The SITKA Equinox Guard Pant prevents contact with insects in three distinct ways: limited skin exposure, bite-reduction fabric, and built-in Insect Shield. Comfortable and moisture-wicking, especially in hot, humid conditions, the pant is made from a lightweight SITKA-developed fabric that promotes airflow and features zippered leg vents that expel heat when moving fast and zip-up for extra protection. Internal leg gaiters prevent ticks and chiggers from crawling up your legs when worn under socks.

Balancing the need for comfort in hot conditions with preventing contact with insects, tick and chiggers runs a fine line. A lot of existing solutions are bulky, too hot, include DEET or release smell into the environment. The Equinox Guard Glove utilizes mechanical properties to help prevent bites and permethrin built-in for the life of the garment. A specialized high-gauge textile has been both lab and field tested to reduce mosquito bites on the back of the hand where they occur most often while ensuring dexterity. Mapped abrasion resistant textile is used in high wear areas on fingers. Providing a second element of protection, the entire garment is treated with Insect Shield which Repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, biting flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums), and does not require re-application.
