This is my bug spray of choice. I'm just not a fan of DEET, because as effective as it can be, I don't like all the warning labels, melted plastics, eroded synthetic clothing, and skin-burning sensations that can accompany it.
I used this in the Eastern Sierra last year, which was a banner year for mosquitoes (think thick black clouds), and had great results. I also like the small size of the spray bottle, it doesn't take up much room or weigh a lot in my pack.
If you are giving any thought to getting off of the DEET train, give this stuff a shot.
I used 30% DEET for week 1, and then compared this Natrapel for week 2 down in Nicaragua. The results were very similar, I got about 2 mosquito bites using this repellent, when I'm normally a mosquito bite FACTORY. Hands down would rather use this repellent than DEET -- NO BRAINER!
as for bug repellent, its no 99.9% deet, but its a damn good substitute. two nights, 40 miles on the AT, and this stuff worked like a charm. it also wont melt your jacket or feel like warm cancer soaking deep into your skin, as deet does.
I run by a swamp and in the summer there are a lot of biteing flies. I sparyed the repellant on and it seemed to work fine
