How It Works

The tech behind our BugsAway gear has been perfected after years of intensive research and field study. Using Insect Shield’s® proprietary formula, Permethrin is tightly bound to fabric fibers. This creates the built-in BugsAway effect without the use of topical treatments like bug spray and other insect repellents.

More About BugsAway

Apparel and accessories in our BugsAway Collection were developed to keep mosquitoes away and fight off other pesky insects. Useful for lyme disease prevention, mosquito control, and tick control, layer up in BugsAway long-sleeve shirts, hoodies, lightweight jackets, travel pants, leggings with pockets, and more for bite- and itch-free comfort.


Whether you're deep in the backwoods or exploring in your own backyard, critters can lurk everywhere from brushy areas to shady hideaways. Unlike bug sprays and mosquito repellents, our BugsAway styles don't smell, leave greasy or sticky residue, or require reapplications. Plus, offered in tailored silhouettes and modern colors, you don't need to sacrifice style for bug-repelling performance.
