What experts liked

If you’re careful with the slightly more delicate can and avoid spraying it upside down too much, then the OFF! Deep Woods repellent is a top-notch pick.
- CNN underscored
The aerosol spray makes it easy to apply in a continuous sweeping motion.
- Road Affair

What experts didn't like

The regular Deep Woods is oily and smells pretty bad.
- The New York Times
The cap popped off in a bag during a day of hiking, and after some serious spraying (much of it upside down), the aerosol in the bottle ran out, resulting in a can that still has bug repellent in it with no way to get it out.
