Product Information

Insect Shield ® Hiker-style Sun Hat with Chin Cord

  • Thin foam pad in crown keeps the hat afloat in water

  • Reduces the need for messy sprays and oily repellents
  • Adjustable chin cord keeps hat secure in windy conditions

Introducing an extraordinary line of headwear that not only protects you from the sun but also repels biting insects. Insect Shield's active ingredient is Permethrin, a man-made form of a natural insect repellent, to provide protection against biting insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, flies and chiggers. These insects are known to carry dangerous diseases including West Nile virus and Lyme disease. Insect Shield products are EPA registered and offer convenient, comfortable and long-lasting insect protection through 70 washes. It creates a barrier while you work, reducing the need for messy sprays and oily repellents.

This Insect Shield hiker-style sun hat features side snaps allowing it to be worn in several different configurations. A large 3" brim provides ample protection from the glaring sun. Four large screened eyelets help to circulate air to keep you cool. Crown features a removable thin foam pad which keeps the hat afloat if dropped in the water. Adjustable chin cord keeps your hat secure in the windiest of conditions. Moisture-wicking sweatband. Imported. Specify color and size: M (7 to 7-1/8), L (7-1/4 to 7-3/8) or XL (7-1/2 to 7-5/8) from the selection box above. See drop down for colors and sizes currently available.

        Comments about Insect Shield Hiker-style Sun Hat:

        My husband loves the fact that he has not been bothered by flies, mosquitos etc flying around his head since he received this hat. We live in a wooded area on a creek which flies, mosquitos, ticks and other flying and crawling insects love.

            Comments about Insect Shield Hiker-style Sun Hat:

            I'm a geocacher and spend time out in the environment in south east Texas All hours of the day and night. I thought this hat would repel the mosquitoes but it seems to attract them. I am very disappointed in this product. But I guess that is the American Way, so I'll just roll with that punch again...
