The Equinox Guard Glove helps prevent contact with insects in three distinct ways: limited skin exposure, bite-reduction fabric and built-in Insect Shield®. Ultra-lightweight, breathable, tightly knit fabric and Insect Shield offer maximum protection and coverage. Nylon Cordura® built into fingertips and between fingers provides durability in all the right places and AX Suede palm ensures long life. Long cuff offers full protection when worn with the Equinox Guard Hoody. Designed to accommodate layering for more versatility from early to late season climates.
Why It Was Made
Balancing the need for comfort in hot conditions with preventing contact with insects, tick and chiggers runs a fine line. A lot of existing solutions are bulky, too hot, include DEET or release smell into the environment. The Equinox Guard Glove utilizes mechanical properties to help prevent bites and permethrin built-in for the life of the garment. A specialized high-gauge textile has been both lab and field tested to reduce mosquito bites on the back of the hand where they occur most often while ensuring dexterity. Mapped abrasion resistant textile is used in high wear areas on fingers. Providing a second element of protection, the entire garment is treated with Insect Shield which Repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, biting flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums), and does not require re-application.
