Florida-based SAWYER has been helping protect and save lives since the early 80’s. The company’s early mission and focus was on specialty outdoor adventure first aid kits including transport gear like splints and braces, essential staples for every wilderness warrior.

“Safety is a priority for everyone, from moms to mountain trekkers”

Every SAWYER product you buy helps fuel the mission of clean water for all. SAWYER helps provide clean water through its filtration systems to those in need through its partnership with 140 charities around the world.

All SAWYER products are fabulous and unique finds. I am already working on my birthday, special occasion and holiday gift lists.  

Practical purchases for friends and family definitely win out especially when items have the element of coolness (bet you don’t have this vibe) combined with a charity component. And, don’t forget to gift yourself.

For the travel or outdoor enthusiast, a “extractor pump kit” for a snake, bee or wasp bite or a mini-travel water filtration adaptor might just come in handy one day.

And, for everyday summer safety, whether home or away, SAWYER’s sunscreen and insect repellent are my trusty companions.

SAWYER’s outdoor dynamic duo, is different in several critical and convenient ways. First off, there is no worry about mixing it up; the products are designed to work in harmony.  

Tip: Apply the sunscreen first and allow to dry. Follow with repellent.

Each product excels on its own power, effectively fighting against harmful rays and potentially devasting and deadly bites.

Tested with proven results, SAWYER Stay-Put SPF sunscreen is ready to battle the elements. So much so, SAWYER sunscreen was a top pick by the US Military in Desert Storm. SAWYER Stay-Put SPF sunscreen uses a non-greasy formula that penetrates deep into skin layers, where other sun blocks simply can’t reach.

Fast Facts:

Maximum Protection: SAWYER Stay-Put SPF is engineered to be effective when combined with SAWYER insect repellents.

Bonding Penetration: While most sunscreens hold their lotions in the top two layers of skin, SAWYER STAY-PUT SPF uses a special technology to bond the sun ray absorbing agents deeper into the skin.

Breathable Mix: Enriched with aloe vera and vitamins, SAWYER STAY-PUT SPF is recommended for most uses, and a single application penetrates deep into your skin for sun protection. Fragrance-free and free of Avobenzone, Paraben and Dimethicone.

Available online or at outdoor retailers like Camping World

Suggested Retail: $13.99 (8 oz lotion)

SAWYER’s Insect Repellent is no slacker either.

SAWYER insect repellent with Picaridin, an effective alternative to DEET, is safe to use on the entire family.

The repellent offers long lasting powerful protection when you need it most.

SAWYER Picaridin topical spray is effective for up to 12 hours against mosquitoes and ticks and up to 14 hours for the lotion. And, the shelf life is up to 10 years.

May marks the start of summer play, but is also Lyme Disease Awareness Month. A strong reminder to stay safe. One tick bite can change your life forever.

Fast Facts:

Family Friendly: SAWYER Picaridin is safe for use during pregnancy and on children as young as six months of age.

Trusted Ingredients: Derived from piperine in pepper plants, SAWYER Picaridin is a synthetic replica of a natural solution and is highly effective as a repellent.

Low Odor: The non-greasy spray and lotion have a pleasant low odor that evaporates when dry.

Long Lasting: Picaridin spray is effective for up to 12 hours against mosquitoes and ticks, while the lotion is effective for up to 14 hours. Both provide up to 8 hours of protection against biting flies, gnats, chiggers, and sand flies.

Gear Safe: Picaridin is safe for use on clothing, backpacks, synthetic fabrics, watches, sunglasses, and won’t damage plastics or synthetic coatings

ECO Friendly: SAWYER’S BOV (bag on valve) continuous spray contains no propellants like an aerosol, so you get more repellent and limit the propellants in the environment.

Maximum Protection: Can be used in tandem with SAWYER Permethrin Fabric Treatment for ultimate protection from the elements.
