How To Apply Sawyer Bug Spray To Skin

Sawyer is a high-quality insect repellent company in the USA. Applying Sawyer bug sprays is easy. When applying this bug spray, hold the Sawyer bottle 6-8 inches from your skin and shake well before application.

Next, apply the Sawyer insect repellent lightly onto exposed areas like the neck or face while moving in a circular motion for full coverage with no excess Sawyer product on hand; rub gently into pores so that all parts are absorbed before letting dry completely—usually 30 minutes.

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).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
