About mosquito hats and head nets
Mosquito head nets, on the other hand, are stand-alone sheets of netting that need to be fitted to a separately purchased hat. They work the same way as the mosquito netting that’s attached to mosquito hats: a finely woven, mesh style fabric containing tiny little holes that allow air and visible light to penetrate it, but are too small for bugs to get through, covers the face, arms, and neck of the user and thus protect them from mosquitoes and other airborne insects.
Benefits of mosquito hats and head nets
The major benefit of mosquito hats and head nets is that they offer an alternative, non-chemical means of repelling unwanted and dangerous insects when you are out enjoying the Great Outdoors. Spare yourself the mess of greasy, sticky, smelly mosquito repellents and sun lotions – as well as the health risks of the potentially toxic compounds contained within these substances – by wearing a mosquito hat or head net instead!
Not only are they healthier, but they also offer more comfort and convenience for the user as well, with no need to re-apply lotions and sprays every few hours.
These products are made from materials that are easy to clean and will survive multiple washes – as well as the elements of nature. Because of this, they are probably a more cost-effective option than conventional insect repellents as well – since the latter have to be replaced at periodic intervals.
Things to consider when buying a mosquito hat or head net
Size is another important feature of mosquito hats and head nets. Many of these products are advertised as ‘one size fits all’, however when choosing between hats and head nets you should always take a look at the dimensions and measurements specified on the product labeling. This way you will know for certain whether your mosquito hat or head net will fit your head.
Next, you should consider what materials your hat or head net is made from. Most are designed from 100 percent polyester or nylon, quality materials that will stand up to the elements of nature over the long haul, are lightweight, easy to clean, and offer good air circulation and comfort for the user.
Visibility is another important quality to look for in mosquito head nets – even if your head net forms an impenetrable barrier between yourself and even the smallest of bugs, this won’t be much use if you can’t properly see through it when enjoying your outdoor activities.
Always check the product specifications of your head net or mosquito hat of choice to see whether it promises good visibility when wearing it.
Finally, make sure to take a look at any warranties, product guarantees and other additional features that are included with your product. For example, some mosquito hats and head nets come with their own – free – storage bag or sack, which enables you to protect and easily carry your device around with you wherever you go.
