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.

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.”
