Spot Cool Stuff found a line of clothing, aptly named Buzz Off, that contains Permethrin, a man-made version of a natural insect repellent, woven into the fibers.

Made by Ex Officio, the repellent properties work on mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and flies and lasts for about 70 washes. It also provides UPF 30+ protection from the sun. So, forget about the smelly chemicals, throw on a light blue Baja shirt, and go sit in a swamp without fear of being eaten alive.
