Good alternative to bug spray

I've used it several times

If you are going to be in an area notorious for bugs these are a great alternative to bathing yourself in DEET. I used my bug pants, as well as the matching hooded jacket, for a solid 24 hours on the first day of a five day river trip down Desolation Canyon on a section of river that is known to be saturated with mosquitos. These worked really well and I only really got bitten on uncovered skin on my ankles and feet (I opted not to wear the included socks as they weren't very compatible with my Chacos), I probably could have been bite free if I had used these in combination with bug spray. It was nearly 100 degrees, so I appreciated how lightweight and breezy these were. They were also super quick and easy to throw on over my other clothes without having to take my Chacos off. The sizing was probably a little on the small side, I am normally always a Medium in pants and these were maybe a bit on the short side in the length, but were close enough that I didn't need to size up. If you hate bugs, these are a life saver and it is really nice not to have to worry about applying and re-applying bug spray.

its ok

I've used it several times

if you really dont like bugs landing on you, then you need one of these. I wore this bug outfit over regular clothes, and if I had a couple layers on, mosquitoes couldnt really bite me.

Not exactly what I was hoping for

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Mosquitos love me!!! I got this thinking that I would be immune to those little vampires... immune may not quite be the right word in this situation. They definitely do help with the bugs, but by no means are 100% in the clear. When the mesh lays against your skin the mosquitos can still land do their drilling. In extreme insect encounters this combined with some bug spray is a pretty good way to go. These pants definitely run small. I highly recommend sizing down one size.


I'm not sure what to make of these, are...

I'm not sure what to make of these, are they to be worn over your regular pants?
