Do pesky mosquitoes and black flies drive you crazy?
Get back in the garden or on the trails with this lightweight insect head net and jacket.
The fine, hexagonal mesh is soft, flexible and excludes all
but the tiniest insects, yet allows excellent visibility and
air circulation. Bug Jacket cinches around your waist and
wrists, with removable mitts and a zippered hood. Head
Net cinches around your neck and shoulders. Both work
best with a small- to medium-brim hat, not included.

LOVE this product!
By Patty B
from Staten Island, NY
I bought this jacket and the ankle protectors to check it out. I have a large yard and haven't been able to enjoy going outdoors because Mosquitos love me. I have to spray myself with bug repellent all the time. Now that I have this jacket I can go out without spraying myself and garden or walk my dog without getting bitten by anything. I would prefer not to have the face area black (because no one can recognize you), but that won't stop me from ordering another one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Friends want one
from Arlington, VA
Now I don't need to wear a heavy long-sleeved shirt to protect against bugs. REI makes a head net with a metal band to keep it away from the face - a wide brimmed hat might be a substitute. I like not having to adjust the wrists, and don't really need to adjust the waist. The medium is pretty big - should have gotten a small.
Bug Jacket works
I like it because bugs realy can't bit through. I thought I would need a shirt underneath it, but such was not the case. I wear it at night when every insect wants to make you their lunch and I didn't get any bites.

I would buy this product again
from Birmingham, AL
I get bit all the time in the spring and summer especially when I'm doing dog poop pickup. I am usually covered head to toe and have bug spray all over. THis is perfect because I can wear thin pants and then something light under the jacket. the head part is darker than the rest which I don't know why and can be a bit claustrophobic but works like a charm! It is just what I needed and will be using for a long time.

Bug jacket works great!
By Susan's in the Garden
from Spokane, Wash.
This is the 2nd spring in a row that we've had a problem with biting black flies and their bites are very painful and irritating. I saw this product in the most recent Gardener's Supply catalog and knew it was worth trying. I bought a medium and it fits loosely but is not too oversized as to be a nuisance. Did some gardening and could hear the black flies trying to get at me but they weren't successful. Halleluia! If you'd like to see a photo of how the bug jacket fits an average-build woman, I recently put one on my gardening blog, susansinthegarden.blogspot.com. Just scroll down to the post. Since telling some of my Master Gardener colleagues about the bug jacket, they've bought one as well and are very pleased. It was definitely worth the price! My only constructive criticism is that I wish manufacturers of head nets would design them so you could see through them a little more easily but visibility is still quite good in this product.
