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.
