Review

Hiking after the snow melt, in warm climates and in the tropics, you’re going to need as much protection from the blood-sucking nasties as you can get. So, why the smidge head net?

 

Why the Smidge head net?

It’s incredibly light and has a very fine mesh, keeping even the smallest flies and mosquitos out. It covers your head and shoulders and fits into the tiny draw-string pouch included. I used this on my hikes including the Welsh 3,000s in high midge season and it worked brilliantly.

 

Value for money

For just £4.50 and this level of protection at such a low weight, you can’t go wrong.
