I've been using it every season since May of 2007. My original hammock (Warbonnet ElDorado) is still going strong. It took the abuse of an AT almost-thru (GA-VT) and near constant application of Permethrin. I treat all of my hammocks every year at least twice. My quilts are treated, my packs, my webbing, by tarp lines, and all my clothing except the skivvies. I've never seen any damage or premature wear on any of my high tech clothing or hammock materials. I use the Sawyer brand.
I love Permethrin! It kills spiders and that's reason enough for me.
