Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for traveling These are great to have in your carry-on or flight bag when traveling to places with malaria or other mosquito carried diseases. Don't have to about showing them to the TSA when going through security. It's very handy to be able to apply it just before getting off the plane and not have to worry about getting over spray on the people around you. I also use it with the spray version to cover any areas I might have missed with the spray. Might have to use 2 wipes for an adult. Just depends on how much exposed skin you're trying to protect. If in doubt don't be cheap. Use the extra wipe. It's a lot cheaper then getting malaria. Just remember to wash your hands before rubbing your eyes. It stings for a little bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works For Me I've used these wipes a few times now..I brought DEET along in case things got ugly..but no all good..keeps the pests off..I mostly used them in the deep woods of Colorado..not one bite..won't hurt equipment..smell is not too bad..I even wipe down the dog where he can't lick..you can use the spent cloth as a fire starter.. {:^)>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I used this repellent in conjunction with picaridin-based wipes on a two-day Inca Trail/Machu Picchu hike, which included one night of camping in the jungle. I did not get a single bite in spots where I applied this product (I got a couple on my back in an area I forgot to spray). Others on my hike tried natural repellents and got eaten alive within our first half hour of hiking, so I was extremely grateful I had this one. All-in-all, I was extremely happy with this product and would readily recommend it to others and use it again myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't have to worry about about mosquitoes I used this while camping for a week, including the Crater Lake campground, which has squadrons of mosquitoes, thanks to melting snow and standing water. While using the Natrapel, I did not get bit once. They're easy to toss into a pocket and carry around, so you don't forget your repellant. And, no big cloud of spray - it goes where you put it. I do wish it came in a slightly larger towel, but it was still worth using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hikes Picaridin is known effective and doesn't 'melt' plastics; 8 hour protection is long enough. The packets are small, fit anywhere, so you can take a handful along without risk of spilling, using only what you need and having the rest for next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ineffective These don't seem to work, at least on the mosquitoes I've encountered
