Further Information

Features that make this BUGTech SafariLife shirt the ideal shirt for your travels:
• Proven in independent tests by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) Pesticide Trial Section to effectively repel insects. Please click here to view the test results. We know of no other manufacturer willing to publish their results.
• The majority of insect repellent garments on the market today have very poor wicking as it usually conflicts with the insect repellent finish on fabric. And so while your garment may keep insects away, without wicking the shirt will not keep you cool. We tested our BUGTech against our MaraTech range which is highly effective at wicking moisture away from your skin. Test results will be published soon.
• Weight: Only 240 grams.
• Strong, Cool Fabric: 100% Rufiji Ripstop BUGTech Fabric. Quickly releases wrinkling caused by packing.
• Anti-bacterial technology keeps your shirt smelling fresh for much longer without washing.
• Pockets: Two chest pockets with velcro closure for easy access, as well as a hidden zipped security pocket. • +Vent System: This shirt includes our new +Vent system which increases the flow of air around your body by including hidden vents along the seam-line of the back, top section of the shirt.
• Moisture Wicking: Moves perspiration away from skin and promotes quick evaporation for maximum dryness and comfort.
• QuickDry: This shirt will wash and dry quickly, to ensure that you are able to wear your shirt time and again on your safari or travels. • Roll-up Sleeve Tabs: Use the tab-and-loop system for flexibility and convenience. The tabs secure the sleeves when they’re rolled up, but remains hidden when sleeves are down.
• SPF50+: The Sun Protection Factor is a measure of the amount of the sun's ultraviolet rays that reach your skin. Our MaraTech fabric will protect your skin from harmful sun exposure - in effect sunblock for your clothing.

About our BUGTech fabric: In a nutshell we did not want to jump onto the insect repellent clothing bandwagon without first being 100% certain that you as our clients were receiving a shirt which actually worked. We were most concerned about the following: • That we developed the best possible insect repellent finish and had it tested independently to ensure that it actually worked; • That in the evolution from MaraTech to BUGTech fabric, the high level of wicking of our MaraTech fabric was not lost or hindered in anyway. The problem with most other insect repellent brands of clothing is that the wicking effect is retarded by the addition of the insect repellent finish. In effect you end up wearing a plastic bag. • Many other brands forego this testing and rely on massive marketing campaigns to sell their garments. In developing the BUGTech fabric we were guided by our new mantra for our Rufiji clothing range: "No Marketing Hype. Just the Facts."
