Craghoppers NosiLife (Bug Repellent) Shirt £15 + £3.95 p&p

Lightweight and super-comfortable, the NosiLife Shirt makes a great trail partner. The polyamide construction provides day-long moisture management for a fresh feel in the stickiest conditions whilst protecting from insect bites and the suns rays.

Never seen them this cheap before. Normally at least £30. I think this is the basic shirt with no frills and only one pocket but looks like a bargain to me. Postage £3.95.

Also should add that they come with a lifetime guarantee if bought direct from Craghoppers website, which this is.

Can vouch for the Nosilife feature, kept me bug free where covered when in the hot humid north of Guatemala.

On exposed area's it was lashings of bug spray over Factor 5Squillion....

These are my favourite walking shirts, especially in warm conditions. Good price too, Sizing fairly accurate - M if you're a 40" chest.

Couldn't get the HAPPY10 code to work. I think it said it was only for accesories.

Gift10 is for accessories only

Brought the brown version when it was £6 something, easily the best value shirt I ever brought even better than my 97p primark shirt. This is well made, very tough an durable yet being very soft and mosquito repellent.

At this price it is a little dear but still worth it, have some heat

HAPPY10 worked for me. 2 pairs Nosilfe trousers for work, £27.

Not another bug hunt...

Do these shirts have the double collars?

is it the fabric that makes the shirt bug-resistant or is it impregnated with anti-bug stuff?

As far as I'm aware they all do. I bought a basic Craghoppers shirt about 5 years ago, cheapest in the range and that had the collar that will cover the back of your neck completely when folded open so I'd guess this one does, but can't say 100%.

Oh yes they do. I've had them bite me through thick denim shirts and even watched one doing it to a mate of mine wearing denim.

That's quite interesting - thanks for sharing. The article does state thin clothing but think that's a given anyway. Still think this clothing is quite gimmicky. And I say that as I'm actually from Malaysia and lived in a house where mosquitos were a real problem because we lived near large areas of bushes and grass where water could collect - only uncovered areas were ever bitten.

I think it may be subjective. There are some people that are absolutely irresistible to mosquitoes (me) so for them any area not protected with deet or otherwise is a viable target. If you think about it, bigger mozzies will have a longer proboscis capable of penetrating all but the tightest weave if they're determined to find a way through.

I do think the NosiLife gear has some merit though, as it's very thin so you can wear it in the heat and it does have repellent properties as shown last weekend where I managed to stay bite free wearing NosiLife shirt and trousers yet my wife was bitten through her clothing. Only anecdotal obviously but it's rare for me to escape bite free at times when she's been bitten.

It's the ones that say "Solar Shield" that have the double collars. It's always marked just under the Craghoppers Branding so you can normally notice it from any website pictures if they don't list it as a "feature".
