Heading to a buggy zone? The BugsAway Damselfly is the lightest-weight, highest-coverage top you'll find. An airy mesh with woven panels, its drawcord hood, cinchable hem, and elastic-bound sleeves are uninviting to bugs, and the whole garment stuffs into the left front security pocket for easy packing.

Edited based on another customer's question: for the second picture, I put my hand in the sleeve, to demonstrate that the mesh fabric will not be waterproof
It says it's good for 70 washes, but I really haven't had any reason to wash it yet after a few months. I bought mine for casual every day wear when hanging out in my yard. I have great fear of ticks as a recovering late stage critical Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella, + survivor. I also hate and wanted to prevent mosquito bites. The first night I wore this was at dusk, it was humid, and after a heavy rain. My dog and best friend sat beside me. Mosquitoes were flying all around them, and my friend got bit a few times. They flew near me, but didn't get any closer than 6".
The material and fit! AND THE AMAZING HOOD SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR WOMEN. This jacket weighs nothing and could quite literally fit in your pocket. It is almost completely mesh, very little solid material. So you could wear it in the heat, but is also just enough to cut a slight evening chill. If you are worried about size, don't sweat it too much. Being mesh, it has a comfortable amount of stretch. I bought a M(8-10) (which is what is exactly as written on the tag. I was a bigger 12 and losing weight. I am a 6 now and it's still a perfect fit. But the best part ladies? The hood. As you zip up the jacket, you can tuck your hair- and there's room for a lot of it!- into the nape and stretchy hood. Then zip it the rest of the way up- which you can then tuck your chin in- and then!! There is a zip cord at the back of the head that you can tighten, and then a ring of the solid material edging around the face to have the most minimum exposure. NOTHING will be able to crawl your hair. Like spiders at night or anything falling out of trees. The Amazon price seems high, but retail is close to double. Once you get this, you will love it enough that ya would've paid double.
Things that would make this jacket even better:
1. Thumbholes to hold the sleeves down over the back of the hands. My hands often get bites while using a camera or binoculars.
2. More colors! I bought the carbon color, which is a slate gray. I'd love to see this jacket in more fun colors.
The sizing it a big large so I should have scaled down. Also the white is really attractive but does dirty quite a bit. And you dont want to wash it too much because of the bug repellent aspect. Things to keep in mind.
