Smidge Midge-proof Head Net is  a lightweight head net with a super-fine mesh to keep the smallest of biting insects out. For anyone with a head for adventure, it's an essential bit of kit

Its fine, soft mesh ensures excellent visibility, yet keeps even the most persisent of midges out of your hair, as well as mosquitoes and other biting pests

The Proof - Scientifically field-tested
Smidge has been scientifically field-tested on the soft, fleshy parts of brave souls in the harshest regions of Scotland. Thanks to those fearless men and women, you can rely on Smidge to keep the beasties at bay during your next adventure

Effective, Safe Protection
Smidge has a tough, yet family-friendly formula containing 20% Picaridin (Saltidin®), an active ingredient giving you instant protection for up to 8 hours. Yet unlike DEET, Smidge is non-corrosive, and won’t melt your watch or your boots. As you can see from the chart below it works across a broad spectrum of biting pests, including mosquitoes (vectors for Zika Virus and Malaria) and ticks (vectors for Lyme disease)

In fact, the World Health Organisation have concluded that the active ingredient in Smidge (20% Picaridin (Saltidin®)) demonstrated excellent repellent properties comparable and often superior to those of DEET (WHO, 2000) and recommended its use for travellers against mosquitoes and other disease carrying insects (WHO, 2012.) Arm yourself with Smidge and win the fight against those biters. Repellent Efficacy of 20% Saltidin
