Entering a season that promises to be a particularly bad tick year due to the warm winter across much of the country, Buff USA has announced a new product lineup featuring EPA-registered “Insect Shield” protection.
Read more in the press release below.
The Men’s Journal July cover trumpets the “coming Lyme Disease epidemic.” The New York Times recently reported that the warm winter led to a particularly lean harvest of acorns, which in turn undercut the rodent population, which in turn put very hungry ticks on a zombie-like hunt for human flesh. And the onslaught is coming so rapidly in some areas of the country, that it’s being considered a public health crisis.
Fortunately, our friends at Buff USA have a growing collection of designs for neck and headwear that feature Insect Shield…a patent-pending, odorless, EPA-registered fabric treatment that repels ticks as well as other biting insects. That means protection against insects that can carry Lyme disease … and with a Buff, it also means blocking 95% of UV rays, pleasantly wicking moisture away from the skin with CoolMax® Extreme, and looking generally badass.
Don’t let bug bites and sunburn put a damper on your adventure. Infused with an invisible repellent that lasts through 70 washings, the UV Insect Shield® Buff® helps keep biting insects at bay. Plus, it blocks 95% of harmful UV rays* and features Polygiene® technology to kill odor-causing bacteria.
