    The claustrophobia factor is the reason I've never really considered getting one. The idea of sleeping in a potato sack inside a sleeping bag just didn't sound appealing. I did, however, score a...

    I had the same concern about my Ursack, but agree that it really doesn't get as wet as you'd think. It gets wet, but not soaked.
