Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Wearable Mosquito Net

New York, NY, July 7, 2016 - Continuing its 168-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Hooded Zip Up Mosquito Jacket , and The Wearable Mosquito Net Pants, a matching set of lightweight apparel made to be worn over regular clothing to shield the skin from mosquitoes.

Without the use of harmful and malodorous chemicals, the jacket and pants are made from fine 1.2-mm netting and protect against insect-borne illnesses such as the Zika and West Nile virus, as well as the discomfort of itchy welts.

While standard insect repellents must be reapplied after several hours, these wearable nets provide continuous, nontoxic, and environmentally friendly coverage without DEET or fragrances. The polyester stretches to allow freedom of movement while engaging in outdoor pursuits, and it breathes so it won't trap heat, helping you stay cool even in tropical climates.

"We've been helping our customers avoid the annoyance of mosquitoes for decades," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns. "With recent concerns about the Zika virus, we wanted to create a product that helps keep our customers safe as they enjoy the outdoors."

An upward flick deploys the stroller for use and it supports children between 6 months up to 55 lbs. Rolling on four pairs of twin wheels- the front wheels can swivel or lock-in straight- it meets all ASTM safety standards with a five-point harness, and includes a sunshade and mesh storage compartment.

The Hooded Zip Up Mosquito Jacket and The Wearable Mosquito Net Pants are available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $59.95 and $29.95. For more information about these products, please visit and or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at
