The Daily Beast: This Is the Bug Spray That Saved My Summer

This bug spray is DEET free, is the perfect size, and most importantly, actually works.

For the past few weeks, I have been testing out bug sprays. This wasn’t a work thing, although it quickly became one. No, this was a race against the clock. My legs were coated in mosquito bites, just from spending time outside reading or walking the dog. Since the backyard is where I was hoping to spend all of my time this summer, I needed a solution, and I needed one fast.

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).
