Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment

Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment will keep you protected from those annoying insects. Simply spray the insect repellent treatment on clothing, gear, sleeping bags and tents for an effective repellent against mosquitoes, ticks and over 55 other insects for 6 weeks or 6 washes. The odorless layer of protection is nonstaining and is as effective as 100% DEET. A University of Rhode Island study found that people wearing Permethrin-treated shoes and socks were 73.6 times less likely to have a tick bite than those wearing untreated footwear. Protect you and your loved ones on your next outing with Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
