insect / midge repellent that works?
For those of you who don't visit BcUK often, I recently discovered the joys of Smidge, a midge repellent from the makes of "The Scottish Midge Forecast"

Also the waterproof thing is a bit of hit and miss depending on what you're doing, and since everyone on here is often playing out on the water, or getting sweaty paddleing the waterproof thing becomes important, expecially if you are playing up this neck of the woods, or other midge infested lochs.
Whats you're views?
