Bivy Sacks? For, Against or "They have their time and place."

I was fortunate enough to be given a Sierra Design Clip Light 2 man backpacking tent by a friend when I first got into backpacking. Unfortunately I have been having a hard time finding a footprint for it. I currently am carrying a pack upwards of 40 lbs. and want to cut weight as my backpacking adventures become longer and more intense. I was hoping to gain a little insight as to the groups general opinion of bivy sacks. Love them or leave them? How do you feel about the use of bivy sacks? Got one in particular you recommend? 4 season? Lightest?

So, how do you feel about the new view?

Recently Meetup has introduced a new 'view' for the site. There's been a lot of controversy about how good the changes are so I thought I would poll our members. Right now the new 'view' is optional but we'll be forced into it in a few weeks. I'll be leaving this 'view' up for two days before switching back. Please answer the poll before then. Feel free to leave any feedback at the main Meetup forum, at the blog (check for 'discuss Meetup and Meetup HQ Blog at the bottom of the page) or at the message board thread I've opened. The more feedback the better. Thanks, -Miles
