    I've used every anti-bug product over the years, even the ineffectual "lemongrass and eucalyptus oil" or "citronella" type products. Let's be honest: if you hike, live in the country, or just go outside these days, you will be eaten alive by mosquitos and you will pick up ticks and (in the South) chiggers and at the beach, sandfleas. The more DEET in the products you use, the less likely you are to get bitten, which means you're less likely to pick up diseases carried by these nasties (not to mention you can avoid the itchiness and pain of bites). Also, studies have shown that the percentage of DEET in a product directly correlates to how long the product lasts/works following application. Deep Woods Off has 25% DEET, while REPEL has 40%. Ergo, you don't have to spray as often. Most family and kid sprays have only single digit percentages of DEET - if they contain DEET at all. (Important note: you don't have to coat your skin with DEET for it to work. I always wear socks, shoes, and long pants when outside hiking/gardening, so I simply spray my shoes, socks and lower legs thoroughly. In the evening when mosquitos are out, I also spray my arms lightly and pat a few drops onto my neck.) I really cannot recommend REPEL enough - it's all I will buy now. Lastly, REPEL uses almost every drop in the aerosol can, unlike OFF. Our aerosol cans of OFF and other brands always leaves a significant amount in the bottle once the propellant is gone, but with REPEL you really do get your money's worth. I wish this brand had the same brand recognition as OFF, because it's getting harder to find.

    not happy

    I bought 2 bottles of the repellent and only one worked. The other cap was broken and I was on vacation out of the country so i couldn't exchange it.

      Comments about Repel Insect Repellent, Sportsmen Max, 40% Deet, 6.5 oz:

      This product contains 40% Deet, which is a higher
      concentrate than most products. I've used just about all the sprays on the market and this one works best.
