Protection against disease is paramount if you're heading for hot climates, and our Mosquito repellent sprays will deter mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and sandflies, all of which can cause life-threatening illnesses.
Insect repellents and mosquito repellents, along with Lifeventure mosquito nets, are a must for tropical travel.
The Lifesystems' spray-on bug repellents we stock here at Gear-Zone have all been designed in conjunction with doctors, expert medical advisors and mountain rescue services.

One bite from an infected mosquito is all it takes...
Each year, up to 2,000 travellers from Britain return home with some form of malaria. Untreated, it can be fatal - on average nine people every year die from malaria in this country.
The UK is, amazingly, one of the biggest importers of malaria among civilised countries, and yet it only takes a few simple steps to stop it happening at all.
The most severe form of malaria is Plasmodium Falciparum, which left untreated can be deadly as the mosquito's poison works its way into the bloodstream. Prevention though, is so very simple.
What To Do Before You Go
Seek professional advice before travelling. There is no vaccine against malaria, only anti-malarial tablets which must be taken before, during and after your visit. Talk to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist well in advance.
