I have been smiling. Appears the forum has figured out you have no actual knowledge about gear, and from your latest Seymour post, you have minimal safe backcountry travel skills.
You make mistakes, then attempt to argue absurdum your way to victory. Time to try out the ignore feature.

I love my bivi and find that setting up a 5x8' tarp as an A-Frame over my head isn't too difficult. The tarp is pretty storm-worthy for rain, then the non-food gear goes under the tarp. I wish I had some pictures of this set up but the last time I tried to find one, no dice.

The claustrophobia goes away when it's really cold out I've used it in cold weather (-18 degrees) twice but prefer to use a tent if snow is in the forecast because I think the breathability of the bivi would be compromised.
