I’ve been taking a bit of an interest in Insect Shield clothing of late…… 😝
I know you can treat your favourite stuff with permethrin, and I’m quite happy to do that, but I thought I’d see what I could find that’s already pre-treated, just out of interest.
For years now I’ve been using Rohan Trailblazers for most of my walking, and they come pre-treated with Insect Shield, so that’s great. I did buy myself a couple of pairs of rather nice Arc’teryx ones last summer though, so I will have to do those myself.
I was particularly interested though in stuff for sleeping in. When camping, I always wear leggings, a hooded baselayer and some light weight socks. To my surprise, I’ve been able to replace all these with pre-treated clothes, none of which weigh any more than the ones I normally use.
The socks and the leggings come from the Craghoppers Nosilife range:
And the hooded top from an American brand – Simms – who specialise in fishing gear:
Incidentally, Simms do make a women’s version of this top too, but men’s tops generally fit me better.
It’s amazing how useful the Internet can be!
