Protect against West Nile Virus and other mosquito-borne and insect-borne illnesses with insect repellent when walking outdoors. The Center for Disease Control recommends mosquito repellent with 5% to 50% DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide), as the best insect repellent for West Nile Virus mosquitoes. Over 50% DEET provides no further protection and can damage some fabrics.
At last, this one is just about perfect. It is truly odorless. It really works. It doesn't eat through your fabric like DEET. Cutter Advanced Picaridin comes in a pump spray and is safe to use on skin and fabric. Tests show it is as effective as DEET.
With or without sunscreen SPF 15. Waterproof, DEET-free, PABA-free, with a Gentle Breeze scent or unscented.

I bought one of the long-sleeved women's Lyft shirts before a walking vacation. I loved the Ocean deep blue color and the fabric was soft and dried very fast when I hand-washed it and air-dried during the trip. The fabric uses Insect Shield® Repellent Technology, which is EPA registered. The repellent should last through 70 launderings. It also has SPF 50 sun rating. I've read many favorable reviews for insect-repellency, but we didn't encounter many bugs to repel. But I loved the shirt so much that I ordered a short-sleeved version as soon as I got home.
