    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Sawyer Permethrin Pump Spray - 24 rated4.6667out of5by3.
    Rated5out of5byfromgreatest product I've foundI've used this product to spray my clothing and equipment for trips to mosquito and tick infested areas. It lasts for up to 6 weeks and is the most effective product I have found--also, it keeps the bug spray off my body. Follow directions and don't get it on your skin and don't wear clothing before it dries. I have used it as a preventative (on hats, sleeping bags, bedliners,etc) for head lice and bedbugs and have never had a problem with either, despite extensive travel in Africa and Asia. I recoat my suitcase after every US hotel stay as well.Great product--but don't spray it on your gear in a closed space.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis is magical stuff!!!Permethrin is safe for humans and works great for treating clothing (not skin). It does have a nasty smell when wet, but once dry has no smell. I use this product to treat all my clothing/gear and find the product is dry in 15-20 minutes. The magical thing about permethrin is 1) its durability to stay attached to clothing even after several washings and 2) how effective it is at keeping bugs away. Bugs fly onto my clothing and instantly fly away. Permethrin should not be your only bug defense. Use this with a skin contact repellant and bugs should not be a bother.

    Rated4out of5byfromThis can be used as a soak too!Here's something you may not know- Sawyer used to sell a permethrin soak kit, that's pretty tough to track down these days. Something else you might not know- this spray solution is exactly the same stuff. I got two of these spray bottles and soaked all of my gear for a two week trek in a five gallon bucket with an equal amount of water, and it seemed to do the trick. Even in the Peruvian Amazon I only got bitten where my skin was exposed. The downside is the stuff stinks when being applied. Once it dries there's no smell at all, but when you hang up your stuff to dry out it reeks. I'm not convinced this stuff is entirely non-toxic, but just like DEET, it sure beats malaria or yellow fever.
