I happened upon Yama Mountain Gear's bug tent 1.0. It was half a pound, and seemed simple enough to set up under my tarp. It was also a fair price and turned out to be my favorite piece of new gear on that hike. And yes, the bugs were large in Florida, but I began liking it for other reasons as well.
I found the bathtub floor helped tremendusly during downpours, and during really cold nights, it was just that much more between you and the freezing cold air.
So while beginning to search out another tarp option, I turned to Gen, [the owner of YMG] and asked about his Cirriform shelter. He gladly gave me a loaner for nothing more than feedback after the trip. But, after messing around with it and the bug tent, I already know this will be a great combo set up.
