comment What type of mosquito repellent is most effective?
By the way I tested this out in April, in the south of Vietnam, and it is reasonably effective, in the sense that in particular bad areas it is similar to other products and has limited scope to repel. I personally prefer to use something like this because of my eczema.

comment What type of mosquito repellent is most effective?
It is difficult to find any independent review as it is a relatively new product and is marketed really for midges and ticks in Scotland. Gearweare (gearweare.com/review/smidge) have a review of the product but they do not go into effectiveness specifically on mosquitoes. There are a few forum posts as well. I'll let you know how effective it is!
