Mosquitoes love me: I usually get bit within 5 minutes of going outside. I ordered the Youth Large of this jacket because the Women's Smalls were gone. It fits great. The elastic at the wrist is not too tight but keeps the bugs from flying up the sleeve. Of course I got a couple of mosquito bites on my hand, but none under the jacket. Plus I think because of the repellent and the lack of landing sites, it seems the mosquitoes left me alone after a while (my legs were also covered.) I found the jacket to be a little hot while I was hiking, but standing around the yard it was fine. The hood and pockets are nice to have, but it would be better if the hood could be pulled tight. Still, I am very happy with the purchase
