Permethrin Spray and Picaridin – Best Mosquito Repellent Spray

I Really Need To Prevent Mosquito Bites

Mosquito repellent spray is a necessity for me. I have a horrible mosquito bit allergy. For me, they’re not just a pesky annoyance that causes some tenderness and itching, maybe a little swelling that goes down in a day or two. No, no. I’m one of the lucky ones with what’s called “Skeeter Syndrome.” This means that my reaction to a mosquito bit runs to the extreme. One bite will make the affected area blow up like a water balloon. It will be an uncontrollable combination of itching and burning that is nearly impossible to quell even with strong antihistamines both topical and internal. It can include fever, nausea, headache, and pain in other parts of my body that are not even part of the bite. One bite can put me in bed for a week.

So when I say that I have searched high and low and tried literally every mosquito repellant spray on the market, I am not kidding. But not just the sprays. I’ve tried lotions, infrared lights and insecticide fans, bracelets, shields, pills, natural products, chemical compounds, you name it. Some have worked a little. But only one has worked a lot. Permethrin Insect Repellant.

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).
