It Works
I know there are some people who would rather die of malaria than use 100% DEET but I'm guessing that most of them have not hiked through the Sierra during prime mosquito season. When we hiked the PCT, almost everyone, including those who said they would never use DEET, used it at least some of the time. We went through a swampy valley, I think it was at the start of Yosemite where the mosquitoes were so bad, even with a headnet they almost drove us crazy. And they bite through clothes as well. 100% DEET saved the day!

Good stuff
Works well at keeping the little critters off of you. Its' a must when hiking around in early spring when mosquito season is at it's worst. The sticky and oily residue it leaves would be my only complaint. But, that's better than being bitten by a hundred hungry mosquitos.
