The net is easy to pack compact, light, folds out and back very easily; nylon cover does not snag on other pack items. Started fishing early on a windless southern beach, and was attacked by a horde of winged teeth (gnats), but fished distraction free.
They cannot crawl through the net, which is comfortable. However it does somewhat compromise vision which was not a problem as I was standing in one spot. The gnat attack would have been much more distracting, and it is better than smelly sprays.

The TacTikka Plus is a light-weight light to see what is at hand or foot. The red light is great; preserves night-vision and since it is attached as a sliding shade; it cannot be lost. I have used it regularly to see my way about 1/2 mile hike to fish early in the morning and to bike home at night.
Battery life is good. The entire apparatus is fairly comfortable.
The downside is the housing falls open when you push the light button, so I had to put tape over the opening area to keep it shut and to prevent the batteries from falling out.
The second one I bought to keep as an emergency light in another place did the same thing.

Light, stretchy, very breathable fabric, not cut as trim as my softshell jacket by this company, so there is plenty of room to move and wear a light undershirt. I have used it to kayak, fish and run outside in moderate 50 degree breezy weather. It can be cold as it does not have a brushed lining other than the collar, nor is it windblocking, if you are not moving or layer it. Held up well in laundering, and tough fabric won't 'pick' when rubbed by heavy gear.
The fit is good for a small female by itself or with a light undershirt. I like the arm sleeve pocket for my keys.
Also, it is not too 'techy' or logo emblazoned to wear in the grocery store on the way in from the beach. My pet peeve, I don't like being used as a sign board for a clothing company, even a very good one. Due to not having a brushed interior lining and being noisey, I'll give a 4/5. The plus to not having a brushed interior means that the fabric is non-bunching over a lighter underlayer.

Very nice, lined, soft windbreaker.
There are no pit zips as in the description. This will be too hot to run in once warmed up. I returned it as I have already a lined windbreaker.
The Marmot evolution next to skin gore top is much more breathable and comfortable for running in 40-50 degrees with a stiff north breeze on the beach. It is very simple: no pit zips and no pockets. Held up well in the wash so far, including shedding some dirt from moving my bike out of the truck. The down side is for the price they could have at least they could have sewed on a key pocket.
