The CleverHiker team spent last week walking the halls of Outdoor Retailer in Denver, drooling over all the awesome new outdoor gear coming out in 2022/23. OR is one of the largest gear conferences in the world, and we were fortunate enough to meet up with some of our favorite companies to get a sneak peek at their upcoming innovations. We put together this article to share the inside scoop on the new products we’re most stoked to get out on a trail!
Sawyer Permethrin for Dogs
Sawyer Permethrin is the most effective method we’ve found for dealing with ticks and mosquitos on trail. It’s a natural product derived from chrysanthemum flowers that kills ticks after they come in contact with it, so you’re protected from terrible issues like Lyme disease. You can use the original spray on dogs safely, but we think it’s excellent that Sawyer is making this more clear for dog owners by marketing a bottle labeled specifically for dogs. We think it’s really important to protect our pups when hiking, and we’re excited to see the popularity of this effective product grow.
