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!

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
