Have just come back from a 3 day trip in Mull and in that time I can honestly say I have seen and removed more ticks than I have done in over 30 combined years of stalking
many of them are so small that barely show up until attached and causing an irritation
I have pulled 20-30 of the area between my upper calf and lower thigh
another 10-15 off my hip and the backs of my thighs
I have not considered Rovince or other anti tick clothing but am now seriously looking into it
my problem is that the prospect of either wearing another layer or not being able to open, remove or ventilate is going to cause more discomfort to me as I sweat buckets climbing up a 3000ft peak with a rifle etc. (I do appreciate the severity of the alternative of catching Lyme's disease)
what are people wearing and how effective vs comfortable are they?
From what I can see it is a barrier protection, i.e ticks cannot penetrate the material and any gap presents a break in the protection.
am not aware of ticks penetrating any material when they can walk in through a waist band, cuff, collar, trouser leg, sock...
am I missing something here?
