Insect Repellent by Sawyer

What’s to love: Comes in two formulations, one for use on skin (and is even safe for dogs), and the other is safe to use on clothing and gear.

What does it do: Picaridin Insect Repellent for skin is available as a lotion which is effective for 14 hours or as a spray effective up to 12 hours. The family-friendly spray is an alternative to DEET and repels mosquitoes, ticks and biting flies. Permethrin Insect Repellent for Clothing, Gear and Tents is — just like it says v for use on clothing, gear and tents, but also on shoes, backpacks, hammocks and patio furniture. It’s formulated not to stain or damage fabric, plastics or other finished surfaces and will repel insects for up to six weeks. Both formulations are available in a variety of sizes and packaging. Prices start at $5.99.
