Reviewed by Gwen from Missouri on Friday, December 27, 2013I thought I'd never again be able to venture outdoors, especially working in my garden, without mosquito-repellent spray, but this jacket made it possible. Even at dusk, they stayed away from areas covered. I still needed spray to uncovered areas if I was out for more than a few minutes, but this is a big improvement. I hated dousing myself with chemicals when I'd only be out for a very short time. The only entrance I used late in the day was the one where this was hanging.
Reviewed by Alice T from Virginia on Tuesday, August 6, 2013I got the Youth Size Large of this jacket because they do not have a women's Large. It fits great. I normally wear size 4 The jacket works well
Reviewed by Gardner and Dog Owner from Rhode Island on Monday, July 22, 2013The weather has been hot, humid and buggy! This extremely lightweight, soft, draping jacket makes walking our dogs in the woods possible again. By size I am a medium but I bought the large because I wanted longer sleeves to be able to protect my hands. I love this jacket! It feels great on and it is surprisingly flattering. Highly recommended.
Reviewed by MI traveler from Michigan on Thursday, July 18, 2013I lived in this jacket the entire week and a half of my mid-summer fishing vacation in northern Ontario. The black flies and mosquitos were thick, but I had no bites where I was covered with Insect Blocker clothing. This little jacket was lightwieght and looked great.... (well, maybe not as great as at the beginning of the vacation). I recommend it highly.
Reviewed by Julie from Canada on Thursday, July 18, 2013Good quality jacket. I bought one size larger than usual but that's just a personal preference. I like having the longer sleeves and extra material to block the insects. It seems to be working, certainly for the areas that are covered. It doesn't however repel the insects away from your face. Got stung just on the edge of the hood. Overall great jacket, but I have to agree with another review I read that suggested the zipper be extended completely to the top of the hood. Just would give you the option of zipping up entirely and protecting the face. Definitely would buy again. As a matter of fact friends like it so much that I'm getting a couple more for friends.
Question & Answer
This jacket does not have the feature of folding up into its on pocket.
“What can I use the Columbia insect blocker mesh jacket for? would it be great for fly fishing? is it supposed to be for a certain sport?”
It can be used for any sport that you would encounter biting insects. Would be great for fly fishing.
“Is this jacket water resistant? Wind resistant? It is in the rain jacket section but only identifies about being insect repellant.”
The jacket is not waterproof.
