If you’ve ever survived a serious encounter with mosquitoes or blackflies, you know that the experience can wreak havoc with your sanity. (One June, one old-time Mainer explained to me that “a lotta people go nuts because of the blackflies. You wouldn’t be the first.”)

The only people who might understand fly-ridden angst better than New Englanders are our neighbors to the north. So it’s no surprise that a Canadian duo has designed the ultimate in bug-protective clothing. The Ontario-based Original Bug Shirt Company’s Elite Edition Bug Shirt ($69.95) and Regular Bug Pants ($57.95) keep insects completely at bay by covering every inch of your skin with lightweight, breathable fabric. Strategically placed mesh offers ventilation and lets you see–but won’t let even the littlest no-see-um through.
