Rated5out of5byADK ChristopherfromGood Stuff. ADK Christopher Approved.I have a terrible allergic reaction to DEET, so most insect repellant products are not available for me to use. Badger was recommended to me by a fellow adventurer as an effective alternative. I used it recently on 10 day ADK trip and it worked great against mosquitos, deer flies and black flies. It applies easily like a salve, smells good and you don't need a great deal for it to work. The only down side that I can see is that it comes in a shoe polish sized can which is bulky considering how much repellant you will actually need on any journey. I've found a small plastic pill case that I've packed with the repellant and it reduced the bulk and weight significantly while still keeping the product from getting all over my gear. Highly Recommended!
