MOSQUITO NETS

If your next adventure takes you someplace with biting insects, pack a COCOON mosquito net for extra protection. The mosquito nets are available with or without INSECT SHIELD insect protection.

With 324 holes per square inch, COCOON mosquito nets are fine enough to effectively protect against mosquitoes but also allow enough air flow for a comfortable night's sleep in the tropics. In addition to the optimized mesh size, the treatment with INSECT SHIELD* makes these mosquito nets perfect tools in the battle against insects and insect-borne diseases. The World Health Organization recommends the use of impregnated mosquito nets in areas with an increased malaria risk.

For trips to areas with less dangerous but tiny insects we recommend the new unimpregnated Noseeum Nets with a mesh size of more than 1000 holes per square inch.

 

*About Insect Shield:

  • Effective: Repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, chiggers, and midges.
  • Built-in: The active ingredient is a man-made version of a natural insect repellent found in certain types of chrysanthemum plants.
  • Long-lasting: Gear repellency lasts through six months of constant exposure to sun and rain.
  • Convenient: Invisible, odorless insect protection that does not have to be re-applied.
  • Tested: Registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it can be used by pregnant or nursing women and children of any age.
