Thermacell Backpacker MR-BP Mosquito Repeller- Amazon Deal
Thermacell has released a Gen 2.0 version of the Backpacker MR-BP mosquito Repeller. As a result, the price on the Gen 1.0 model has dropped drastically. You can read the reviews to see the need for improvement. In my opinion, at these prices, it’s worth the trying out the Gen 1.0 model. If you aren’t satisfied, you can return it to Amazon.
Spring is right around the corner, which means spring turkey, spring bear, camping, and mosquitoes. Thermacell has added a new device to their line of mosquito repellent appliances and I think it could be a game changer. The Thermacell Backpacker model runs on a camping fuel canister for up to 90 hours. This might not work for a treestand, but it’s perfect for hunting out of a blind or on the ground. It would be easy to leave the appliance in your permanent hunting blind. Of course, this will work for backcountry hunters as well. It runs on the butane or propane you already have for your stove. It’s a luxury item that could make your backcountry trip much more enjoyable. Amazon has the best price on the Backpacker appliance. It retails for $39.99, but I’ve seen it as low as $27.95 from “other sellers”. You can buy your refills there as well.
Here are the refill kits for the Thermacell Backpacker units.
