Insect shield crew sock is proven to repel mosquitoes, ants, ticks, flies, chiggers and midges. Permethrin repellent provides odorless protection. Lightweight, crew sock. All season wear; Ultra-Dri moisture wicking; made in USA.
Poorly made. Fabric developed a snag and a hole the first time they were worn, after only an hour or so. Seller's return policy makes it not worthwhile to bother returning.
Bought these socks because I really react to mosquito bites and thought I would give them a try. I was very disappointed in them. The cuff of the sock is very tight. I tried them at my ankles and also pulled them up as high as they would go on my calf. I wore these the 2 nights that I was out and got several mosquito bites through the socks in my ankles. I am very disappointed in the performance of these socks. I would not recommend them and I am sad that I wasted my money on these.
I'm an adult female with size 9 shoes. I purchased the large and it fits rather tight, but that's ok because I like squeezing my pants into the socks for maximum air-lock against ticks. I have not had ticks on myself since purchasing these along with permethrin-doused pants, and I wear them every time I hike and they have been durable so far through 8 washes.
I wear these in the mosquito infested Waipio Valley rain forest of the Big Island, Hawaii. They are very comfortable and fit well. It is so much easier to enjoy the valley when you aren't covered in mosquito bites. They keep the bugs off as promised.
The worse thing is that I cannot wear these! Sizing is absurd. Amazon sells a number of different sizes and strengths of Permethrin that you can spray on your own clothing, if you prefer. There are lots of different ways to pest-proof your self and others. I feel Permethrin for me, is a gift from God! Nothing but good results, especially in the Insect Shield clothing.
So many people I know have contracted Lyme disease, here in Maryland, I've taken to wearing insect-repellent clothing in tick season. These are cushioned, but aren't too thick and hot. They also retain their shape and fit better than the InsectShield brand crew socks, which are cheaper, but shrink.
Well made, well fitting socks! No smell in association with the permethrin that's in them. That was a HUGE plus! I was not sure if these would have an odor.
