Skeeter Hawk Mosquito Repellent

What sets it apart?

Picnics, hiking, camping, fishing — nothing disrupts outdoor fun like pesky mosquitoes. Spray-on repellents offer one option, but the downsides include messy overspray, an unpleasant “bug spray” smell and the need to keep a bottle or can handy. Skeeter Hawk presents a couple of handy tools for keeping those biting insects at bay: A repellent wristband and a carabiner clip. Both combat mosquitoes with an all-natural mixture of essential oils. Irritating to bugs, nearly imperceptible to humans, Skeeter Hawk’s formula does the job without the common repellent drawbacks.

How do I use it?

The lightweight wristband is made of durable water- and tear-resistant material and features an adjustable hook-and-loop enclosure. The sizing allows ample room for a wide range of wrist sizes and also works as an ankle band. The carabiner is easily operated with one hand and fits onto various straps, belt loops, zippers, etc. Both the wristband and carabiner include two replaceable tabs that last up to 30 days. Reflective accents add a safety element for after-dark walking, cycling, boating, etc.

David’s insight:

The packaging includes product info and instructions on the inside, so don’t miss that panel. Product use is actually pretty straightforward, but adding the repellent tab isn’t clearly noted or intuitive. A brief inspection revealed the insertion slit adjacent to the mesh panel. The fit is understandably tight to prevent the tab from slipping out, so it’ll take a little bit of wiggling and sliding to fit the tab. The wristband fit is smooth and comfortable, while the carabiner’s lightweight, slim design easily fit onto my YETI backpack handle with less presence than a luggage tag.
