When news of the Zika Virus started trickling in from Brazil and Mexico, we started looking for lightweight mosquito repellent clothing. We wanted to find something that was comfortable, breathable, insecticide-free, and attractive to wear on vacation and for other outdoor activities. After a lot of searching, we couldn’t find what we were looking for! The only options we could find were in olive green or camouflage and they were very stiff and scratchy. The items available were in men’s sizes and were made specifically for hunters.
So, we decided to build a few products just for women to help repel mosquitoes and ticks while on the go. After months of drawing out ideas, cutting and sewing, and looking for the right materials – the Mozzie line was born!
We are regularly working on making our Mozzie Jackets better. Every Spring we come out with a new colors, designs and options. The 2018 Mozzie Jacket is made of a very lightweight no-see-um grade mesh. We tried to keep in mind that where there are mosquitoes and ticks, there’s also heat and humidity! So, this jacket was made to be breathable and comfortable even when you don’t want to add layers. They work great with a t-shirt underneath! This jacket also gets super soft when you wash it. The lightweight material makes these jackets easy to pack or throw in your purse too!
Mozzie jackets are made to be a comfortable, attractive, and lightweight option for women who garden, hike, fish, golf, dodge flying bugs at the kids’ soccer or baseball game, or just to want something to wear while walking the dog or sitting on the porch on a summer evening.
