Many of the woodsy areas around Chicago are restored wetlands which serve as a breeding and feeding habitat for wildlife, including mosquitos. During a four-hour hike I was not bitten once while wearing the head net. Combined with permethrin treated clothes it was a perfect system to thwart massive swarms of mosquitos.
The head net fits over my full-brimmed Tilley hat and the elastic arm loops hold it in place. It fits in a pocket and the light weight makes it a no-brainer to carry on every hike.
The trails begin to empty every summer as the bugs take over the woods. This head-net allowed me to walk in solitude while near the city.
It allowed me to keep Deet off my face on a hot, sweaty summer day.
