Sawyer's Clothing Insect Repellent - $6.99
One of my latest discoveries is Sawyer's Clothing Insect Repellent. If you enjoy the outdoors and live in an area plagued by ticks or mosquitoes, you need to invest in a can of this good stuff.

Sawyer's Clothing Insect Repellent is not designed for application onto the skin, instead, treat your clothing, tent, sleeping bag, or any other fabric that can be used as a barrier from insects. Another difference from traditional insect repellents is that one application can last up to six weeks, even after washings. If you are well covered by clothing, Sawyer's is all you need. If you are wearing shorts and a t-shirt, then applying traditional insect repellent also is a good idea.

Sawyer's contains Permethrin (non-toxic to humans) which not only repels insects, it will kill mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, and 55 other insects. During application, Sawyers binds to the fibers of the garment but will not damage or discolor the fabric. Once dry, Sawyer's is orderless.

Depending on size and application style, a can of Sawyer's Clothing Insect Repellent will set you back between $7 and $20. One can is easily enough to get me thru a season, which entails multiple applications to my tent, sleeping bag, backpack, and a jacket or two.
