Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more swatting!! I bought this to use when hiking with my dog in the woods, to combat the mosquitos and deer flies which bite me as well as the gnats which bedevil me by buzzing around my head. It works perfectly and is more clever than I expected. The whole thing compacts into a small pouch built into the inside of its top to make a small 5" x 7" package which stuffs into a hip pocket. If you need just shade, you can wear it with the netting rolled up over the brim - who cares if you look a bit weird in the woods? The only downside is that with the netting down your world will be a touch darker and less sharp. Just in the nature of netting, and not having to swat constantly is the payoff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple insect relief I love this hat--it has saved me from all kinds of insects who want to interrupt my walk by getting in my face. I like to roll the netting up on the brim. Although it looks a little strange to the uninitiated, it doesn't take up space within the hat that way and produce a too-tight fit.

How many holes/square inch? What is the length of the netting (your other option - netting only - has a few bad reviews due to the length of the net (too short)? Is this treated with a chemical insect repellent?

Asked by: Suzanne64
Unfortunately, the holes/square inch is not available. The netting measures 13 ¾ inches long, and it is not treated with a chemical insect repellent. ​
