Archant

Owen Beardsmore puts the new Midge Armour midge net with integrated glasses to the test, and finds it a perfect solution to rid yourself those irritating critters!

products products

If you enjoy your sport, in any area that you may encounter the dreaded midge you will no doubt have in your kit bag some form of protection, be it spray or midge net.

Weather you shoot, stalk or fish, a day in the woods, moor or on the river can be ruined by this ferocious foe with their relentless attack on any uncovered human flesh to feast on.

We can cover up and spray ourselves as best we can but we still need clear visibility to enjoy our pastimes during the ‘season of the midge’ which can range from May to late September.

How nice it was to discover a new innovation on the midge net from Midge Armour, which incorporates a pair of wrap-around clear glasses within the net. It is simple and easy to put on, although a little care is needed as the net material is quite fine, but once installed you hardly know you have it on. The elasticated collar is adjustable to ensure a sealed fit, and of course the clear glasses afford you full vision, something a standard ‘midge net’ doesn’t, which can hamper operations like glassing with your binoculars, tying a fly or watching for a pack of grouse on a moorland horizon.

Although you may think this is a product mainly for Scotland, I have used it regularly in the woodlands of southern England and even on early-season duck flights or an afternoon’s pigeon decoying in the Midlands. It stops any flying ‘bitey’ things and affords you maximum clear visibility of your surroundings. The product comes in a light metal box to protect it when not in use or stored in your kit bag.

The product tested was the Original range that use wrap-around-style safety spectacles but there is also a Pro range with tinted lenses and foam insert to give a softer fit.

RRP: £39.95
