Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two Suggestions I wore this jacket in the arctic where I was inundated with aggressive mosquitoes and the jacket worked!! However, I have two suggestions to the next model: (1) lengthen the sleeves and add thumb loops to prevent getting bit on the back of the hands, and (2) put in a drawstring around the hood to protect your neck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mosquitoes bite through mesh Seems to work ok when there aren't a lot of bugs, but I found a tick walking down the sleeve (not dropping off, as I expected) and the mosquitoes bit me through the mesh. I was hoping to wear it with a tee shirt underneath so it would be cool, but I'll probably just go back to wearing a long-sleeved shirt instead of your jacket. The hood did a good job protecting my neck and ears since the fabric doesn't touch my skin in most of that area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bugs do stay away. I am always getting bit by mosquitos when I go out in the mornings and evenings. This jacket is lightweight and cool and does keep the bugs from biting. Do not use it for warmth as it is weather neutral - it will neither keep you warm nor cool. I don it to go out to get the newspaper in the morning and to go out at dusk in the garden or on a walk. So far, so good, and I do hear the mosquitos buzzing around me but no bites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Works! My husband calls me a bug magnet. Sending me out first and seeing how many blood-sucking bugs find me in under a minute usually gets a big count. With BugAway I have not had any bites! AWESOME!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from howtofoldintopacket?? This jacket is great at what it does .. keep away mosquitos. It is a bit warm in my hot, humid climate. I wear it anyway. Wish there were instructions on folding it into its pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket Bought this jacket as a prophylactic for a trip to Africa next month. Tried it out on a birding trip to Spencer Island (Everett, WA). There was a major mosquito hatch while I was there, but so help me, the swarms avoided me and attacked my friends. That made me a believer. We'll see if I have the same story after the Africa trip.
