These Leggings Have Built-In Insect Repellant, So You Can Work Out Outside Without Worrying About Bug Bites

Picture it: It's a gorgeous day and you're feeling motivated, so you decide to do a quick yoga routine outside. You're five seconds into a Yoga with Adrienne video when mosquitoes start flocking to you like you're covered in...whatever a mosquito's favorite food is.

The solution to your problem? Pang Wangle's Insect Shield High Waist Contour Leggings. Yep, they're literally leggings with built-in insect repellant, meaning you can get your outdoor groove on without ending up covered in bug bites.

According to the brand, the Insect Shield® technology in these pants repels insects, including those that can carry Zika virus, Lyme disease, West Nile virus malaria and other insect-borne diseases. The Insect Shield process binds a proprietary permethrin (an insecticide) formula tightly to the fabric fibers—resulting in effective and odorless insect protection that lasts for more than 70 washes. It's also EPA approved for the whole family, including infants and pregnant women.

In black and dark blue colors, they're high-waisted and feature moderate compression, and include a waistband pocket for money, keys or other knick knacks.

Because the last thing you should worrying about on a sunset hike is how itchy your body is going to be in the morning.
