For many, the start of summer symbolizes the commencement of several beloved outdoor activities including camping, hiking, kayaking, cycling, and so many more. But, as many outdoor enthusiasts know, it also marks the return of mosquitos and other pesky insects — and with that, legs and arms ridden with itchy, red bumps.

While packing your travel bag with bug spray seems like a no-brainer, popular brands and formulas often come with harsh, overpowering scents and sticky residues that leave you feeling uncomfortable until your next shower. Not to mention, travel-size sprays don't pack enough protection for longer trips or for family use, and it's not exactly always convenient to have to stop to spritz yourself down, especially when you're on the move. Luckily, Amazon shoppers have found the perfect solution just in time for summer: the Cliganic Mosquito Repellent Bracelet.

To buy: amazon.com, $10 (originally $12)

Created with portability in mind, the travel-friendly mosquito repellent bracelet mimics the shape of a hair elastic, easily slipping onto your wrist (or ankle) to enclose you in an invisible protective barrier against insects. But don't worry, it doesn't sacrifice performance to achieve its hassle-free design. It's formulated with a blend of bug-fighting geraniol, lemongrass, and citronella essential oils in place of chemicals like DEET.

The mosquito-repelling band is stretchy to accommodate different wrist sizes and is made of durable plastic — meaning it can be submerged in water without hindering its effectiveness, so you can bring it along on trips to the beach or lake. It's also designed to be reused; just store the bracelet in its airtight carrying bag in between uses to preserve its essential oil-fortified formula, which lasts up to 250 hours according to customer testimonials.

Another user was happy to report that the bracelets "have been working better than DEET" bug sprays on their hikes: "[I] haven't had to use bug spray since purchasing these.
