With such a wide range of mosquito nets available it is often hard to know which net to choose. It really does depend on what type of trip you need the net for. If you are backpacking and space is limited the Ultra net may be the most suitable as this net comes in a very compact bag. If you are camping then the Care Plus Pop Up Dome net or the Lifesystems Geo Net would be ideal. Here we look at the different nets available.
If you are travelling to an area where malaria is present we recommend you purchase a net with long lasting impregnation (LLI) in. These nets are impregnated with chemicals that last for up to 2 years and a mosquito will die on contact if it lands on the net. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend these if you are visiting a malaria risk area.
