SlingFin CrossBow 2 Mesh Drop-In

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This accessory is designed for the CrossBow 2 StormPak, allowing the user to be well protected from insects, while minimizing weight with the bare-bones setup of the CrossBow 2. For those who want a strong tent that is easy to customize, the SlingFin CrossBow 2 is a lightweight way to do it! When using the StormPak configuration, the tent user has the option to modify this open-air setup by adding the Mesh Inner Drop-In. This accessory is a hybrid between a tent inner, and an open-bottomed centrally… Full review

Para'Kito Mosquito Repellent Band

rated 4 of 5 stars The Para'Kito Mosquito Repellent wristband is highly effective and easy to wear. The brightly colored wristbands are easy to load and adaptable to your wearing needs, like on a chain or around an ankle. I received the Para'Kito wristband with two refills to trial ($19.50). I wore it while hiking at Lake Tahoe and then Mont Blanc and found it to be very effective in cool temperatures and hot. It can also be worn around an ankle. I found it comfortable to wear due to the adjustable velcro strap. So… Full review

Coghlan's Deluxe Mosquito Head Net

rated 5 of 5 stars This mosquito head netting is great. I used it deer hunting two weeks ago because mosquitos are so bad and all I could hear was them buzzing my head, so we all use them now all the time. I would recommend this for use with small children too. The netting is strong and light and the whole headgear is not heavy on your head. Full review

Sawyer Stay-Put Sunscreen SPF 30

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the one to use. Period. Even if it requires some effort to find it. Full review

Sawyer Stay-Put Sunscreen SPF 30

rated 5 of 5 stars When you think of Sawyer, you probably are thinking “water filters.” My first thought when I saw Sawyer was selling a sunscreen was, “It can’t be very good. Companies should stick to what they know.” However, after a summer of use, I strongly assert Sawyer’s “Stay Put” SPF 30 Sunscreen is the best sun protection product I have ever used. When Trailspace honored me as the Reviewer of the Month in May 2016, they sent me a prize package made up of the “10 Essentials.” Included in… Full review

BugBaffler Insect Protective Headnet

rated 5 of 5 stars A no-see-um head net. Many of the woodsy areas around Chicago are restored wetlands which serve as a breeding and feeding habitat for wildlife, including mosquitos. During a four-hour hike I was not bitten once while wearing the head net. Combined with permethrin treated clothes it was a perfect system to thwart massive swarms of mosquitos. The head net fits over my full-brimmed Tilley hat and the elastic arm loops hold it in place. It fits in a pocket and the light weight makes it a no-brainer… Full review

All Terrain Herbal Armor

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is the only DEET-free bug spray I have found that is effective against the mosquitos and ticks in New England. However, it doesn't work well as you head farther south down the coast. I don't remember exactly when I first discovered Herbal Armor, but it is now the only insect repellant I carry when I'm in New England. It is, however, one of the few pieces of gear that I only carry in certain regions. While it has served me well on hikes throughout New England, it has failed me miserably every… Full review

Sea to Summit Escapist Ultra-Mesh Bug Tent

rated 2 of 5 stars Really wanted to love the large tarp + bug tent combo. Gave it 14 nights on the Tahoe Rim Trail — meadows, ridges, trees, granite, mud, wind, and rain. Sheds water like a duck. However, I'm just 5'1" and was unable to sit up under the head end except on nights where I was able to find a near perfect pitching site and didn't need to pitch low due to wind. In order to achieve full height and width at the head end of the inner tent, the front corners of the tarp have to be pitched high. This combo… Full review

Sea to Summit Escapist Ultra-Mesh Bug Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars A non-free standing shelter by design that works well with a variety of conditions and platforms. It can be pitched with a pair of trekking poles or in between two trees. It's a versatile shelter that can be used as a ground shelter or even as a hammock tarp. Since this is a modular system, the weight can be easily be distributed between two people. Best used for 3-season backpacking and can be used as a solo or 2-person shelter. Manufacturer Specs:… Full review
