Wirecutter’s 5 Most Popular Picks in June 2020
Mosquitoes are on the offensive, but Wirecutter readers are fighting back: Our top pick for the best mosquito control gear was the most-purchased pick in June, and our favorite insect repellents weren’t far behind. Of course, with summer bugs come summer heat, and predictably, our top-pick window fans, room fans, window air conditioners, and portable air conditioners were all on last month’s top 20 list.
Resistance bands for at-home workouts were once again a popular choice for readers looking for gym alternatives, and nonstick pans and air purifiers remain perennially popular. Also popular last month: webcams, office chairs, bathroom scales, handheld vacuums, gas grills, garden hoses, and bike locks.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Sawyer Permethrin Premium Insect Repellent is used on clothing, not skin, and it provides long-lasting protection against ticks.
One of the most popular, and readily available, means of tick prevention these days is the use of permethrin. Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment is easy to find at most any sporting goods store and applies quick and easy to your clothing, boots, gear, etc.
While not technically a filtered water bottle, Sawyer Products’ water filtration system can transform anything into a safe, clean drinking vessel. Simply fill up the included reusable pouch at any water source, screw the pouch onto the filter, and either drink directly from the filter or squeeze the now-filtered water into another vessel (like a water bottle or pot for cooking).
