Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellant Pump Spray

Item #: 81336

Our Price: $14.99


Developed in cooperation with the U.S. Military, government agencies, universities, and others; this Sawyer® Permethrin Clothing Repellent offers superior protection from disease-carrying biting insects. The active ingredient, Permethrin, is a synthetic molecule similar to those found in natural pyrethrum which is taken from the Chrysanthemum flower. Not only does this product repel insect, but will actually kill ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites and more than 55 other kinds of insects. Sawyer® Permethrin insect repellents are for use with clothing, tents, and other gear. A single application lasts 6 washings. Permethrin is odorless when dry, and during the drying process, it tightly bonds with the fibers of the treated garment.This product is to be used as a clothing treatment only. It will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces, or any of your outdoor gear. This product must not be applied to clothing while it is being worn. Under no circumstances should bare skin or clothing while on the body be treated. Avoid skin and eyes. 24 Fl oz.

    Light and Lasting

    By HikingDude

    from Minnesota

    Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellant Pump Spray:

    I treated my hiking shorts, shirt, and hat with Permethrin before my 1,100-mile hike on the Ice Age Trail last summer.  For 50 days across Wisconsin, I had no ticks.  Near the end of my hike, I switch shirts to one I had not treated.  Guess what!  My first tiny deer tick found me. I like this form of insect repellent because it is applied once and useful for a season.  That means it adds no weight and doesn't get my skin slimey.

    Great on keeping away Tsetse flies in Uganda

    By doradokiller

    from Whiting, Indiana, United States

    Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellant Pump Spray:

    Bought a bottle a few days before my fishing adventure to Uganda. Tsetse flies are normally unbearable; however, they hardly bothered us at all due to the Permethrin Insect Repellent sprayed on our clothing. Thanks Sawyer!

      Before a week long trip into the hinterlands, I spray down my clothes on the outside, plus bottom 10" inside of shirt tails, pant legs, and shirt sleeves. Also, around entry ways of tent or hammock.
      Myself and other campers in primitive areas, swear by the product.

        A great product to use if you are frequently active outdoors and don't want to be spraying bug spray all the time. We use it in Southwest Florida for mosquitoes and chiggers and in the Adirondacks for Black Flies, mosquitoes and ticks.

          Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellant Pump Spray:

          Can take awhile to dry in humid weather. Ideal application is inside a garage - outdoor, but protected from breeze. No smell, no stickiness, lasts for 6 weeks or 6 washings. Reduces need to use repellents on self, which may make it good to use for children's clothes. Great to keep ticks from crawling up treated socks. Can also use on fabric or leather (think shoes or boots)!

              Sprayed pants, shirts, hats, socks etc for trip to mosquito-heavy area of Alaska. The treated clothing did not seem to keep 100% of the mosquitos at bay - but it had an appreciable effect and I never got bitten through any item of clothing that had been treated. Application was easy - I did make a point of wearing rubber gloves, which seemed wise as a small amount of the product did run down off the nozzle. Very pleased with this product and plan on using it again for future trips.

                    I used this on my clothes before a 3 day hike. It kept the bugs away. You have to use it ahead of time it has to dry on the clothes and you cant get it on your skin. But its worth the effort.

                      • Q:

                        Is this product actually dangerous to get on skin? I have been told that permethrin should not be used on skin because body oils render it ineffective rather quickly. I can accept that it is useless as a repellant on skin, but would really like to know if it will damage skin.
