What the Media Says


“Yes, the hooded bug shirts you see in canoeing magazines (the Original Bug Shirt, still the industry standard, can be ordered by calling 800-998-9096 or online at www.bugshirt.com), with their fine mesh face masks, will make you look like an astronaut from a ’50s sci-fi flick. So what? You’ll be catching small mouths while your companions run screaming into the boonies.”

Keith McCafferty, Field and Stream, Page 74, July 2002


“Effective bugproof clothing can make living with insect hordes a lot more bearable. The Original Bug Shirt Company . . . manufactures the design I like best.”

Jerome E. Robinson, Field and Stream, June 1996


“Anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors during the bug season – …gardening, farming, hiking, yard cleaning and tree planting – will like it.”

Harrowsmith, June 1992


“Tired of using chemicals to ward off hungry bands of insects? Made for adults and kids, this shirt is constructed of a tightly woven fabric impenetrable to mosquitoes that’s bridged with panels of a polyester no-see-um mesh for ventilation. The mesh is designed to hang away from the body and be zipped away at the face. I remember one long night in a malarial jungle in Laos when I would have traded anything for this shirt.”

Kevin Vallely, Outpost, Annual 2006


” . . . reclaim your favorite bit of back country from the winged nemesis.”

Backpacker – Gear, May 1992
