Has anyone checked out the UV Protect with Insect Shield from BUFF Sports as an alternative to lathering up with that foul chemical ?

Funny thing, this article states that a lot of people just do not use Deet. I dislike Deet for all the obvious reasons too, but there are certain places and seasons that mosquitos can make a mornings fishing rather crummy. The article points out a couple alternatives, but alternatives have never held up to skeeters. Has anyone found alternatives to work where these new imune mosquitos live?

I like permethrin.... good for quite a few washings too before it has to be reapplied
