These actually work! - Review by

I just returned from a week on safari in Tanzania. I wore these bandanas every day, along with the BugsAway socks. Out of five people in our vehicle, I was the only one who did not have a single bite! Highly recommend!!

Cute bandana - Review by

I got this for hiking locally and traveling in tropical climates. I gave it three stars just on cuteness alone! I tried it out on a hike in a wetlands wildlife preserve with tons of bugs, and it seemed to work. I wish it was larger and not such a stiff fabric though. It does need to be ironed after washing and drying, because the fabric is a little heavy and stiff.

Some bugs away.... - Review by

Doing field work, I found that these bandanas worked to keep insects from crawling down my neck, a very good thing. However, I still needed a hat for my head and insect repellent spray on long pants from the knees down, including my hiking shoes. Overall, I recommend the bandanas as part of a "bite-free" strategy if you travel into biting/stinging insect territory in your travels.

Family trip - Review by

I ordered these items because my family is planning a vacation in a National Park. I want everyone to be "bug free" so they can enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
