Comments about Bug Helios:

I have used this hat in the northern forests of Canada where there are enough bugs to carry you away. I have used plenty of other bug nets, which generally work fine, but having the convenience of a net attached to the hat is very nice. The net is more durable than most as it hasn't yet developed any holes from getting snagged on twigs. Trying to stuff the net back inside the hat can be a bit of a battle. The small mesh size of the net is very good at keeping out small flies, but it can make it difficult to see, particularly when facing the sun, which creates a pretty strong "glare" on the net. This hat has good ventilation and sun protection.

    Comments about Bug Helios:

    Just get a dedicated bug net and put it over your existing hat. The net stores very poorly in this hat. It feels like it is bunched up against your head when it is in there, and it is very annoying to stow back in the hat! There is no veclro, zipper, snap, etc., to keep it up there, and it keeps falling out when you try to shove it in.
