Sitka Equinox Guard Pant
The Equinox Guard Pant helps prevent contact with insects in three distinct ways: limited skin exposure, bite-reduction fabric and built-in Insect Shield® protection. Comfortable and moisture-wicking, especially in hot, humid conditions, the pant is made from a lightweight SITKA-developed fabric that promotes airflow and features zippered leg vents that expel heat when moving fast and zip up for extra protection. Internal leg gaiters helps prevent against ticks and chiggers from crawling up your legs when worn under socks.

Getting eaten alive by bugs can turn an otherwise great hunt into a miserable experience. But even more importantly, insects like ticks and mosquitoes carry all kinds of diseases, from Lyme disease to Rocky Mountain Spotted fever. In collaboration with Gore textile specialists, we looked to minimize the health risk and annoyance of insect bites by innovating new fabrics and combining those with Insect Shield® treatment that furthers the protection. Made with high-gauge knit fabrics, the resulting products protect against ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers and no-see-ums while remaining extremely lightweight and breathable for warm weather comfort. The Equinox Guard Collection is a first-of-its-kind solution that protects you from head to toe in warm and buggy environments.
The Equinox Guard Collection is designed to let you hunt comfortably in hot, buggy environments without distraction or worry. Chiggers, ticks, mosquitos and no-see-ums won’t compromise your day – or worse, your health. Your worst bug story is now a thing of the past.
Ratings & Reviews
These are probably my new favorite pants.. beside the timberline pants for winter use these are awesome… the looks and feel to these are completely different from anything I’ve seen from Sitka before.. excellent. And I have yet to be bitten by any bugs in the woods.. sometimes the extended cuffs on the legs get caught while putting on but other than that they are awesome pants. My new favorite.
