“Not a fashion item but very well made” “I like it better than midge bites” – Heather Swanson “The hood fits well over your head and reaches far enough down your neck the little biters can’t get in. The mesh is fine but doesn’t impinge vision too much.” “Keeps the midgies off your face, light and easy to wear” The holes in this are very small to keep all insects out. I’m not fond of the green colour but I’m more not fond of insects flying into my mouth.” “Fantastic idea to have the visor!” “It doesn’t cost a lot, it works, & it’s super light. Might take a couple seconds to get used to seeing out of the fine netting, but I find it manageable.” This headnet is much better worn over a wide brim hat. You might look daft but watching everyone else flinch and squeal while the midges eat them alive soon cheers you up.”
“Amazing visability” “Not the best for visability – but one of the best at stopping midge bites” “Compact and lightweight” “Good visability, showerproof and comfortable.” “Loose fitting, keeps midges out” “The best visibility you can have from a head net and made by our own hand!” “The elastic is tight to the neck to stop midges getting in, just make sure you’re not claustrophobic”

“As compact as can be”
