Craghoppers’ NosiLife insect-repelling line of adventure gear includes an array of outdoor wear to protect you from bugs, including tops, bottoms, and even a dress. NosiLife’s permethrin-based technology is permanent, non-toxic, non-irritant, and antimicrobial. We recommend the NosiLife Convertible Trousers—lightweight bottoms with UPF 40+ sun protection that are both stylish and functional with zip-off legs for when you get too hot during a hike. The pants have plenty of pockets, including two with zips for securing your keys or wallet. We loved the added bonus of a detachable dry-bag that snaps into the cargo pocket to keep your tech goods secure and dry. ($80,
