Top 5 Mosquito Nets for Travelling

Last Updated on

We sell so many different types of mosquito net for travelling that it can all get a bit confusing for people trying to choose the right net for their trip. Do you need a pop up net or will a wedge net suffice? In this post we’ll be running through our top 5 mosquito nets for travelling, detailing the benefits of each style and why they’ve made our top 5!

1) Trekmates Tour Multi-Hang Mosquito Net

This mosquito net is perfect for travellers who may need a variety of different hanging options for their net during their trip. The Tour net from Trekmates comes with 4 different hanging options, including the commonly used wedge style, ridge (great for hanging between two trees) and box shape. The wedge option actually accounts for two of the hanging options, as you can either create a wedge with a single hanging point, or you can suspend the net from two points for a larger internal sleeping area.

2) Care Plus Pop Up Dome Mosquito Net

The Care Plus Pop Up Dome is the best net for travellers who are unsure whether or not their accommodation will have mosquito net hanging points, or for those who really don’t want to mess around hanging their net up once they reach the hostel. It’s also a good option if you’re camping or staying in remote areas. Simply pull it out of the bag and it will pop up to create a mosquito-free haven. A word of warning, packing away a pop up net is a bit of an art form, make sure you practice packing it away before you travel – it comes with instructions, so you’ll soon get the hang of it! (pun intended)

3) Lifesystems Supernet Mosquito Net

The smallest and lightest mosquito net in our range, the Lifesystems Supernet comes with a single hanging point for easy suspension and packs down to a compact 16 x 8cm in size. Nets with a single hanging point are a good option for hostels, guest houses and other types of accommodation, as you only have to worry about finding a single hanging point for your net, which most types of accommodation will have. It’ll also take up minimal space in your backpack, so is ideal if you’re short of packing space.
