I had a moment of claustrophobia once. I was zipped up inside a EMS 0(25)
degree bag inside a EMS 40(65) degree bag inside a zipped up bivy bag. Four
zippers and four drawstrings to keep track of. Once I told myself I could
sort out those zippers and drawstrings, I slept well. Outside my tent that
night, it got down to 12 degrees below zero.
# = their rateing, (#) = my rateing.
