Gearographer Staff Yoon Kin takes notice of the Blist-O-Ban in the article Our Favorite Gear of Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2014 after almost losing his life from a blister.

"Looks gross but it’s way less so than an actual blister soaking in bacteria and other nasty microbes. This artificial blister replicates the movement of a real blister so your real blister doesn’t rub against the fabric. Having had an infected blister that went septic gives me perspective on how valuable a little fake blister could have been."

Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.

I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
