Sitka Equinox Guard Hoody

The Equinox Guard Hoody helps prevent contact with insects in three distinct ways: limited skin exposure, bite-reduction fabric and built-in Insect Shield®. Comfortable and moisture-wicking—especially in hot, humid conditions—it’s made from a SITKA-developed ultra-lightweight, breathable, tightly knit stretch fabric that helps prevent mosquito bites. It features a breathable mesh facemask and a long tail that tucks into your pants for maximum chigger/tick protection. Designed for minimal layering. Whether an early season piece or already insulated this garment fits to prevent inefficiencies in heat retention caused by dead space.

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 Hoody is a unique solution that 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 while remaining extremely lightweight, breathable and comfortable when worn in sweltering conditions where insects thrive. 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.
