Have a look at the range available from the manufacturer of Birdiepal Euroschirm in Germany;
There's some amusing demonstration videos of a hapless German backpacker in there, poor sucker gets a hammering.
I tried carrying a brolly, even put a Golite Chrome dome on a treking pole, trouble is I kept leaving them behind in a forest/on a mountain top somewhere, still feeling the loss, even now.
Get a good hat with a wide brim for your mossie net, and a waterproof jacket with a full zip for venting. You won't forget them and you'll not notice them/have to fumble around accomodating their presence. Multipurpose and lighter too.
