I think I want more combinations.
For discreet wildcamping: Bivy bag and simply lay tarp over bike and panniers to reduce visual impact.
For wet, less discreet wildcamping: Bivy bag and tarp over head, cooking, bags and as much body as practical
For fancy campsites when I need a shower: Vango Banshee
For pauses of up to a week: Vango Banshee with tarp as porch
I found one idea for the midge protection which is to stitch a midge mesh "fringe" around a tarp so that it hangs down to the ground and provides a midge free area under the tarp. But sounds quite bulky and fiddly and ruins any view.
