Outdoors extras: Must-have sunscreen and an easy-camp quiche
GEAR OF THE WEEK
Gear name: Stay Put
Gear type: Sunscreen
Product description: I’ve turned my wife into a paddler. She doesn’t fish, but she loves taking her kayak to cruise rivers and lakes. Unfortunately for her, the same sun that makes me tan burns her relentlessly. So sunscreen — a kind that won’t wash off if she sweats or gets wet — is a must. Enter Sawyer’s Stay Put. It bonds to skin, making it waterproof and at least sweat resistant. It doesn’t feel greasy going on but stays in place for an extended period of time. And it doesn’t contain harmful PABA chemicals.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
