East-side mosquitoes are as ruthless as they make them, so come prepared with the most potent repellent available. Offering DEET in its purest form, Sawyer MAXI-DEET is ideal for defending yourself from mosquitoes, chiggers, fleas, gnats, and ticks in areas of extreme bug density. With its high potency, MAXI-DEET gives you more control on how much you apply and requires fewer re-applications (compared to other lower-dosage DEET aerosol sprays). Carrying a concentrated repellent also shaves weight from your PCT through-hiking kit.
Offering up to 10 hours of protection, MAXI-DEET can also be safely used on mosquito nets, head nets, and clothing made of cotton, wool, or nylon.
Maximize protection from mosquitoes and ticks by combining MAXI-DEET topical repellent with Sawyer’s Permethrin insect repellent for clothing and gear to create an effective insect barrier.
