    Default zPacks Vertice - mosquito proof?

    I just got my new vertice rain pants today. Amazingly light, as expected, but it occurs to me that maybe the material isnít mosquito proof? One use of my rain gear on past buggy trips was to throw it on at camp if mosquitos are unbearable so I can move around, set up, cook, etc. Anyone know if the Vertice material is a barrier for bugs that they canít bite through? Iíve been bit through merino base layers many times!

    I have/had the ZP Vertice rain jacket. Wearing a tee underneath I don't get bit on the forearms.

    I wore my vertice rain pants through the mosquito infested southern most two miles of Baxter State Park and had no issues with biting on my legs. I thought that was a good test.

    Happy Hiking!
