Zorrel International announces the launch of a new insect-repellent performance knit collection ideal for those spending time in the outdoors. Zorrel, a recognized innovator, will now combine their Dri-Balance technology with Insect Shield Repellent Technology, resulting in a performance collection offering style, comfort and now – protection from annoying and potentially dangerous insects.

Zorrel's new collection features EPA-registered Insect Shield technology proven to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums), including species that can carry Lyme disease, West Nile virus and other diseases. Insect Shield protection is invisible, odorless, does not change the feel of the garment and lasts through 70 launderings – the expected life of a garment.

William Gardiner, VP of Zorrel International says: “Zorrel has always been about introducing cutting edge garment technologies that make the wearer more comfortable when they work or play. Insect Shield is the proven leader in the field of insect protection. We see an enormous amount of opportunity in this market with people who spend all of their work-day in the outdoors. The effectiveness of the Insect Shield solution coupled with our Dri-Balance and Syntrel technologies will provide the ultimate in comfort and protection to the worker in the field or the casual wearer on the golf course or at the beach.”

The Insect Shield collection will include eight styles (2 men's polos, 2 women's polos, and 4 technical tees) available as of January 2009.
