Permethrin Insect Repellent Spray For Your Clothing and How It Works
Permethrin spray insect repellent for clothing is great! I mean, really, it has worked very well for me. Repelling those pesky flying insects. Particularly those that bite!
--Since it’s that time of year again, I just put out all my insect repellants on the mud room shelf. Permethrin is front-and-center! Time for a re-post!--
I just wanted to give you a tip how to keep insects off your clothing and away from your body – such as ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, ‘no-see-ums’, mites, and other nasties…
Permethrin is completely odorless after drying. It’s ideal for any outdoor activity like hiking, fishing, hunting, working outside, camping, you name it! Applying permethrin is pretty much standard operating procedure for me while outside during the summer months.
One treatment will last up to 6 weeks (or 6 washings)! It will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces, or outdoor gear.
I have been using this insect repellent on my clothing for years with great success.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
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).
