Bug Protection from Somewhere to Nowhere

Whether you're going somewhere or nowhere, ExOfficio's expanded BugsAway® line for Spring 2015, featuring Insect Shield® technology, will keep you protected and comfortable. Classic styling paired with built-in repellent means you don't have to double pack. Simply pick an outfit and you are prepared for anything, from a stroll through a buggy park, to dinner out on the veranda. Wherever you roam (even if it's in the middle of nowhere), ExOfficio BugsAway travel apparel has got you covered.

ExOfficio was one of the first brands to introduce EPA-registered Insect Shield Repellent Apparel to the U.S. in 2004. The Insect Shield process binds a proprietary permethrin formula tightly to fabric fibers—resulting in effective, odorless insect protection. It effectively repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges and lasts through 70 washings.

ExOfficio's BugsAway collection for men and women ranges from casual to technical; from dresses, skirts, shorts, pants, blouses, shirts, and jackets to hats, socks, bandanas, wraps, and neck gaiters. 

The more technical, high performance pieces are designed to go anywhere and do just about anything.  They offer the best combination of features, such as roll-up tab sleeves, UPF sun protection, ventilation, wicking and quick-drying fabrics and more which make them the ideal choice when the bugs are at their worst. 

The casual styles offer a combination of versatility and functionality so that you don't have to double-pack. They're functional enough for a vigorous walk, yet fashionable and comfortable for globetrotting, car camping or an evening out on the veranda. 

Styles in the BugsAway collection range in price from $15-$100.

Some highlights from the new collection include:

Lightweight and quick-drying, it can be worn as a halter, a strapless dress, or even folded over as a skirt. Combined with built-in 30+ UPF sun protection, it’s the perfect piece to last an entire trip, from strolls in the park to twilight dinners. MSRP $65. Wrap sold separately MSRP $35.

The comfortable cotton blend breathes and dries quickly for easy care. Raglan sleeves with banded cuff and scoop neckline adds feminine style, and side ties let you customize the length for different outfits. MSRP $65.

A lightweight mesh weave adds a light layer to provide warmth in a cool breeze, while allowing ample airflow. A hood and thumb loops cover head and hands when the bugs get bad. Available in a wide variety of colors for men and women. MSRP $60.

A basic natural fiber blended BugsAway pant, in a modern relaxed fit with articulated knees for movement and simple masculine styling. Combined with built-in 30+ UPF sun protection, this is an ideal casual pant that can be worn in the backyard barbecuing or at camp when the bugs are at their worst. MSRP $90.

A handsome woven shirt offered in a relaxed fit with simple masculine styling. The comfortable cotton blend breathes and dries quickly for easy care. Available in three solid and three plaid colors. MSRP $85.
