What to do for a nest?

I feel very lucky that I found a used Kifaru 4-man that I'm going to be trying for the first time this year, but would like some sleeping options. When packing in with a partner we may just take our bivy sacks if need be, but I'm looking for a nest to use when I'm in Minnesota in the summer. The Tipi has the mosquito net option already, but I'm looking for a little extra protection particularly if I go to the BWCA or camping close to the truck when weight is not as much of an issue. I would like something a little less confining than the bivy. I've been looking at Seek Outside and also Bearpaw. Does anyone have experience or recommendations regarding either of these nests or others similar?

I have a bearpaw nest for my SL-5. It's well made. Mine was ordered with the higher sides on the floor to help with wet conditions.

I have been looking at these quite a bit & kind of like all the options. I just have to decide which will work best in a tipi. It looks like if you get one with the higher sylnylon sides you would have the benefits of a double wall tent & tipi with a stove in one package.

I think the Moffats have had success with the bearpaw as well. That's the route I'm going to go with my SL 5 should I ever want some more freedom to move around than my bivy.
