Description

Mother Nature has her ways of testing our priorities. Biting bugs will challenge the resolve of the even the most dedicated angler. Keep those annoying little buggers off your skin with the tech-heavy BugStopper® Hoody. This men's quick-drying hoody sports InsectShield® for long-lasting relief from biting insects and COR3™ fabric to fight odors and wick moisture to keep you dry through it all. It's rated to UPF 50 for sun protection, and the arms and shoulders are cut for a full range of motion and a natural cast.

Features

  • Quick‐drying, wicking, anti‐odor & UPF 50
  • Long‐lasting insect protection
  • Flat‐seam construction for maximum comfort
  • Articulated hood
  • FABRIC TECH: 100% polyester
    APPROX. WEIGHT: 7.2 oz.

Technologies

  • Products using the COR3™ Technology fabric finish have a UPF rating of 30 or greater, properties to minimize odor and outstanding wicking performance for important moisture management. The anti-odor finish helps control odors caused by a wide range of microorganisms (mold, mildew, algae, yeast) is compatible with virtually all fabrics. All of our performance cotton clothing utilizing COR3™ also feature COR3™ EZ. The "EZ" means easy care and indicates that garments featuring this treatment will travel well and resist wrinkles.

  • Insect Shield® repellent apparel provides long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection to help battle insects some of which may carry diseases such as West Nile virus and Lyme disease. Insect Shield Repellent Apparel has been registered to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums). The active ingredient in Insect Shield is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers that it retains effective repellency throughout the lifetime of the product.

  • UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and indicates how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed.  A fabric with a rating of 50 will allow only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays to pass through.  This means the fabric will reduce your skin's UV radiation exposure significantly.  All of our UPF finishes last the life of the garment, an industry standard of 30 washings.

  1. WHY DIDN'T I GET THIS SOONER?

    100%

    Here in Minnesota, we are known for our mosquitos. Not only that, we don't have very reliable weather. The Bugstopper Hoody has been an awesome addition to my Simms Gear setup. The fit on this product is a bit loose, but that's how it is supposed to fit. Keep that in mind when you try it on for the first time. 5 Stars.
  2. The GOAT hoody

    100%

    They should rename this shirt the GOAT hoody, because I have never used something that works as well in Buggy mosquito and biting fly infested areas as this hoody does. I live in Northern Minnesota which gets pretty bad come summer time. I was recently floating down a river with two buddies and while preceded to spray themselves and still get eaten alive, I pulled my hoody up and didn’t get bit once. I just recently bought 2 more, plus it doubles as good sun protection. I tell all my fishing buddies about this shirt!!!
  3. Best hoody I have used in years

    100%

    The new Bugstopper Hoody is amazing. I just got back from a 3 day trip on the Green River in Utah and I wore the all three days. It was great at keeping the bugs off and great as protection from the sun. It breathes well, dries very quick and also didn't smell like I had worn it for three days. Great product!
  4. Passes the Alaska mosquito test

    100%

    I didn't think this shirt would stand a chance against Alaska's state bird (the mosquito) - but it actually works! Got it last week, wore it all weekend on a camping/pack rafting trip and didn't get a single bug bite.

    This hoodie is also super comfortable and breathable, and quick drying. Perfect weight for Alaska summer weather.

    I think I'm going to buy three more of these ...
  5. My go to shirt on recent trip to Cuba

    100%

    Traveling to Cuba in June means lots of sun, a lot of heat and plenty of bugs! I purchased this shirt before the trip and at first sight it got my wife's approval and I was loving the pattern and feel of the fabric. On the flats boat is was a go to and I actually took off my fishing shirt and wore this the rest of the day after the sun came out and started to beat down on my neck. The feel of this shirt on the skin is like air conditioning and the hood is a great way to block off the extra UV rays. I found myself always keeping this shirt handy for evening bug defense and I will for sure be buying more colors! I have tried the other companies tropical hoodies and I think this one tops them all for comfort, fit and style! Great work Simms, would love to see a T shirt in the same fabric!
  6. Love the Bugstopper Hoody

    100%

    I purchased this hoody because it looked like a nice shirt for Summer lake fishing. We arrived at the lake in Wyoming last week and got out of the truck and I put this hoody on just in case there were a lot of mosquitos around... and, all of a sudden, there were a LOT of them! I just put up the hood and the bugs never landed on me. The fabric dries very quickly after releasing fish. I am going to purchase another one for yard work around the acreage just in case a bug shows up!
  7. After hiking 2660 miles, hands down favorite shirt I've ever owned (possibly favorite piece of gear that I had)

    100%

    I wish I could post some pictures of this shirt for the review. I successfully thru hiked the Pacific Crest Trail this summer from Mexico to Canada from April 15th to September 24th. I wore this shirt EVERY SINGLE DAY. It was my hiking shirt, sun protection, sanity from bug protection, lightweight, breathable, warm enough to block the wind but not too heavy that you felt like you were in a sweat box shirt. From the desert to the summit of Mt. Whitney, to the north Cascades, this thing kicked absolute a**. After almost 3000 miles of constantly wearing my pack, it finally starting wearing down a little (still doesn't have a hole all the way through the fabric) bit in the shoulders underneath the straps. Other than the shoulders, and maybe the smell from wearing it so often in all types of weather and grime and sweat and grit, this shirt is still usable. Thank you for such a fantastic piece of gear and for the help making my hike so comfortable. I had trouble justifying the steeper price tag right away, but after I put it to use, I wish I could buy these for everyone I know.
  8. Incredible hoody!!

    100%

    Did a great job keeping flying pests away while fishing in the Western Woods of Maine this June. Just the right weight to keep me comfortable at night and while fishing and very comfortable. This will definitely be worn when not fishing too.
