First off, let me start by saying that mosquitoes love me. When I started looking into spending more time in the back-country hiking, I knew I needed a insect repellent suitable for the job. What I like about this one specifically is that it uses picaridin, not DEET. While DEET is known for being a great repellent, it can also potentially dissolve plastics or other synthetics, found in clothes and hiking gear. I also like that this is a lotion which I prefer to a greasy spray. I noticed that it stays on great after fording trough rivers too. And with amount of ticks we have here in Missouri, I can walk confidently through the woods with my picaridin shield!

I've used this product for a little over a year now and I absolutely love it. It works like a charm. I took it to Costa Rica over the summer for a two week trip. Whenever I had this product on I never got bit. I even went on a hike in the jungle and didn't get bit because I had this product on. For being a lotion, it surprisingly does not make you feel sticky and it also does not leave you with a bad smell which is also nice.
