1. A bug repellant spray to give your outdoorsy fabrics an insect-warding shield that lasts for six weeks and through repeat washings.

This spray is meant for clothing, tents, backpacks, etc. and shouldn't be applied directly to your skin. It won't stain or distress clothing, and you won't be able to sweat it out! Plus, you can use it on your dog, to protect them from fleas and ticks for up to 35 days.

Promising review: "I hike with a wonderful lunatic who thinks nothing of taking shortcuts through waist-deep, flowing, prickling, itching grass, and other places pretty much deemed tick central. I sprayed this stuff on my pack, pair of leggings, and hiking boots, two weeks prior to my hike (everything but the tank top I was wearing).

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
