Backpacking Light Ultralight Noseeum Headnet (DISCONTINUED)

This 0.66 oz. micro weave noseeum headnet features superior protection against biting insects as well as improved ventilation.

Description:

Anyone who has spent time in the wilderness knows that one of the biggest barriers to a relaxing day in the woods is a relentless cloud of hungry insects that see you as part of the food chain. To make matters worse, most headnets designed to combat those flying critters are heavy (for what they actually accomplish), don’t fit well, don’t stay in place, are not very breathable, and reduce the visibility of the scenery that you came out to enjoy in the first place.

Backpacking Light has addressed these issues and more with their ultralight noseeum neadnet. With simplicity and performance at its core, this headnet is designed to provide ultimate protection from small insects such as midges, gnats and noseeums, while increasing visibility and ventilation in comparison to other, more mainstream micro-weave headnets. Plus, at 0.66 oz., there’s no reason not to bring it along even if you’re not anticipating buggy conditions.

Limitations:

  • While vastly improved, the tight weave of the noseeum mesh is still less breathable than its mosquito mesh counterpart. This is most noticeable in warmer conditions. If greater ventilation is desired, one solution may be to treat a more breathable mosquito net with permithrin-based insecticide.
  • The small pore size of the noseeum net also decreases visibility and can promote a ‘closed-in’ sensation in some people. Still, this is a small price to pay for the comfort of not being eaten alive.

Features:

  • Ultralight micro weave offers supreme protection from even the smallest insects.
  • Spacious interior increases air circulation, and total volume is maximized when paired with a brimmed cap.
  • Fitted drop front is compatible with shirts featuring zip-neck designs, thus eliminating the need for a typical cylindrical headnet.
  • Bottom hem uses ultralight drawcord and toggle to save weight, while allowing for varying adjustments between increased protection and ventilation.
  • Elastic crown secures the headnet over your brimmed cap, thus keeping it in place during high winds, heavy brush, or while pulled up and not in use.
  • Smaller threads are softer and more pleasant to the skin than many mosquito nets.
  • Extremely lightweight materials mean that packing this noseeum headnet is truly a no-brainer.

Specifications:

  • Fabric: Ultralight, tightly-woven synthetic noseeum mesh
  • Color: Black
  • Weight: 0.66 oz.
