Let me say first off; we didnít get paid by the manufacturer to produce this video, itís just a simple gear review. We produce these reviews merely to show our camping and paddling friends whatís out there on the market.
I can tolerate bugs pretty well when weíre out in the bush but Merri has always had a problem with them, up till now. Sheís been using this bug shirt for the past year and itís made a huge difference. She is so impressed with it that she wanted to produce this short video showing close-ups of its features.

The Elite Original Bug Shirt is also made in cotton for hot climates.
Nylon or cotton|

I would think the nylon would be cooler than cotton in hot weather? Lucky we had so few bugs this past summer I didnt need to buy one of these. I cant tolerate DEET. Massive headache with that stuff for me. The Lemon bug repel stuff only works so so.

nylon is a sauna in hot weather. Its no accident that clothing stores in South Florida have what look like nylon shirts, but these shirts actually have a high percent of cotton. Plus with the cotton bug shirt if you get hot, you can wet it down and still have bug protection.
2nd that Nylon no no for Hot Weather|

Ticks are bad, bad, bad. Vectors of many diseases, which I have gotten twice.

no need to wear anything underneath. Its fairly comfy then even when wearing a pack. The mesh does not bite in.
I love my OBS.|

One of the best pieces of gear I have. Highly recommended. I prefer it over all mesh jackets. You can wear the OBS all by itself when warm and it is very comfortable against the skin. Mine has been used a lot on long trips and it is still like new.
