Beware of insect repellent containing DEET

From technical wear to insect repellant, there’s more to equipment than the camera and lens. Share what works for you and ask questions to solve your tough problems.

I've found a good way to do it so the DEET doesnt touch my bare skin is to spray a napkin or off wet-wipe style repellent, and then clip it to my jacket or the back of my wide brimmed hat.

That way the DEET is on the piece of fabric and not on myself.

Great info on the plastic stuff and I'll make a mental note of that

that is a good way to prove that a stolen piece of equipment is really yours. All they have to do is match the finger prints.
