Coleman SkinSmart

I have a ton of Coleman gear, all of which is for my camping rig.  Ovens, lanterns, tents, coolers…  Now I have a Coleman product for my golf bag!

One of my three home courses is at a low point in the valley.  Several creeks and a river run through the course.  Most of the holes are very “swampy.”

With that much water and heavy vegetation, there are a ton of bugs and gazillions of mosquitoes.  Three rounds ago I apparently provided many insects a good dinner, and I had some nice itchy welts the next day.

I had forgotten that I put my new Coleman SkinSmart insect repellent in the bag previously, but after all the itching I remembered the next round at the swamp.

This Coleman repellent comes in a container not much thicker or bigger than a sharpie and stores easily in a golf bag.  Even better than the convenient size, is the fact that it has a squirt nozzle on the top.  This is very helpful for golfers.  I don’t want slippery hands from applying bug repellent and having to use my hands to spread it.  The repellent lasts for eight hours, just enough for an infuriating round at a muni course.

What does “deet free” mean?  I didn’t know until I did this piece.  Deet is short for Diethyl-meta-toluamide, which is the most common ingredient in insect repellents.  But deet can be harmful if ingested so deet-free is especially good for children.

Conclusion

The Coleman SkinSmart bug repellent is small, convenient, easy to apply and doesn’t interfere with good golf scores.  Add it to the “in the bag” list.
