I picked up a Bivy Bag last spring, with the same plan in mind. It is an Integral Designs Unishelter and is a step above the normal bivy sack, with a roof line single pole. Sure packs small and with the curved pole, packs next to the center stuff sack.
I have yet to camp in it, but it has been on the last couple of rides to see how it fits into my Coyote load-out. This is a web pic, mine is red and covered in seam sealer.

The flannel sleeper is a cool concept, kinda old-school cowboy style. I have heard of guys using quilts and a tarp instead of a sleeping bag and tent.

my bag and this bivy fit into the top kidney bag, everything else doesnt fill the two side bags, you can see in the pic even though i packed some extra clothes the sides at the compression straps are totally empty

for summer i made a sleeping bag out of flannel sheets, i can do overniters comfy with nothing more than a kreiga r15.

go light go fast was kinda my motto before you clowns stole it
