Sleeping bags

I am looking for a good low cost sleeping system. Due to some health issues I have gained some weight, so I am 6' 2" and 310 lbs. I know there are some military past and present on here. So my question is the military bivy systems are they large enough for a larger man or should I look elsewhere? I am wanting to do some camping/back packing I will not be able to do much cause I can't breathe, but I can't stand not getting out in the woods. There are some used ones for around $50 used like this. -- Military Modular Outdoor Sleep System w/ Sleeping Pad - GROUND SHIPPING ONLY!!

I just wonder if I am too large, any help would I would be grateful for.

Thanks Montana Rancher, I was afraid of that. Well I am used to cold weather, I used to work for the water dept here in my town. I used to hate those nights all snug in my bed it 20 degrees outside and have to go fix a water I really don't think I will need that much as far as warmth, just comfort I guess. May just get me a couple of wool blankets for the tent. I definitely have the fat back going I live in East Tn, that's about as far north as I feel comfortable living. I always thought Montana would be a nice place to live since we don't get near the snow here we used to.

I guess I will have to wait till I can get a back surgery behind me before I even think about it.
