The Bug Helios Hat has adapted the original lightweight sun hat which still provides lots of protection with it's UPF50+. It features an inbuilt bug net that can be stored away while maintaining the comfortable fit. 

Outdoor Research says:

We've taken our bestselling sun hat, the Helios, and snuck a bug net into the crown. Same breathable UPF 50+ sun protection, same breathability and moisture wicking, combined with the best place to store a bug net for when you need it. No fishing around in your pack, because it's on your head - just pull it out.

Outdoor Research's Bug Helios Hat is made from lightweight absorbent material that will keep you comfortable even in warm sun. There`s an absorbent internal rim so sweat won`t get into your eyes and that really wide brim - which is what the original version of this hat was all about.

The bug net is cleverly stored in the crown of the hat, by rolling or folding it up and tucking it under the flat running around the crown. When tucked away, the bug net doesn't stand out or feel uncomfortable when you're wearing it. Its really practical and easy to pull out if the wind drops and the bugs return or fold up when it's not needed.
