With a 50+ UPF rating, a broad brim, and integrated tuck-away no-see-um netting, the Outdoor Research Bug Helios Hat is a highly-functional option for warm-weather hiking, paddling, or traveling.
The hat’s nylon and polyester shell is lightweight and breathable. The fabric wicks moisture and dries quickly if it should become wet. An external drawcord adjustment ensures a comfortable fit and the TransAction headband wicks moisture and enhances comfort.
Tucked into the brim when not needed, a fine mesh bug net drapes comfortably over your face and down onto your shoulders to fend off pesky and potentially harmful insects. A drawcord adjustment enables you to pull the netting in close to ensure that you are fully protected.
The Outdoor Research Bug Helios Hat is available in your choice of color and size options.

- Trips to Louisiana Made Easier
Likes: Keeps horse flies and other state birds off of my head, face, and neck when I travel to the bayou and other similar places away from Norcal where I live. Actually, I can use this here also with the swarms of gnats along the bay. Feels comfy even when the screen is unfurled and absorbs sweat commandingly. No pith helmet needed here.
Dislikes: Tuck-away netting kind of fat around the head when not deployed.
