Other than that the mil issue bivy bag works great.
Not the fart sack, I meant the whack-shack...the one man tent. I guess y'all didn't get them issued? I used mine in conjunction with the sleep system in Colorado last November. Worked great.
Looking at the specs it is a little heavier than you wanted, but there are extras you can remove.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
