The ExOffico BugsAway Cape Hat provides long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection. Permethrin, the active ingredient in Insect Shield?, is invisible, odorless, and tightly bonded to the fabric fibers, and lasts the expected lifetime of the garment (70 washes). It repels mosquitoes (including those carrying West Nile virus and malaria), ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums). The Cape Hat provides sun protection with a UPF 30+ rating, dries quickly, and wicks moisture to keep you cool. Finally, you can stop swatting bugs and start focusing on the adventure. Insect Shield repellent lasts 70 washings.
Whether it's a southwestern river trip or a week in the Amazon, protect yourself from bugs and sunburn with the ExOfficio BugsAway Cape Hat. This versatile cap features a fold-away cape for maximum sun protection, and it has an anti-insect treatment to keep the bugs away.

Packs light. Feels light on my head. Protects from sun and bugs. I bought this for the Wind Rivers where I hear the bugs are as thick as fog... it was true in some areas. You can wear the hat as a regular cap, or pull the neck guard down. Not the most stylish hat, but hey, it did the job.
