Not the same tent but my daughter has the beta light (older 2 color design) and beta bug. She is happy with everything but the weight. That bug shelter is built with really heavy duty bathtub floor and netting. I believe the Mega Bug is similar (well over 3 lbs). Hopefully somebody that owns one will chime in.

I have one and the bug net and floor wiegh more and pack larger than the Megalight itself. I got mine a while back hoping that I could use it to go backpacking with my wife. But that didn't work out. I use the Megalight for spring skiing trips where bugs are a non-issue. So make me an offer.
