      a nine day trip by canoe picked up by float plane. I was sad when this hat was washed out of my pocket when the boat overturned in a rapids. Portages were not pleasant after that.

        Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Bug Bucket Hat - Khaki XL:

        I bought the Bug Bucket back in 2009 after borrowing a regular over-the-hat bug net in 2008 to keep the Southern Utah juniper gnats away from my face. For those who do not know, juniper gnat is the local name for no-see-ums, and they get unbearably thick for about a month every summer. They are not deterred by DEET, citronella, Woodcutters, or anything else that is supposed to repel insects. This is the best bug net I've ever used. It is relatively easy to see through (if perfectly unobstructed vision is your goal, you should probably stick to sprays), very well-built, and very rugged. I hike off any paths in the back country in dense vegetation for survey, and have yet to tear a hole in the mesh. I also used the net in Guatemala when I was helping out a colleague, and found the hat to be very breathable in spite of the humidity.

            Fits well, stores easily into small carrying case. Works well to keep mosquitoes off of face. Cons: hard to see through. It would be good if the mesh were easier to see through, other then that, it does the job.

            Cannot see properly out of the mesh net

            Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Bug Bucket Hat - Khaki XL:

            I purchased this for a trip to SE Asia. This hat fits well and stores nicely into a tiny pouch. Unfortunately the mesh net is hard to see through, and after wearing it for 10 minutes my eyes got really tired, so I took it off and went with the old fashioned DEET spray. For casual use it is a little of an overkill. I can recommend it if you are allergic/opposed to DEET and are looking for a natural way to fend off insects. But the fact that I could not see through the net comfortably killed the deal for me.
