Spending summer days and nights out on the lake is the most relaxing way to pass time, but one thing that can really ruin the mood is having to slap away biting bugs. You know there’s repellants like sprays and citronella candles out there, but did you know Dorfman Pacific brand Stetson Cloth Hats & Caps combined with the Burlington Industries No Fly Zone fabric to create a bug repellant hat?
It’s as easy as putting it on your head. No Fly Zone is constructed of nylon fabric protected with permethrin, which is also used on mosquito nets and US military uniforms. Verified to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, chiggers, flies and midges, this hat offers its wearer invisible, odorless protection against harassment.
“Sweating and washing won’t deteriorate the effectiveness of the Permethrin in the hat,” shares Bill Stein, VP of Sales for Dorfman Pacific and head of the company’s Stetson division. “In fact, the hats maintain effective protection even after 70 washings.”
With eight different styles and shapes to pick from, the No Fly Zone hats run from $30 to $45 and are packable and crushable, so you don’t have to baby them. Particularly if you live in an area with growing concern over insect-borne diseases such as the Zika Virus, looking into additional protection options this summer can give you even more peace of mind so you really can enjoy those evenings out on the top deck of your houseboat.
