The Original Bug Shirt is available in two children’s sizes. They do not have the zippered pocket on the front, but do have an adjustable cord at the back of the hood to allow for a variety of head sizes, as well as the double slider zipper at the top of the face mesh, just like the Elite Edition adult style.
The small child size is designed for average build kids between about 18 months and 4 or 5 years, and has a knit cuff at the wrist. The large child size is designed for average build kids between the ages of 4 or 5 and 8 or 9 years, and has an adjustable elastic cord threaded through the fabric wrist band. See the sizing chart for more accurate sizing details.
Both sizes are available in the natural coloured cotton as well as the sandstone and ivy green in the polyester.
And just for fun, as we had some extra fabric left after making the HI Viz adult bug shirts, we decided to make a few of the children’s sized bug shirts in fluorescent orange too. No reflective stripes, just an easy to see orange. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to see where the kids are when they are outside playing, and being protected from biting insects.
