Pros: Easy To Apply

Cons: Not effective

I used this a few weeks ago on a back country camping trip near Shoshone Lake in Yellowstone. In areas where there were small amounts of mosquitoes it worked pretty well, however the bugs around the lake are very very thick, and this stuff is almost useless. It kept most of the pests at bay but I was still continually harassed.

It wasn't durable at all. One application lasted maybe an hour at most. I was constantly having to put on more.

I'm not the biggest fan of DEET but a higher concentration works way better. My buddy had a spray that was 98% DEET, and that's what kept us alive during the trip.
