    Be interested to see how it goes. I used a setup like this when I did the Kokoda Track years ago, combined with a poncho/hootchie. Worked very well, despite the concerns of our guides. Should be pretty comfortable.
    If you MUST ground dwell, that's the way to go.

    How can I ever get lost when everyone is always telling me where to go?

    I had no probs with the insects not the weather. Combined with a hootchie/poncho, it was a good combination. My cuuent bivvy has a bug net and a loop so you can get it up off your face. It's a good bit of kit.

    I run the exact setup... except I use a blackwolf micro bag and I love it...
    I've not had any issues with bugs I just flip the top over and leave a opening for air to come in..
    I find the bivy does a great job of keeping the wind out and keeping warm air in...
    just don't fart inside..

    Nice choices, I love my klymit static v2. Seriously one of the most comfortable pads out there.
    Always in search of the best outdoor gear.

    I have same Bivvy bag with Fairydown sleeping bag totaling 2 kg. Ideal for backpacking, used it for years and love it.
    I dig a hip hole and use available brush if required.

    Nice setup, I use a very similar load out, with the same bivvy. One addition I suggest is a groundsheet, to protect the bivvy and air mattress from sharp objects. I cut out a section just long and wide enough to sleep on from a larger heavy duty tarp from a hardware store, works a treat :-)
