  • Designed for use with all outdoor activities, including swimming

Wetland Bite Free

OK, I have seen what others have said about this product but, after I used it. I have a special place that is year around a wetland or marsh. I have never, in almost 20 years, been there and not been bitten by a mosquito (winter included). This last trip my companion and I did not get bit once during a three day stay and we were outside the whole time. There were mosquitoes and even had to chase them out of the tent but, again, not one bite.

Great Product!

I have used the bugband on various camping and backpacking trips for the last two years. And yes, some sites near lakes and streams. I usually get eaten alive - and have received nary a bite when wearing the band. I can usually use one for a weekend trip; the longest I have used one without switching out.
Even have my camping companions trying them - and it has worked for most of them (only two mentioned they still were bitten, but not as much as usual).

Waste of money!

Travelling to Florida this past week, I had high hopes for this product after picking it up from REI (by mistake, as I was looking for a Bug Bam).

Sadly however, after following all instructions, it didn't help at all with mosquitoes. We were eaten alive and had mosquitoes even landing and biting next to the band!

The packaging says 120 hours (although I couldn't find any data to support this on the company website), it didn't even work for 120 seconds! How do they gauge this anyway?

I know there are great wristband repellent products out there. Unfortunately though, this is definitely not one of them.

Does not work even a little bit

I camp a LOT, live in WA, and have a baby on the way, so I have begun experimenting with non-spray/non-poison forms of mosquito repellent. This product doesn't work. Spent last weekend (mid-may) in the Cascades and wore the band the entire time- except while sleeping, when I kept it in its container per the instructions. I ended up with seven mosquito bites on the arm wearing the band (incidently, this was more bites than the arm not wearing the band.) Was slapping them off of me inches away from the band.
