Women's Insect Blocker™ Mesh Jacket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insect Blocker Jacket I take walks with my dogs regularly in a forest preserve. This year has been extremely buggy because of the amount of rain that we had in the spring and early summer. I was getting bitten by mosquitoes, even with heavy duty bug spray. Since I have worn this jacket, the bites have stopped. The jacket is lightweight, and I find it to be warm on humid days. It is still better than coming home with welts on my skin from the mosquitoes. I would recommend this jacket ! It has made my spring/summer more bearable !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hate Mosquitos! Just purchased the jacket but haven't yet worn it. I did, however, wear my sister's (in Michigan's UP in the woods) and it worked great. I usually wear a small, hers was a medium & it fit well (just enough room underneath for layering). Love that it's light weight and that the fabric is breathable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works I bought a size L and I am 5'9" and 135 pounds. I like that the sleeves are long enough and I can even pull my hands inside the sleeves to protect them from bug bites. The jacket is lightweight which is great when it is hot. The zipper goes already to the top of the neck which adds more protection if you want. If it is chilly, I can layer a snug sweatshirt under it. Mosquitoes LOVE me and I have not been bit through this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tick free! After reading about the increase in tick activity due to climate change, I decided a bug blocker was a good investment. And the flying insects are repelled as well. It's fun to see them hover over your jacket, then decide to go visit someone else in the area! My only issue is that due to the nylon content, the pits get pretty strong after a hot day. But that didn't stop me from getting one of these for my man and another one, in a larger size, for myself when I have extra layers. The small is perfect over just a sports bra. The breeze can get through but not the bugs. I'm 5'9" and 135 #.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've been on the fence about buying a bug jacket for awhile but I finally pulled the trigger and I couldn't be happier! I'm the type that gets bit first in a group of people and when I went to the river the other day, they stayed away from me and went to everyone else! Hooray! I'm 5'7", 145 lbs and the size medium fit great over my tank top. If I were to wear anything bulky underneath it I would probably go up to a large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No bugs! Louisiana is famous for its food and its bugs. This jacket really helps with the bugs! It is light and doesn't make me overheat. Love it! If you plan to wear it over anything bulky, go up one size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate Satisfaction... I am a bug magnet and get very frustrated when I step outside and I am swarmed by mosquitoes in a matter of seconds.Put on this jacket and was wowed by how well it worked right away. Been outside grilling and gardening and pleasantly surprised at this jacket. Looks great with shorts or jeans .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I bought this jacket for my upcoming trip to the Amazon jungle. I am normally a size XS, but purchased a S as I want it to be loose fitting. It fits as how I hoped. I have the coral colour which is vibrant. Very lightweight and I expect it to keep me cool in the jungle. Looking forward to wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely bug proof I went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic for 2 weeks. Everyone on the team got lots of really bad bug bites but I did not get any becuase of this jacket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insect repelant jacket I like the jacket a lot although it does have a smell. I believe that is the insect blocker so I'm not complaining. I like the color and light weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insect Repelling Jacket The jacket does a very nice job of keeping away insects in the evening. It has worked wonderful when we have gone camping. I would recommend pants or shorts of similar material to go along with the jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this jacket The previous reviews for this jacket were great, and is what made me buy it. However, I ordered a small in the mirage color (since a previous review said it ran slightly big) and I am literally floating in it! (I am 5'1 and 115 lbs). I am upset b/c now the XSs are out of stock :( This jacket is super lightweight and opaque (you can see through it) so would be great for summer weather to protect yourself against mosquitos or any other biting insect. May just keep it b/c I was so excited about this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more bug spray I love this light zip up jacket. Great on a warm day when bugs are out but you don't want something to make you hotter. The insects stay away. I just need to be careful going throught the brush and trees so I don't tear the mesh but so far it has seemed pretty tough and still looks great. I'm 5'8" 150 lbs and I ordered a large which fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! I am a skeeter magnet and have tried everything imaginable to avoid getting eaten up anytime I head outdoors during bug season and at the same time not cover my skin in deet. This jacket does the trick and does it well, better than some clip on fan that I used to think was the best new option in the last few years. I was pleasantly surprised the coat is a super lightweight mesh so wearing it in the sun does not get too hot. It has a slight odor but it is only noticible when shut in the closet or my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jacket I bought this jacket along with the insect blocker long sleeve shirt and 1/2 zip for a trip to the Bolivian amazon. This jacket was amazing! It kept all the bugs away from my upper body, the only time I got bites was when I wasn't wearing the insect blocker products. I would definitely recommend the insect blocker line to anyone going anywhere there will be biting bugs!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mosquito Jacket I sent this back. A mosquito jacket needs to be loose to keep the bugs away. I'd ordered it for a trip into malaria country. I ordered it for the color and general style but when I received it I found it to be way too snug to be effective at keeping insects away from my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light weight, comfortable... no bug bites! Have not worn this garment extensively yet, but used it for a 1-week trip out of the country in early July in an area which I always get chewed up by mosquitos... this time no bug bites. Fit is great and color scheme appealing. Had many friends and family approach me with great interest in the product; some who have already gone ahead and purchased their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does the job As a mosquito magnet, I was looking for something relatively cool to deter bugs off during evening walks when sun protection isn't necessary. This is doing the job and it has a hood to keep bugs off the neck and head. Although we do have biting bugs here in southern AZ during the monsoon season, it's not as bad as other more notorious places so I've not given it the ultimate test. It's nicely ventilated, fits well, and is even attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I wore this jacket on a 5 day trip in the wind river mtns. I was not bitten one time! I wish the jacket had fold under hand mitts and full face coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bug Shield Mesh Jacket Living in Florida fighting biting insects is critical, especially mosquitoes this time of year. Bought for our daughter, tested on the 4th of July watching fireworks next to a fresh water lake and no bites!!! She is usually the magnet for them so now I may need to buy them for the rest of the family. The quality of the seaming and style is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I was a little concerned this jacket would be too flimsy for hiking and camping, but it is very well constructed and the mesh is actually quite strong. I have worn it several times in woody brushy conditions and have yet to snag it. Also, I have not been bitten anywhere the jacket covers, which is great since I am a bug magnet and often get bites even when no one else does. I was bitten, however, on my thumb not far from the cuff, so you will still have to use bug repellant on bare skin. I am still happy not to have to use as much of it as I used to though, and still be cool. The hood is a great feature, no bugs buzzing around your ears! I love the fit and styling and feel like I could wear it most anywhere, just wish it didn't cost so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight insect protection We live out in the woods and in the summer the bugs can be problem especially since I am allergic to deer flies and even have problem with mosquito bites. Bugs don''t come near me when I'm wearing this even when I am walking the dog. The mesh is great and I'll be able to wear it no matter how hot it gets. Love the bright colors for visibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bug Shield Mesh Jacket I have not had the opportunity to wear this item as of yet, but can't wait. Size small is a perfect fit, I"m 5"4 and 125 . Also way cute too! The two colors are great together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps bugs at bay I have worn this jacket several times now and it is excellent. I can go walking in areas I never could before. The best part is how it keeps bugs away from my face. I don't have to use any type of repellent and it is very cooling. I can finally wear short sleeve tops (underneath the jacket) and not get one bug bit while doing so. It is actually very attractive on too.
