Midge Head Net - "The Stopper"
Midge hood designed by us and made for us in Scotland.
We also sell packs of plain midge netting, 150cm wide (60 inches), in 1.1, 3 or 20 metre lengths. Keep out the midgie!
Often you'll be putting the head net on with clouds of midges about, so it's a good idea first to brush the midges off your head and neck - and we find it's effective to whirl the midgie net around your head like a maniac to get rid of the midges around you then put the net on quickly (but carefully)! The seam should be at the back of the head, not the front. The head net is a bit tailored, and people with large heads may find it a bit tight or perhaps claustrophobic at first. The material is really comfortable, so please persevere - you should get used to it. We found that with midge nets made with large amounts of netting, you could get 2 or 3 or even more folds in front of the eyes, and not be able to see a thing. Also if a net is too loose and baggy it can get tangled in low-lying branches. Our head net fits over glasses, but not over a hat - it fits easily under hats. When taking the midge net off, don't pull from the top as it's a delicate fabric, ease it off carefully from the loosely elasticated neck. In an emergency it can be pulled off quickly. The net can be stored wet without spoiling but is better stored dry. Because of the extremely fine mesh material, our head net keeps light rain off the face, and the microfibre top is showerproof. You can safely spray our midge repellent - Stop Bite (currently unavailable - EU regulations!) on your head and neck before putting on the head net. The migdy net was 4 week soak tested in Stop Bite to prove it doesn't get damaged. For sitting around outdoors we have citronella, lavender and bog myrtle candles. Advice? Try the midgieman.
