The ultimate warm weather hunting attire, the Equinox Guard hoody is lightweight and breathable to keep you comfortable while hunting in the spring, early fall, or in southern climates. Of course, one of the biggest downsides to hunting in these conditions is bugs like ticks, mosquitos, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums). Not only are these critters annoying, but some can carry harmful diseases. That’s why the folks at SITKA Gear have come up with their revolutionary Equinox Guard series of clothing. When worn properly and combined with the other clothes in the Equinox Guard lineup, this hoody will not only protect you against these pesky insects but will also give you UPF50+ and help with odor control. This is all possible because of SITKA’s revolutionary textile technology. Their Insect Shield technology tightly binds a proprietary permethrin formula to fabric fibers that will last the lifetime of the apparel. Their Polygiene technology wicks away moisture to keep you dry and permanently neutralizes odors using antimicrobial silver salt (from recycled silver). Most importantly, the Equinox Guard series allows you to not worry about things like sitting in tall grass or setting up near a body of water and lets you focus on the task at hand, your hunt.
