Offering DEET in its purest form, Sawyer MAXI-DEET is ideal for defending yourself from mosquitoes, chiggers, fleas, gnats, and ticks in areas of extreme bug density.
With its high potency, MAXI-DEET gives you more control on how much you apply and requires fewer re-applications (compared to other lower-dosage DEET aerosol sprays).
Offering up to 10 hours of protection, MAXI-DEET can also be safely used on mosquito nets, head nets, and clothing made of cotton, wool, or nylon.
Maximize protection from mosquitoes and ticks by combining MAXI-DEET topical repellent with Sawyer’s Permethrin insect repellent for clothing and gear to create an effective insect barrier.
Sawyer is an advocate of using DEET in its purest form for optimized protection in areas of extreme bug density. When you use a 30% DEET in an aerosol spray can, you’ll actually be left with 100% DEET on your skin after all the alcohol dissipates.
Starting with the 100% DEET formula in Sawyer’s MAXI-DEET enables you to use a smaller dosage from the start and provides you more control over how much you apply. With its 10-hour effectiveness, you won’t have to reapply MAXI-DEET as often as you would a lower percentage dosage. You’ll also be able to carry around less bulk and weight.
Sawyer MAXI-DEET is available in a variety of sizes including our airline friendly 3-ounce pump spray and a day-pack friendly 0.5-ounce spray tube.
