        Comments about White Sierra Mens Swamp Insect Shield Long-Sleeve Tee:

        I live in South Florida, which in the summer time is sunny, wet, ninety + degrees, steamy, and humid all at the same time. Due to the large amount of rain that Florida receives in the summer, the mosquitos naturally flourish.

        Public spraying does keep them under control in the urban areas, but some still sneak by the spray, and happily seek out humans for a tasty meal. Once one ventures out of the urban areas the mosquitos become much more prevalent and aggressive, as many will attest.

        Due to my previous encounters with mosquitos, that were only kept at bay with the use of repellent sprays, I have considered the use of Permetherin spray to treat my clothing, however I decided to try the type of clothing that is already factory treated to repel mosquitos first.

        I purchased and received the White Sierra Mens Swamp Insect Shield Long-Sleeve Tee Shirt recently. For my first test I wore it when going to the store, or just walking around.

        The shirt was comfortable and wicked the perspiration well off my skin, without retaining any dampness in the fabric. I purchased a white color, so the extra bonus was that it reflects a large amount of sunlight. The long sleeves also work well to give you sun and additional Ultra Violet light protection, thereby eliminating the need for sun protection lotion.

        My second test was a four hour hike at a nearby state park, where I had always encountered the insidious, and aggressive salt march mosquitos that thrive in the brackish water of the mangrove forests.

        During previous hikes I always had to break out my picaridin based mosquito repellent, (I do not use DEET if I can avoid it), when the cute little yellow plant based mosquito repellent wrist band that promised to repel mosquitos, failed me miserably!

        The White Sierra Swamp shirt performed well, and I did not experience any bites, or landings on my body, though I did hear one or two whining buzzes, however the mosquitos decided that they did not like my scent, and left quickly.

        I was also impressed with how well the 60/40 Cotton/Polyester fabric wicked the moisture off of my skin. I did get a bit damp after several hours, however the shirt dried quickly after I stopped my aerobic activities.

        Please note that I was hiking with a backpack in 90 degree plus temperatures with very high humidity, and intense sun when not in the wooded areas.

        If you are looking for a good general purpose shirt that wicks well, and definitely repels mosquitos, then this shirt should be on your list.

        I will probably add a hat and possibly some pants that are insect shield treated in the future, but for my test hike, I did not seem to need them.

        The harshest test will be when I hike out in the Big Cypress Preserve, or Everglades National Park.

        I also wish that I had this shirt when I was in Alaska few summers ago as the summertime mosquitos, and black flies are fierce.

        I have washed this shirt twice now, and it comes out clean, as with any normal tee shirt. It is supposed to be good for 70 washings, so if you wore and washed the shirt every week, it would purportedly repel mosquitos for about a year and a half.

        I guess that you could still wear it as a regular shirt, or treat it with Permetherin to renew the protection for a few washings and wearings.

        Obviously the less you wash and wear it, the longer it will purportedly last.

        So yes, to sum it all up... I would recommend this shirt to anyone seeking to avoid mosquitos, with the added bonus of a shirt that wicks perspiration, and protects one from the sun.
