Hi, Is there a rain cover available for this bivy? If not, can you recommend one that would fit well?

This would be a great option for the tarp camper who wants the bug protection. You don't need a "rainfly" just go and get a lightweight sil nylon tarp. That will not only cover your mesh bivy but also give you a living space to cook and relax when the weather turns bad.

The Marmot Home Alone Bivy might be the "rainfly" option if you think weather issues will be consistently present. It comes in 9 ounces heavier than this one, but a tarp or rainfly might be similar in weight, and would then add an extra component, although you would have the flexibility to leave it off or at home if the forecast was good. The Home Alone Bivy is sold here at Backcountry.
