This was one of the very very many impulse purchases that hubby and made when we were shopping in preparation for the arrival of our little man. There were lots of things on our list and lots of things that weren't on our list that we got anyway and this was one of the latter.
We initially bought it because our baby was due at the beginning of spring and so we envisaged lots of walking and, although we don't live anywhere that has massive bug problems, we didn't want the little man to be bitten or bothered by summer creatures. The cover only cost £6 so it wasn't too much to part with if it was rubbish. As it is, it's not a bad thing to have really, especially if you are walking in the woods and such like.
The net is almost like a giant elastic aged shower cap in style, which means that it will fit any buggy or pram. It also means that it will fit on any car seat as well which is brilliant as a lot of these universal things don't fit very well on car seats. It fits really snugly on all things as well, which is good.
The net is transparent which means that the little man doesn't mind it being on because he can see through it well enough.
Overall I would say that it is a good purchase really. It is good value for money and I would recommend it. The only problem I can see with it is that it doesn't have any UV protection so it won't be suitable for use in hot countries by itself, which is a shame.
