We love the outdoors, but we all hate bugs, and sometimes the potential health risks of traditional insect repellents are almost as bad as the bugs themselves. The ExOfficio Women's Bugsaway Halo Check Long-Sleeve Shirt is a wrinkle-free, bug-repelling, UV-blocking, ventilated top that is built for adventures. Permethrin is built into the fabric, stays in your clothes, not on your skin, and lasts through 70 washings. Slip into this shirt whether your adventures take you to a backyard barbecue or an exotic safari. The Halo's anti-insect fabric effectively repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums).

I love everything about this shirt except for the velcro on the pocket. Unfortunately, I am returning it because this ruins other clothes that you pack or wash with it. Don't understand why both pockets aren't both zippers.

BugsAway Halo Check Long Sleeve Shirt

The BugsAway Halo is perfect for buggy, hot weather. It is crafted from sun protective lightweight nylon and features a Vertebrae Ventilation System and mesh-lined shoulders. The Halo also features two front pockets and a hidden button-down collar and roll-up sleeve tabs. Permethrin, the active ingredient in Insect Shield®, is invisible, odorless, and tightly bonded to the fabric fibers, and lasts the expected lifetime of the garment (70 washes). It repels mosquitoes (including those carrying West Nile virus and malaria), ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums). The Halo provides sun protection with a UPF 30+ rating and dries quickly. Finally, an insect repellent shirt that stops the bugs and starts the adventure. Insect Shield® repellent lasts 70 washings.

I have a half dozen of these shirts. I love them so much for when I'm on African safari and southeast asia jungles, that I purchased this one, but it is not at all like the ones I purchased in past. First one of the pockets has velcro rather than both having zippers; I dislike velcro which can ruin other clothes you wear or wash with it. Second the material is rough and cheap texture feeling - no where the quality of the other versions I have that are very soft and lovely feel on the body.
