I will have Mosquitos all around. I realize the head area isnt very tall with the poll but what keeps the foot side up off you. I'm not using a sleeping bag being in tropical weather, just need a bug shelter for sleeping but can't have the net touching me at all. How does the lower foot side stay up a little?

Foot area without a bag collapses - you may want to think about going the route of the hammock with a bug net - this way you are off the ground with extra air flow to prevent moisture build up.

you can use a trekking pole, or guy it out to a tree. There's a web loop at the top rear of the bivy which allows you to use any kind of pole-like support, or a guy rope to keep the foot top up off you.
