Outdoor Research's Molecule bivy features their own waterproof and breathable Ventia fabric - its tough but probably not as breathable as other fabrics.
Outdoor Research says:
One of the most tricked-out in our collection, the classic clam-shell Molecule Bivy sports and overlapping zipper for easy breathing, a durable, waterproof, anti-fungal-coated 70D floor, a vented foot box and a no-see-um net to keep the bugs out. Small, lightweight and weather ready, this is perfect for light solo missions.

Outdoor Research's Molecule Bivy is a tough general purpose bivy made from their own Ventia fabric with a 70D weave - that's more than double the thickness of the materials they make their other bivys out of. We think that will compromise breathability, even with the foot venting, so while the Molecule will be tough and long lasting there will be more condensation than other alternatives.
If you don't mind a bit of condensation then this could be a good choice as its certainly waterproof. the price is low and it has some key features, such as the mesh panel option for keeping the bugs at bay.
