Columbia Bug Shield

There will be bugs. It will be hot. That’s why Columbia made the Bug Shield mesh jacket. The fabric is bonded to a proprietary form of Permethrin, the stuff found in spray-on repellent, so it’s remarkably effective at warding off mosquitoes and blackflies. It’s also the coolest (and coolest-looking) bug shirt we’ve ever worn.
