    Hey all. I work outside all day and at times the gnats and bugs are so annoying. I end up slapping myself a hundred times a day and I’m sick of it. I was wondering if anybody knew of a good quality hat preferably with a built in mesh net. I would prefer to be able to hide it somewhere on the hat for when I’m not dealing with the bugs. I’ve looked at a few on amazon and they all seem pretty decent, but as you all know, it’s fun to shop around and try to get the best. Haha. Thanks in advance!

    You could spray your hat with Permethrin. I use it on a lot of my summer clothing (including hats). It does an excellent job of keeping gnats, mosquitos, ticks and other nasty buggers away.

    When I was a firearms instructor back in the day I used to do that and worked like a charm
