Technology

Insect Shield

Why We Made This

Balancing the need for comfort in hot conditions with preventing contact with insects, tick and chiggers runs a fine line. A lot of existing solutions are bulky, too hot, include DEET or release smell into the environment. The Equinox Guard Glove utilizes mechanical properties to help prevent bites and permethrin built-in for the life of the garment. A specialized high-gauge textile has been both lab and field tested to reduce mosquito bites on the back of the hand where they occur most often while ensuring dexterity. Mapped abrasion resistant textile is used in high wear areas on fingers. Providing a second element of protection, the entire garment is treated with Insect Shield which Repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, biting flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums), and does not require re-application.

These are quite different from the ESW gloves. I was expecting a longer cuff type of glove. I was surprised to see I was way wrong. The cuff is indeed longer ( similar to a fanatic cuff), but the material is thinner and more spandex like. Having exposed thumbs and forefingers are the way to go. The best feature about the gloves are that even when the material is stretched, the concealment is never compromised. I like these gloves, but I am not sure if I will get a full season out of them.

The gloves are light weight and they offer good concealment for your hands. The thumb and first finger are open, so that you can grab a striker or find your safety without any trouble.

Behind the Design: Equinox Guard

Getting eaten alive by bugs can turn an otherwise great hunt into a miserable experience. But even more importantly, insects like ticks and mosquitoes can carry all kinds of diseases, from Lyme disease to Rocky Mountain Spotted fever. In collaboration with Gore textile specialists, we looked to solve this problem.
