Bye bye bugs

Verified Buyer Reviewed by JJ from Paradise, CA on Thursday, August 18, 2011
Just spent a week backpacking in the high Sierras of California and wore this shirt every day. The mosquitos were plentiful and hungry this year but I didn't get any bites, not a single one, on my arms, chest, or back. Awesome! I usually wear a petite small but ordered this shirt in XS and still had enough room to layer underneath. The shirt has pockets and vents in all the right places, and looks good tucked in or worn out. One drawback is that this shirt takes awhile to dry. I washed it out at night and it felt a teeny bit damp in the morning. Other shirts on the market dry faster. To me, this shirt feels more "cottony" and is quiet though, whereas the other shirts feel more like plastic and make swishy sounds. I would still buy it, though, because of the great style features and the fact that it keeps bugs away.
