The reason a fan jacket works is because it puts too much space between your skin and the outer fabric so they can't reach your skin 4. Normally the feed on pigs, cows aand horses so can go through quite thick clothing, DEET seems to deter them if you don't mind spraying that.
for both you and @Zasso Nouka , horseflies hate vinegar. Spraying apple cider vinegar on your clothing, as well as wearing light coloured clothing should help a lot.
