Does anyone know of a bivi bag which has a zip closed insect mesh over the opening?

Mine. I think it’s a Mountain Range from the 90’s. Good bag double hooped if needed.

Snugpak Stratosphere, but it's a heavy one for being a bivy bag. 

I changed my mind thinking I can live with such living space. A week in it was far too much!

You can read some reviews here, the Terra Nova Jupiter expensive but very good.

Black Diamond Twilight 

MSR AC bivy

MSR is quite a bit larger than most bivi's..

Many thanks all. That's given me quite few to look at.

Trying to get in a bivi bag and zipping the mesh closed before the midges join you is another matter.

Needs air moving over that bag to prevent condensation
