Insect Shield – First Impressions

Insect Sheild is an insect repellent technology that is infused into garments with a odorless, long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection. The proprietary process binds the permethrin formula right to the fibers. The process has been proven to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums). With companies like Orvis, Tilley, GameHide, L.L. Bean, and more using the Insect Shield technology that’s a pretty good sign that it works.

As you might have guessed, I will be taking this Insect Shield gear to Algonquin National Park, my favorite new proving ground for outdoor gear. The mosquitoes and black flies are in season so we’ll see just how Insect Shield holds up under the pressure.
