Sawyer Products Premium Insect Repellent with 20% Picaridin

Our Review
Depending on where you beach, insect repellent might be an absolute must.

Sawyer Product’s Premium Insect Repellent with 20% Picaridin is a great family-friendly option for bug defense that repels against mosquitos, gnats, sand flies ticks, chiggers and more.

The formula won’t damage, discolor or harm clothing, fabrics, fishing line or sunglasses, so it’s a great effective alternative to some of those nasty, DEET dominant formulas! When the bugs come out but you’re not ready to pack it up, your beach day can go on with a bit of Sawyer’s Repellent!

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).
