This jacket is wonderful, good for hiking due to allowing a nice breeze and deterring bites. Not so sure if it would work so well for a heavy mosquito area, however works well for moderate bug zones. It is also stylish, comfortable and fits to size. Happy I bought this.

This fits perfectly and works fantastically. I love this jacket and use it when I am out camping or just to keep the bugs off. There are lots of Mosquitos in Virginia and I never get bitten now. Columbia makes great products. This fits true to size and looks great. It is very light weight and thin.

I needed a light jacket for the summer that is not too bulky to carry around throughout the day and this jacket was perfect. It is very light and is perfect for chilly summer nights. I did not but the jacket for the insect blocker but it looks like it works perfectly. The mesh is very small so insects cannot get through the jacket. The size I brought fits true to size and is very stylish.

After reading the other review of surviving bugs in the jungle, I assumed this would work for my running workouts, especially in warmer weather. Now I don't have to put on repellent. Really breathes and is incredibly lightweight. Excellent quality. Highly recommend.

This jacket proved to be an absolute lifesaver on safari. It's mosquito and tse tse fly central right now in Tanzania and Kenya, and you must either slather on bug repellent or wear insect blocker clothing at dawn and at dusk. This can be a nuisance, especially if you are just going to be outside for a short while. As the Serengeti is pretty hot this time of year, and you need to cover your arms, this jacket gives protection without being suffocatingly hot. I brought it with me everywhere. I highly recommend this item, as well as other Columbia insect blocking apparel if you go any place that is swarming with pesky flying creatures.
