One of the things I really like about the MLD Bug Bivy is the zipper location. It's lengthwise above you (i.e., Top Entry). It allows you the freedom to simply unzip a short section and sit straight up when you need (i.e., putting on cloths etc..) Getting in and out is not as awkward as it might seem as long as you are using the shock cord it comes with so it flexs as you get in/out.

I just weighed this net again:

The duo is advertised at 4.85oz. It weighs 5.6 oz my scale including the aluminum pole and stuff sack.

After some thinking I am inclined to just pick up an MLD Solomid Innernet to use with my Duomid. A little heavier and pricey, but probably essential for seriously buggy conditions. TiGoat bivy is another option that I already have.
