High UV Insect Shield Buff

By Magnus Angus

"Exceptionally useful if you will be spending a day on a tropical flat where sunburn is all but inevitable."

High UV protection and treated to ward off insects.
High UV protection and treated to ward off insects.

This Buff does offer high UV protection with the added attraction of Insect Shield, which wards off mosquitoes, ticks, midgies among others. Insect Shield is branded form of insect repellent technology which is applied to clothing of all sorts. The active ingredient is permethrin, odourless and invisible, which bonds to the fabric and should last the life of the garment – in this case the Buff.

Wear this version as a normal Buff, a tube of elasticated fabric, use it as a face mask, a head cover and pull it up over your hat to prevent it blowing off.

Exceptionally useful if you will be spending a day on a tropical flat where sunburn is all but inevitable. I found that once I had one I wore it whenever I was fishing in sun.
