The Skeeter Beater – Gear Review

Ever think of a time you needed to rest while driving or even wanted to camp in your vehicle? Most of the time you would want to roll down your windows to let in the cool air but there are always pesky bugs flying right in. The Skeeter Beater solves that problem with a quick easy to set up and effective product.

The Skeeter Beater is a bug net that connects to the outside of your vehicle with magnets that will not hurt the paint. It allows to you to have the windows rolled down or keep the doors open(on some vehicles) while keeping the pesky bugs out. There are 10 different sizes to fit most vehicles. The Skeeter Beater is compatible with wide range of vehicles that span from RVs all the way down to cars.  They also have several different colors to choose from.

They are super simple to use and set up quickly. The best part is they work great. A perfect gift for any outdoor enthusiast, road tripper, or car camper. With a cost of around $45 it is well worth the investment. Keep in mind that the cost does vary depending on your vehicle make and model. They stuff into a provided stuff sack and can be put in your vehicle without taking up any room at all. They can fit behind the seats, under your seats, or even in your glove box.  I keep mine in my Jeep all the time now and try to find every opportunity to use them.

    Interesting product. The thing I’m curious about is vehicle speed. Is this designed for slow moving cars (like on safari) because otherwise I think I would imagine the wind created by a moving vehicle would keep the bugs away. And would the product stay on during higher speeds?

      From The information provided to me and on their website they are mostly to be used for camping and what not while stationary.

    Most of them run about the same price however some of he much larger ones for RVs are more expensive. You an also buy the materials to make your own to fit.

      Compare the price to SKREENZ

    Interesting. I prefer to crack the window when sleeping in the car, so this would save me from the swarms!

    Sounds like a pretty handy idea. The bugs aren’t too bad where I am at currently on the west coast but I know they would be of use in other parts of the country. It sounds like they would work effectively if I pop the very back tailgate door on our SUV or is that too big of an area?

      Dave you can take a look at their website for different sized panels they sell. They also have a DIY kit to fit to any of your windows or doors.
