ExOfficio BugsAway - Focus on the adventure, not the bugs!


The Summer travel season is on the horizon, and no matter where you go, even if it’s as close as your own backyard, you’re going to be sharing the space with insects. If the prospect of covering yourself with bug repellent is unappealing, Whole Earth Provision Co. may have just what you’re looking for: BugsAway clothing from ExOfficio.


Summer brings the usual lineup of biting insects – mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. They’re always annoying and can sometimes carry diseases. ExOfficio’s BugsAway clothing offers an odorless, invisible Insect Shield technology using a built-in insect repellent Permethrin. Once applied, it is so tightly bound to fabric fibers that garments retain full effective repellency through 70 washings.  It can be washed and dried just like a normal garment as well as bleached, starched and pressed without effect on the repellent quality (just don’t dry clean it, as this removes the treatment). BugsAway is available in shirts, pants, hoodies, jackets, caps and bandanas, perfect for men and women whose adventures take them into the wild or wherever biting bugs reside.


The Men’s ExOfficio BugsAway Halo Check Long Sleeve Shirt was made for outdoor activities like sightseeing, fishing, hiking and even working in the yard. It not only keeps bugs at bay but also has UPF 50 sun protection. It’s lightweight, quick drying, and packs small should you take it with you on your travels. It also has two chest pockets, one with a security zip pocket so your phone or other valuables won’t take a tumble.


Ladies, are you looking for a cool, lightweight jacket for your outdoor adventures? Checkout the the BugsAway Damselfly Jacket. The jacket is made of a breathable mesh with reinforced shoulders and side panels, UPF 30 sun protection, and a hood to keep insects away from your ears and face. Should you be traveling, it packs small into one of its security zip pockets.


It never hurts to travel with a bandana in your bag. And when the bandana is an ExOfficio BugsAway Bandana, you can pull it out at a moment’s notice to protect your neck or head from biting insects. It’s also a breathable way to wick away moisture when you’re protecting your neck from sunburn.


If you have to cope with annoying insects, BugsAway from ExOfficio may be just what you need to keep them at bay. And like all ExOfficio clothing, it’s also great for traveling. It packs small, can be washed up in a sink and dries quickly for wearing the next day.
