Sawyer Products Premium Insect Repellent with 20% Picaridin

Our Review

Sawyer Products Premium Insect Repellent with 20% Picaridin is a very well-reviewed option when it comes to bug defense that is perfect for die-hard anglers who refuse to let bugs ruin a good day or night on the water!

Sawyer recently sent me out some of this lotion to try for myself, and it really works! The mosquitos in particular on my native Cape Cod beaches and lakes are absolutely brutal, but I’ve remained bite-free when using this product!

The lotion is not greasy or smelly, applies easily and goes quite a long way! Sawyer claims 14 hours of defense against ticks and mosquitos and 8 hours against chiggers, biting flies and more. For a reliable, safe and affordable bug-spray alternative, this lotion is the bees-knees!
Sawyer Products Premium Permethrin Insect Repellent for Clothing

Our Review

Bug spray can be a pivotal preventative measure when it comes to enjoying yourself on the water. This clothing treatment by Sawyer Products takes standard bug spray to the next level by providing long-lasting, multi-species defense for your garments.

This repellent utilizes odorless Permethrin to block mosquitos and ticks in particular, and will last for up to 42 days or 6 washings. Treat fishing hats, tents, canopies, backpacks or even components of your waders – the possibilities are endless!

Application is super easy using the trigger spray and the price is right! A super practical and thoughtful gift idea by Sawyer Products!

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.
