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."
