If your backyards got bugs, put away the stinky and potentially harmful sprays, and pull on the Men's Columbia Bug Shield Shirt. Using Insect Blocker, a synthetic version of the naturally occurring insect repellant found in certain types of chrysanthemums, this mosquito, tick, ant and other biting insect repellant is bonded directly to the shirts fibers. No re-application, or special care is needed, and it retains 90% of its effectiveness after even 70 washings. The shirt also offers Omni-Shade, a UPF 40 sun protection, and Omni-Wick, Columbia's advanced evaporation technology designed to keep you dry, cool and comfortable. Other comfort components include the roll-up sleeves with button tab, venting along the upper yoke, and a handy zip closed security pocket. Toss out the chemicals, and use Mother Nature's genius when you wear the Bug Shield Shirt for men from Columbia.
