Insect Shield Neck Gaiter. Built-in bug repellent for mosquitoes, ticks, flies and fleas. Aviailable in Sm, Med & Lg.
The Insect Shield process binds a proprietary permethrin formula tightly to fabric fibers—resulting in effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of apparel. Insect Shield® Repellent Apparel has been proven and registered to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums). Many species and varieties of these insects have been tested, including those that can carry dangerous diseases. Insect Shield technology results from years of intensive research and field study. Numerous studies have confirmed the effectiveness of permethrin-treated clothing as an insect repellent. The results all conclusively show that our unique, long-lasting insect protection works. The repellency of Insect Shield apparel is EPA-registered to last through 70 launderings—the expected lifetime of a garment. This is also well beyond the life of most performance finishes commonly used in the technical-apparel industry.
