About BugsAway®:
BugsAway® apparel is treated with Insect Shield®, giving you invisible, odorless protection just by putting on your clothes. The treatment is bound to fabric fibers, so it stays in your clothes—not on your skin—and lasts through 70 washes. Ants, flies, chiggers and midges can't stand it, and neither can ticks and mosquitoes, those pesky carriers of many insect-borne diseases. Exofficio's Insect Shield uses Permethrin to provide long-lasting effective, and convenient bug protection.

Love that this is insect-proof and fashionable too. I am a nut about comfort, but want up-to-date styling as well. Even though I look good in button-down shirts as well as knits, I always prefer knits for comfort. And the styling on this is a welcome change from the ubiquitous button-down, sun-shield, insect-shield type shirts out there. The light mesh fabric on this is good for warm weather. The sleeves are plenty long enough for my long-ish arms. Cover my hands if I pull them down. The torso covers my rear enough to be be flattering (I'm long in the torso), and most importantly, it is well shaped and not too baggy at the hips -- or anywhere for that matter. I have a straight-ish slender figure (5'-7", 110lb., 33"-26"-33") with broad shoulders. Size small fit perfectly. Love the v-neck (I hate tight stuff around my neck) and the kangaroo pocket. The hood is big enough to be useful if you need it. Just about perfect! Some more colors (heathered?) would be nice. The bugs aren't out in full force here yet, so I can't comment on the Insect Shield effectiveness, but based on past Ex Officio products I've owned, I assume it will do the job.

I was so excited when I bought this shirt as it met almost all of the criteria I was looking for in one shirt, including being lightweight and quick drying. I planned to wear it for outdoor activities in the Caribbean and Belize. It is pricey for something that is so casual and limited in its use. (It can't be dressed up to use in town or for the evening, and I pack light (carry-on only) with multi-function clothing. The main problem? Some kind of stain got on it the first time I wore it (source unknown- not food) and it will not come off, regardless of any stain-treatment methods I have tried. I can't wear it in public, it's so bad. Typically, Ex Officio clothing has excellent stain resistance, which makes it perfect for the kind of traveling I do.

Good but flawed design gap

By J from Chicago

from Undisclosed

Comments about Exofficio Womens BugsAway Lumen Hoodie:

I used this hoody to keep mosquitoes and other bugs away during a recent August trip to the Costa Rican rainforest. It seemed to work well in that regard, but there is one key design flaw: The women's version of this hoody has a somewhat deep V-neck that cannot be cinched up completely, leaving that area of your chest and neck exposed if you do not wear a shirt underneath--a potential deal breaker for women who want to get the maximum protection from mosquitoes carrying Zika and other diseases. What's puzzling is that the V-neck seems like a unnecessary concession to "style" for something intended almost entirely to be a functional garment. (The men's version, which I also bought for my husband and son, has a more protective crew neck.) With more and more women needing as much protection as possible from Zika- and other disease-bearing mosquitoes, I would strongly urge ExOfficio to fix this design flaw in an otherwise good product.

I bought the small and it's pretty baggy on me. I usually wear a size 4, so next time, I'd go to XS

        Comments about Exofficio Womens BugsAway Lumen Hoodie:

        Well, it's a bit unfair to review the bug repellency of the product since there were way fewer mosquitoes than I expected where I went, but the hoodie was great in every other way. I was looking for a lightweight long sleeve option for a warm climate and it was very nice in this respect. No odd smells, soft fabric and true to size. I didn't get bitten with it on, but I can't vouch for its effectiveness in a swarm.

          Comments about Exofficio Womens BugsAway Lumen Hoodie:

          I purchased this in white and used it on the amazon where it was very effective against mosquitos. My problem is that two small areas where my life jacket rubbed on it - caused a discoloration that will not come out. So essentially I have to toss this because of the stains. I wish this wouldn't have happened but will buy another one just not in white.

              I wore this recently on bush drives in South Africa. It worked well as mosquitos didn't come near me. As it was very hot (in the upper 90s), I could wear it only on the early morning drives. I had to wear something lighter for the afternoon drives.

                  I sometimes have extreme reactions to bug bites so protection is important to me. Last time I hiked Kalalau Trail in Kauai I was completely covered but suffered from heat exhaustion because my clothes didn't breathe but the Lumen hoodie provided protection and ventilation making this year's hike much better - no bites and no almost passing out!

                      Wow, there's a color to suit everyone's taste. I have quite a few of these, so I can mix and match with all my Exo outfits. The hoodys seem to have a little looser fit than the crew shirts do, and are a little more comfortable. I have found that the bees don't swarm around me as much when I wear these Even, tho bees are not on the list of insects repelled by these, it's still a happy result!

                          The mesh makes it see-through, so I wear with a tank underneath. But it's adorable, and keeps the critters away. I love how easy it is, and despite being in a hot and humid climate, it was still comfortable because it breathes. Highly recommend. Just be aware that you need a tank.

                          We have acreage & horses, goats, plenty of bugs. I have nearly all the bugsaway line, sans a few of the pants. I don't like spraying myself down with insecticide but can always remember to put on an EXO garment. Even the deer flies are reluctant to bite - they still circle around - but bite they do not.
