From my understanding its a treatment for clothes only. You can buy the spray and coat your own clothes as well. I know the military uses it and its also used on farm animals I think. Its one of the repellants you cannot apply to skin like deet. It has to be applied to clothes and let dry. Even target and walmart sell permethrin.

I'm really intrigued by the "BugsAway" jackets. I have never heard of mosquito-repellent clothing before. Curious to hear from anyone who has tried it out. A quick Google search says permethrin is an insecticide, not a repellent. Anybody know whether these things work?

It's the only thing that really works on ticks. It kills them. Mind you, I don't know if the treatment in this clothing works or not.

I believe the treatment they use is permithrin. You can buy it as well in spray bottle form to coat your own gear. It holds up to a number of washes.

I have treated my own gear with permethrin before traveling to tropical areas with lots of insects. never needed to apply any other repellent to my skin, and never got bit once. treatment lasts about 6 washes before you should re apply. permethrin does not harm your clothing like DEET.

While I don't have experience with this clothing, I use permetherin on my hiking clothes and my kids shoes. Search around, even just spraying your shoes helps significantly.

I was interested too and then I saw that it lasts 70 washes, on the product description. I guess that's reasonable considering you don't usually wash jackets regularly. However, If you do wear this often that 70 washes will go quickly!! (and I'm sure somebody is generous)... I'm sure it's a nice jacket, but I've decided I'll save that money for something else and a bottle of spray-on repellent

I think that 70 wash number is just marketing, the chemical can be degraded by sunlight/UV which is the main reason requiring reapplication and not really because of washing.

I had a set of ex officio clothes for my son when he was little. We would go to Yosemite every year and he would get bitten alive. The first year we took him it look like he had the measles. The following year he had the bugs away clothes, nice lightweight long sleeve shirt, long pants, socks and hat. He was hardly bitten that year and the next wearing the clothes. I would buy it again but as a teenager he doesn't smell so attractive anymore.

I own a Cabela's long sleeve shirt and pants that feature insect defense. They work ridiculously well.

Never heard of this brand but I bought the Lagoa waterproof jacket because I liked the style. Anyone have experience with it?

Thanks.. I'll look into that.

Here in South Florida, mosquitoes and other bugs are a big problem around sunset. I'm not likely to buy a new "BugsAway"wardrobe from ExOfficio, but being able to treat my existing stuff is appealing.

Something like this spray? "Ben's Clothing and Gear Insect Repellent Pump Spray Bottle, 24-oz" for $16 [amazon.com]
