So good so far after one test…I bought a pink Areia hoodie for myself and a grey one for my husband in advance of a trip to a no-see-um infested area. These insects had caused some serious scarring on my neck in the past that I still have, and I was praying this shirt would work. No bites on my neck or body (insects were visible). I kept the neck closed tightly with a bobby pin because it was a bit loose. I am a medium but bought the large. My husband got no bites and the neck/hood was tighter. We were pleased with purchase and will wear again on another trip coming up next month and assess again. Perfect weight for temps. that reached into the low 80’s, was not too hot.

Add a drawstring to hood!This BugsAway Areia Hoody is made with a nice soft, thin fabric. But I do not like that it doesn't have some sort of drawstring to pull the head covering closer to the face... it leaves the sides of your face and your neck exposed to biting insects.

It's a shirtThe hood is nice and tight (don't try to wear over the ear headphones under this). I haven't worn this to anywhere with lots of mosquitoes yet, so efficacy is TBD. I'm 5'4'' and 135 (maybe 140 now) and an XS is slightly too small, though not indecently so. If I were to order again, I would get a S.

Flimsy fabricI purchased this hoody to add to my BugsAway collection. I bought the same style in a darker color and it ran small, but the fabric was fine, so I ordered again in a larger size. The white color is the flimsiest and most see-through fabric possible, what a total disappointment. Even the larger size is way too small for me. It's already packaged back up for return.

Disappointing against skeetersPros:
-Did a wonderful job keeping the sun off me.
-Felt cool and comfortable in hot weather.
-Cute fit and styling.
-Dries super fast when hung up after a wash!
-Not colorfast in the least. I washed this several times before leaving on my trip, and it has still left a permanent blue dye stain on my hiking pants.
-Holds onto stink like nobody's business.
-The real dealbreaker for me: Did not keep away bugs. Didn't even prevent bugs biting through it. I suppose I should've known this about a knit garment, but I was surprised to receive dozens of bites on my torso and zero on my legs, which were covered by a non-treated pair of stretch woven pants. I'm really disappointed in the total lack of protection I received against mosquitos.

Versatile, comfortableI bought this hoodie for a recent trip to East Africa. It was perfect— kept me warm, kept me cool, no bugs, sun protection. It was by far my favorite.

Snug as a bug in a rugThis garment is a snug fit; but that is what you want in an anti-bug shirt as no one wants the insects to be able to get through to bite. The color is a dusty pink and goes with lots of summer colors.

Love this perfect hoodieAbsolutely wonderful hoodie! Fabric feels great. Weight and warmth is a little more than I expected and I like it. Too hot to wear for sun protection at the hottest part of the day. Would probably be perfect for breezy day or night down the shore or on a boat, or plane. Wrinkles fall right out, packs up small.
