Review: Haeleum Insect Repellant Shirts
Haeleum insect repellant clothing: Outdoor wear for all activities
Pronounced hā•LĒ•um and derived from the old English root word “hael”, meaning protection against attack. Haeleum clothing is designed to help protect users from biting insects that are known to carry dangerous insect-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease, Zika and West Nile viruses and Dengue Fever. This level of protection is achieved by treating each shirt with Insect Shield® Repellent Technology, providing effective, odorless protection against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. Haeleum also practices environmentally responsible manufacturing, supporting and promoting waste recycling and energy efficiency. To top it all, their products have received an official recommendation from the World Health Organization, U.S. Center for Disease Control and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
Haeleum’s Rad (men’s) and Gleam (women’s) insect repellant shirts both offer 40+ UPF sun protection and moisture wicking due to their 100% Natural Stretch DrýTru Polyester fabrication. The shirts are wrinkle resistant and designed for an active lifestyle both on land and water.
I ordered one of each earlier this fall in advance of a camping trip my wife and I had planned. They arrived together on our doorstep in a small box literally as we walked out the door for the trip. I quickly opened the box to verify its contents and away we went. Our experience with the Haeleum Rad and Gleam greatly exceeded our expectations.
Each of the shirts was a perfect fit and are ideally suited for a multi-activity outdoor adventure. Hiking, check; standup paddling, check; hanging out around a campfire, check; insect repellant, check. All in all, we could not be happier with the Haeleum Rad and Gleam shirts and give them a strong recommendation for any outdoor enthusiast looking for a lightweight, loose athletic fitting shirt for all occasions.
