 Product Description

The "Original" style - first introduced to the public in 1991. Provides good basic protection. The fabric is lightweight and cool but very densely woven so that mosquitoes can't bite through it. No-see-um mesh sleeves and sides allow cooling breezes in but keep biting insects out. The face mesh provides excellent visibility. All our bug shirts are made with no-see-um face mesh, to protect against even the tiniest no-see-ums and sand fleas. The zippered hood can be easily thrown back, and fits over a baseball cap or hard hat. Wrist closures seal the sleeves against biting insect intrusion. A drawstring at the waist with bow cord lock provides a positive seal at the bottom edge. The "Elite Edition" Bug Shirt is our most versatile - and most popular - style. It contains all the features of the "Original", in the same fabric and colour choices, plus these significant design enhancements: We moved the zipper from the bottom edge of the face mesh to the top, and put two sliders on it. This way you can open it just a tiny bit (to look clearly through binoculars, take photos or eat!) without letting the biting insects get to you. Because we used one zipper with two sliders, and not two zippers, that means you get to choose where the opening will be - maybe top dead centre (great for binoculars) or on one side so you can sneak a snack into your mouth before the bugs notice! We added an adjusting cord to the back of the hood, so you can effectively pull the hood back off your face if it falls too far forward and blocks your peripheral vision. This means we can accommodate all manner of neck lengths! By using both these features together you can wear the shirt with your face exposed but the rest of you protected, - added versatility! We added a ribbed cuff, and still kept the elastic cord adjusters at the wrist. This way you get added comfort and maximum effectiveness at keeping blackflies, no-see-ums and ticks out, and still keep blood flowing to your hands! We put an additional patch pocket with a velcro closing flap on the front of the shirt. We modified the shape of the sleeve to wrap your elbow more completely and prevent mosquitoes from attacking at that tender spot. We moved the location of the drawcord lock at the waist slightly to the left. This was as a result of comments from users out in the wilderness who found the old location just too centred!
