I've put it through the wringer

Will this make you look slightly ridiculous? Yes. Will everybody who passes you on trail be insanely jealous? Also yes. My husband and I brought these on the JMT in August of this year. It was a high snow year and the mosquitoes were swarming like clouds. I thought this headnet was a luxury item but honestly I think it might be necessary to maintain your sanity on trail. We wore this both hiking and just hanging out around camp. I did not get a single bite on my face, the rest of my body got destroyed by mosquito bites. This definitely works better with a wide brimmed hat. 10/10 would recommend!

Thank you for the review, Renee! Leta OR Rep

Does the Job

True to size

Bought this for a multi-day trip in the Sierras with high expectations for using it, but lucked out with cool enough weather to stave off the mosquitos. However, I tried it on and can say that it fits comfortably. It also packs easily, so it's not a hassle to bring along just in case.

This image displays the draw cord setup. A nice tight seal can be made around your neck. As long as you are wearing a turtle neck, sealing it around your neck seems to be a good idea and will protect your head and face from any biting creatures. Not too tight now..

No Fly Zone

Seems pretty insignificant out of the bag but it will pay dividends once bug season begins again.

OR goodness

Black fly infested territory, didnt get bit once (on the face or neck)... lots of bites on the legs tho :( really good piece of hardware if you're up north, or in a swamp, and folds down to almost nothing.

Psh... Black flies?

Great product, stands up to bushwhacking without tearing to shreds on branches and pickers. Still comfy even when draw string is tight on the neck, and most critically it keeps the black flies and skeeters out of my face! The big ol' black yooper bugs totally ignore the all mighty deet but they can't ignore this baby! Well worth the money!

There ain't not bugs on me

Definitely keeps the bugs out but sometimes the "deluxe spring" gets in the way of what I am trying to see. Works nice for sleeping with under a tarp to get bugs off your face and the headnet of your face.

Eat it mosquitoes!

Everyone should keep one of these in their packs. Its light weight, packs down super small, and keeps the bugs away. If you're reading this review, you must live in an area where the bugs get nasty so just buy it! The only flaw is it really tough to drink a beer when it's on....so you'll have to be brave and lift the net up to take a swig.

gnat free

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.
