When comfort and protection is what you need, these BugsAway quietude pants offer an elastic drawcord waist for a more kick-back feel for day or night. Insect Shield technology helps prevent against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges.
So far they have been tested in my apartment in S Asia where I have a lot of mosquitoes during this season. They seem to work. I haven't had any bites on my legs. I really like the color and they style and fabric. I just think the small is a bit big on me in the hip area. I am a petitie 5'1, 120 pound female. They are baggy on my bottom area. The length works well even though I am short. They cover my entire leg and I don't have to bunch them up on the length or hem them. So if you are taller, they may be shorter on you. I think if they had an XS size it would of fit better. Since I will be wearing in the apt to loung in and occasionally to hike in outdoors I think this fit will work although slightly bigger on me than I would like. So far they have been worth the price.
Here's the problem: mosquitoes flourish in hot humid places like Houston...but these are sweat pants. 5 stars for the fit, the feel, the concept, the timeliness of coming up with a mosquito proof pair of pants that are so comfortable to move around in. It's just that on a hot summer day these pants get really hot fast. I think they'll be perfect in early spring and late fall, but our biggest need is for extremely light weight clothing in the heat of summer when mosquitoes are most prevalent. I do think they are worth buying. I don't think I've had a bite the 4 or 5 times I've worn them. The fabric is light weight compared to most sweat pants, just not quite light enough for hot summers in the south.
Wonderful pants that repel insects! I've been bitten by mosquitos through the fabric of regular pants, but in these I'm fine, no bites at all. They're comfy enough to sleep in, or work out if it's not too hot outside. They're well-designed with two handpockets and a secure zip pocket. Now please make them in black too! I'll buy them in as many colors as I can.
Bought these pants specifically for outdoor wear because I get bitten by bugs and tics constantly. These pants were great in weather temperatures up to 75 degrees (that was the max reached temp in April when I wore them). I wasn't too hot and they have some give to them, so they stretch. I wear a size 8 pants and I got the small and they fit great. Not too tight or too loose. The pockets are big enough to store your iphone. The fabric is not scratchy, but not soft like fleece. I found it comfortable. I ran a 5 mile trail run in them and they worked out great; protected my legs from the mud and bugs.
Keeps mosquitoes from biting! I'm a magnet and swell horribly from mosquitos, but after at least 10 uses, I have not been bitten once through these pants or my 2 shirts from the same company.
Love these! Great for walking on trails or on grass. Not one tick after 2 hours in the woods! Finally able to feel safe going outdoors again after 2.5 challenging years with lyme disease. I am 5 feet 6 1/2 inches tall, 132 pounds, 36 inch hips and the medium fit me perfectly. Inseam is 29 inches which works for this style.
I hesitated ordering these pants, as I usually have so much difficulty with sizing and fit. I was thrilled that they fit perfectly. Now, with the BugsAway shirt and pants, I will be protected in the garden.
I absolutely love these pants but they do run large.
