Mosquito Proof Fashion

Clothing manufacturers are beginning to roll out fashions that are treated with permethrin - an incesticide that wards off mosquitos

Apparently, Tommy Hilfiger, and L.L Bean have also experimented with permethrin treated clothing. Unfortunately, the functionality of the garments is limited to about 25 washings - which the manufacturer claims is the average useful life of your clothes.
