  I have had one of these

I bought the nylon model Bug Shirt shown in the review about four or five years ago at Canoecopia.

I find that the nylon can be pretty warm which prevents me from using it as much as I thought I would, yet I DO use it and would probably buy another one (maybe the cotton one) if I lost mine. My girlfriend likes it a lot too as she hates deet.

I wish it had another mesh panel in the back at least.

The hood on it is a fantastic design and has really well thought out features.

I find that I use it THE MOST for taking the dog for a walk at night when we are at our cottage in Northern Wi, in a wooed area right on Green Bay.
The skeets and ticks can be really bad, and being able to toss this thing on at night instead of having to spray down can be a godsend.
This past summer was so dry here that the bugs bever got very bad. I don't think I even wore the shirt, but my girlfriend did a number of times. Other summers it has seen near daily use.
