Alexa Licata from ExOfficio joined Margaret to talk about the Seattle company's origins and passion for outfitting adventurers of all types. Many of ExOfficio's clothing choices are wrinkle-resistant and quick drying. Some are also infused with insect repellant and sunscreen, making them excellent choices for hiking and camping trips.

Alexa shared several clothing items, including their extremely popular underwear line, which is comfortable and extremely quick-drying, while two models showcased the company's 'Bugs Away' insect-repellant clothing line. Margaret also shared a photo of herself, wearing an ExOfficio shirt while on a humanitarian trip to Uganda.

The grounds give the fibers increased surface area to pull perspiration away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable. The particles neutralize odor molecules so you stay fresher longer. JavaTech is also rated UPF 15+ for protection from the sun when you're out and about.

Sol Cooltrademark clothing is rated UPF Sun Guard 50+ for optimal sun protection. Sol Cool fabric features Icefil technology, which uses Xylitol to create a mint-like cooling sensation to lower skin temperature up to 5 F. Perspiration is wicked away to the fabric surface to evaporate. Sol Cool is also antimicrobial to keep you fresh at your most active.

Protecting yourself is more important than ever. BugsAway is a complete line of insect repellent clothing using Insect Shield technology to convert apparel and gear into long-lasting, effective, and convenient bug protection.
