SL3 Pole Connectors.
Don't know why the velcro and webbing won't work for you. I've used that system winter camping with a snow load and in very high winds with no problems.

Re: Re: Heavy Duty Bivy?

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
