Product Details

Description
The BugsAway Damselfly Jacket, featuring Insect Shield® technology, is packable bug protection. This lightweight jacket stuffs into its own security zip pocket. Reinforced shoulders hold up under straps, and the hood keeps insects away from your ears and face. Permethrin, the active ingredient in Insect Shield, is invisible, odorless, and so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers that it retains effective repellency through the life of the garment. It repels mosquitoes (including those carrying West Nile virus and malaria), ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums). Insect Shield repellent lasts 70 washings. Do not dry clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for any moment This is a mostly mesh jacket with fabric panels.(The model is wearing a long-sleeve white blouse underneath). The cut and fit, however, is surprisingly flattering. I traveled in South America with this and wore in town as well as hiking. The weight is so light I pretty much kept it in my bag at all times ready for any moment I needed it. The mesh is soft and breathes well; perfect for summer. I purchased on the larger side so I could throw over other tops but I would re-order true to size to enjoy a more "tailored" fit. Sleeves a little too long for me in the larger size. Looking forward to having this handy at the beach as well - buggy in New England!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mosquitoes bite through mesh Seems to work ok when there aren't a lot of bugs, but I found a tick walking down the sleeve (not dropping off, as I expected) and the mosquitoes bit me through the mesh. I was hoping to wear it with a tee shirt underneath so it would be cool, but I'll probably just go back to wearing a long-sleeved shirt instead of your jacket. The hood did a good job protecting my neck and ears since the fabric doesn't touch my skin in most of that area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two Suggestions I wore this jacket in the arctic where I was inundated with aggressive mosquitoes and the jacket worked!! However, I have two suggestions to the next model: (1) lengthen the sleeves and add thumb loops to prevent getting bit on the back of the hands, and (2) put in a drawstring around the hood to protect your neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket Bought this jacket as a prophylactic for a trip to Africa next month. Tried it out on a birding trip to Spencer Island (Everett, WA). There was a major mosquito hatch while I was there, but so help me, the swarms avoided me and attacked my friends. That made me a believer. We'll see if I have the same story after the Africa trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and functional ! I spend summers working in the Arctic. I hate the usual bug jackets that pull on over your head so I bought the Ex Officio Damselfly. I love it ! Those nasty mosquitoes don't land on me at all. AND they stay away from my facial area when the hood is up. I've had numerous compliments on the style. Fits true to size. I want everyone to get one of these jackets. Great, great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bugs do stay away. I am always getting bit by mosquitos when I go out in the mornings and evenings. This jacket is lightweight and cool and does keep the bugs from biting. Do not use it for warmth as it is weather neutral - it will neither keep you warm nor cool. I don it to go out to get the newspaper in the morning and to go out at dusk in the garden or on a walk. So far, so good, and I do hear the mosquitos buzzing around me but no bites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from protection in the summer I purchased two of these myself and a set for my kids who live in Northern Wisconsin where the ticks and Mosquitoes have taken up residence with rainy spring and fall. I have walked 900 miles in this jacket along with others who did not have protection or used only deet spray coverage. They were swarmed and left the trail halfway and I was able to finish with no bother. I use a face net along with this at times for all over protection. In hot summer hikes in the 80s will wear just a sports bra or a shell and remain cool as the fabric is a mesh and lets air pass. Also use in layering for a light fall cover over shirts in the cooler fall. My best Ice Age Trail equipment. 5 others in my hiking group have also purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super useful This is a great light jacket, I am so happy to be able to wear this in full sun and not melt away. Deducted one star, because not overly happy with the colour choices and secondly, it is cut a little large. As this is a thin mesh jacket, there would be little point wearing it over many thick layers. For wearing it over a t-shirt or a base layer, it could be sized a little tighter.
