The Bug Bucket hat stuffs into a hidden pocket, allowing it to stow easily when not in use.

Get some inches between you and buggers

I used this camping and walking by the lake where tons of mosquitoes were. It worked perfectly.

I have a bug buff, and it works well, but nothing can work as well as having a net that separates the buggers from your face by a few inches.

This hat definitely provides sun protection which is nice during the day but was slightly annoying when the sun went down because it reduced visibility.

This hat also packs away into a tiny flat circle that is more compact than my buff. It is super easy to pack and practically weightless.

good item

    Very convenient - fits in a pocket, lightweight. Visibility is not bad. The net however bothers when not in use - there is no way to fold it while using a hat as for a sun protection only. It also gets caught on scrub but the mesh nylon is pretty strong - i didn't have any holes so far. I'm sensitive to bug bites so it helps me a lot to explore Florida swamps.

    Write your question here...I need a size small. I didn't see that size are you out or isn't it available?

    If the size is not their they dont have it laying around some place. I dont think that there is even a small in this hat i think the lowest is a medium

    great product

      This product is a life saver, or skin saver. Really helps keep you cool, and keeps the bugs off your face. Used it in North Carolina and kept the flies, and mosquito away. Will agree it could use a strap to keep it on your head. Ajustable netting tightness is nice.

      great hat

        this thing saved me on the Green River, there were mesquitos everywhere, and then durning the day the net fit in the hat without issue. The only thing its missing is strap to keep it on your head, but for normal use at the campsite it was great.

        The Bucket!

          This is a nifty hat. Keeps those awful buffalo gnats from eating my face and ears very well. When you are just using it for the hat and not the bug net it's not quite as nice as a regular bucket, but that's ok. It folds up into a nice little attached pouch with a biner loop. Good hat

          great hay

            I had a hard time finding something like this. its the best Ive seen

            Bug Bucket Hat

              It works beautifully to keep those pesky gnats out of your face in the spring time! I love it!

              Comfortable mosquito protection

                Though a slightly larger brim might help keep the net off the face and ears, this hat is very satisfactory. The net can be comfortably stowed in crown for unimpeded sunhat use.
