Jungle Expedition Kit List

We advise that you treat your day clothing and hammock with a fit for purpose Permethrin or Cypermethrin spray, it will reduce insect landings by 45% and bites by over 90%.  If using for skin contact ensure Permethrin is diluted to no more than 0.5%. We try to avoid DEET based sprays as they can have a detrimental effect on your clothing and equipment, we currently use this only on exposed areas of skin.

 

All products mentioned are suggestions not compulsory and no commission is made from any sales.
