Enjoy outdoor summer activities safely with the best tick repellents

The summer months are ideal for outdoor activities such as trekking, having a cook-out in the park, and hitting the trail for a run. While spending time in nature gets you moving and can help improve your mood, it also comes with a certain level of risk, like getting sunburned, heatstroke, and being bitten by more bugs than you can count. But don't let the fear of these blood-sucking creatures keep you inside all summer. You can avoid insect bites if you take the correct precautions, such as using effective tick repellents and checking your entire body after being outside. We reviewed and compiled a list of the top tick repellents for 2022 to help you select one that meets all your needs, and make it so you don’t have to compromise on your outdoor activities because you’re afraid of ticks.

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).
