Yahoo: The very best insect repellent sprays on Amazon, according to reviews
Warmer weather means long evenings of sipping wine in our garden (short of wine? Top up with a wine delivery service pronto), brighter mornings that make getting out of bed less torturous and zero shivering when we stand outside for hours on end, because our children want us to watch them do tricks on the slide.
Sadly though, it also means the returns of all those bugs we’d forgotten about for another year.
From mosquitos and flies to ants and wasps, there are all manner of pests lurking in our newly planted gardens and, though we’re peaceful, animal-loving people, we’re not keen on being bitten while we wait for the barbecue to heat up.
That means that bug repellant is a must.
The thing is that many of us don’t stock up on it, especially when we don’t intend to travel to warmer climates for a while, and so, though our tin cupboard might be full to the brim, our bug repellant cupboard (if you have such a thing) remains bare.
So, we’ve rounded up six top-rated insect repellant sprays on Amazon, so you can enjoy the sun with none of the flailing your arms and itching that bugs bring to the party.

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).
