is there a good way to reinforce the bottom so that it won't wear out after one season? there are an awful lot of thorny plants where I camp typically, and I would hate to lose this PERFECT bivy in a war with a spiny bugger.

At 5 ounces, the below ground cloth is very versatile protection plus it doubles as a canopy. If you don't want to carry the additional weight, you'll unfortunately have to deal with the ground as it is plus any type of reinforcement would only add extra weight.

Know this was question a while back but maybe this will help others. Honestly I do not have a mesh bivy I have the "Home Alone bivy" it has the same bottom. You will not have to worry about it one bit. It is awesome. I was in the Gila and been back country camping in the Southwest and no problems what so ever.
