack?  The ripstop or taffeta?

Thanks

None of the momentums are waterproof enough for use in a standalone bivy which requires a true waterproof-breathable fabric.

If you’re talking about a splash-type overbag, either one will work.  Typically rip stops are used for shells, while taffetas are used for liners.
