It's true. Once a shelter get's to small there's a lot of surplus room inside. But there is a little, and you can supplement by putting your gear in a large dry bag just outside the zipper w/in arms reach. I have one like this, but a large garbage bag would suffice.
When packing light I have two different bivy bags that I use depending on weather and w/the dry bag combo I do OK. It's a compromise.
I'm not say'n this is the most comfortable way to bivouac, I'm just say'n that it's not as bad as some would think.
I have a UL one person tent close to the size of that LL Bean above. The rain fly usually creates two small vestibules on each side.
