Outdoor Research Bug Protection

Posted on

When you're heading into the mountains, more often than not you're going to encounter terrain inhabited by hungry, annoying bugs. To defend against mosquitoes, ticks, black flies and other insects-including those that can carry disease-Outdoor Research makes apparel designed to protect you from bites, some of which is treated with Insect Shield, an effective, odorless and EPA-registered insect repellent.

ARE THESE BUGOUT GAITERS WATER RESISTANT AT ALL? I WILL BE USING THEM FOR HUNTING AND NEED A BIT OF WATER SHEDDING ABILITY.

Responded on

Hey Gary,

Decently water resistant but certainly not water proof. You could always apply a Nikwax to them to aide in water shedding.

not so great in a way

Probably will keep the bugs at bay (have other bugout items), but a Man's Small and a Man's Medium would not fit my 5'3" ladies frame (140 lb.) No big thunder thighs or calves here but both men's sizes would not close around the top unless I cut off my circulation! Sorry to send back, I do have the Expedition Men's Small gaiter which just fits!

I am going to Niger on medical trip. Will these keep out the sand?

Responded on

Hey,

It will keep sand out just fine if you are talking about it simply kicking up on the sides of your boots/shoes. However, if you are walking in deep sand that would be past boot/shoe height then you may have some issue keeping it out.

Will these keep moisture out from wet brush?

Responded on

Yep. They're not waterproof, but they'll keep the water off pant legs and out of the top of shoes.
