Bamboo Fibre

Bamboo is a highly breathable fibre - this helps when it is warm as the bamboo preserves its natural freshness through the absorbtion and transpiration of moisture, and when cold the bamboo fibre micro-structure functions as a base layer that helps keep your feet warm. Bamboo also has natural anti-bacterial properties - this means that the Bugsox keep your feet fresh and odourless for longer - leaving them healthy and hygenic.

Anti-Insect

Bugsox Against Mosquitoes
Some strains of mosquito are known to particularly favour the feet of their hosts - it is believed that it is the smell of human feet that can draw the mosquitoes in. Bugsox fight this attraction in two ways - first the Bamboo fibres of the Bugsox have a natural anti-bacterial affect and help to reduce any smell and attraction - secondly the Healthguard impregnation of the Bugsox will act to repel any mosquitoes that are still attracted. Tests have shown that wearing Bugsox can lead to a 90% reduction in the number of mosquito bites in the protected area.

Bugsox Against Ticks
Ticks attach to their hosts by passing onto them from low lying grasses, reeds and shrubs - this means that often their first contact with any human host is around the foot, ankle or lower leg. The Healthguard impregnation of the Bugsox prevents any Ticks attaching and therefore drastically reduces the threat of tick bites. No means can be 100% effective in preventing Ticks, but when combined with other sensible measures - such as wearing long-legged trousers and tucking them into your socks - Bugsox act as a strong first line of defence.
