Whether you’re backpacking in the mountains of South Dakota or the South American rain forests, a mosquito net is a mandatory camping supply.
These bugs are a nuisance at best and deadly disease carriers at worst. Fortunately, there are hundreds of products on the market to fit all kinds of situations.
If you’re feeling fancy, you can even get mosquito nets made of cotton or organic silk.
Below is a guide for picking the best mosquito nets for travel and camping.
