Product Information

p>Features that make this the ideal pair of trousers for your travels: • Proven in independent tests by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) Pesticide Trial Section to effectively repel insects. Please click here to view the test results. We know of no other manufacturer willing to publish their results.
• The majority of insect repellent garments on the market today have very poor wicking as it usually conflicts with the insect repellent finish on fabric. And so while your garment may keep insects away, without wicking the shirt will not keep you cool. We tested our BUGTech against our MaraTech range which is highly effective at wicking moisture away from your skin. Please click here to view the test results. • 100% Rufiji MaraTech RipStop Fabric. Quickly releases wrinkling caused by packing. Ripstop give the fabric extra strength. • Moisture Wicking: Moves perspiration away from skin and promotes quick evaporation for dryness and comfort • Zip-Off trousers: This zip-off system ensure maximum flexibility and convenience. Trousers when cold or to protect your children from the sun, shorts for walking or when it gets too hot. It is also a good idea to wear trousers at times when walking to protect your child from ticks in the grass. • Pockets: 2 hand pockets and 2 cargo pockets. • QuickDry: These trousers will wash and dry very quickly - especially in the dry heat of Africa. • UPF30: This clothing protects you by blocking harmful sun exposure. Your safety increases with the UPF. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a rating of UPF 30 or higher.

Product Review

In a nutshell we did not want to jump onto the insect repellent clothing bandwagon without first being 100% certain that you as our clients were receiving a shirt which actually worked. We were most concerned about the following: • That we developed the best possible insect repellent finish and had it tested independently to ensure that it actually worked; • That in the evolution from MaraTech to BUGTech fabric, the high level of wicking of our MaraTech fabric was not lost or hindered in anyway. The problem with most other insect repellent brands of clothing is that the wicking effect is retarded by the addition of the insect repellent finish. In effect you end up wearing a plastic bag. • Many other brands forego this testing and rely on massive marketing campaigns to sell their garments. In developing the BUGTech fabric we were guided by our new mantra for our Rufiji clothing range: "No Marketing Hype. Just the Facts."
