At Sawyer, we’re an advocate of using DEET in its pure form. Sawyer Maxi-DEET is a low-odor bug-repellent that can be used on skin, clothing, mosquito nets, and head nets. Because it is 100% DEET, unlike other lower-dosage DEET aerosol sprays, Sawyer Maxi-DEET allows you better control of how much you apply and it is also longer-lasting. Sawyer Maxi-DEET is also less bulky and weighs less than other DEET aerosol sprays. So when in areas of extreme bug density, use Sawyer Maxi-DEET.
