As if mosquitoes, blackflies and other flying pests weren’t reason enough, expanding tick populations in many areas make it even more important to protect your lower half, since ticks often latch onto their hosts from close to the ground. With these exceptionally well-made mesh pants, you can keep biting insects at bay without having to use repellent.
Light and unobtrusive, the 100% polyester mesh fabric lets the breeze in while keeping bugs out. Made in the USA from an ultra-fine mesh with 2400 openings per square inch, it provides an effective barrier that even tiny gnats and biting midges can’t penetrate.
The mesh is also surprisingly tough, with a slightly stiff texture that helps it hold its shape, creating space between the mesh and your skin so bugs can’t bite through it, while helping it resist snagging on branches as a softer mesh would. Sturdy elastic accommodates a range of waist sizes, while full-width rib-knit cuffs on the pant legs stretch for a snug but comfortable fit, whether worn over bare legs or over pants and socks.
The small/medium pants are recommended for adults approximately 115 lb to 175 lb (52kg to 79kg), and the large/extra-large pants are for adults approximately 175 lb to 240 lb (79kg to 109kg). They’re intended to fit loosely, so if in doubt, order the larger size. Machine washable.
