My family & I LOVE spending our weekends in the summer at the lake! We are all about the fun, outdoor activities such as boating, golfing, fishing, and campfires. As much as I love being outside the majority of summer, I hate having to deal with ticks & mosquito’s!!
Thankfully, my friends at Mark’s hooked Davin & I up with some of their new WindRiver Tick & Mosquito-Repellent apparel. The other night, we dropped the kids off at their grandparents so we could enjoy an evening of fishing together while testing out our new gear!
HOW IT WORKS
You may be wondering how the heck it’s possible for a garment to repel ticks & mosquito’s – I was curious as well! Mark’s Tick & Mosquito Repellent Clothing is treated with permethrin, a synthetic version of a chemical naturally produced by chrysanthemum flowers. Permetherin incapacitates tick & mosquitos on contact, causing them to fly away before they bite you! The agro in me is giddy over learning about this stuff! This technology isn’t new, but Mark’s is the first retailer in Canada to come out with tick & mosquito repellent clothing. How cool is that!?
This apparel is available for both men & women in pants, shorts, shirts, jackets & accessories. The treatment used on this outdoor clothing remains effective for 70 washes. Which means you will be able to combat the ticks & mosquito’s throughout all of summer and beyond!
YASSS to a clothing line that helps protect against ticks & mosquitos while you are out making the most out of summer with your fam! We will most definitely be taking this new gear with us the next time we go to the cabin as well. Outdoor adventure awaits!
