Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice for little ones This is a great idea for little ones that you don't want to spray insecticide on. August 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far, so good...worth a try. Bought these for my daughter who was spending the summer in  the New Hampshire mountains. She was suffering extreme bites and not having luck with deet based repellants. Also, we did not want the risks associated with deet. The bracelets  have lessened the bites, although still a few. She must wear them around the clock and since they  last about 5 days,  if they continue to work, I will reorder.  She is also using a Badger Repellant stick, a natural balm, which has helped. I am hoping Gaiam will offer the bracelets in a larger package (10 or 20 bracelets at a discounted price per bracelet. I have seen larger packages offered elsewhere.  I will be trying these bracelets myself in a month when I visit. Sure hope they work for me, too. July 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worked great! We purchased these items for our family vacation to Yellowstone National Park. My daughter is usually a mosquito magnet, but these wristbands helped greatly and she was not bothered at all! July 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maybe I imagined it... I'm pregnant so I can't use any regular mosquito repellant and after I read the instructions and warnings on those Off! clip ons, those were out too. These things are awesome. I wear two at a time, I put one on my wrist and one on the opposite ankle, for not having any chemicals in them they work great. Mosquitos would come close but I'd wave my hand and they'd take off. The trick seems to be to move around enough to keep the fragrance circulating around you. I almost didn't buy them because of how much they are, but I'm really glad I did. I thought for sure I'd regret it. It's nice to finally find an effective mosquito repellant that isn't like putting poison directly on you. October 22, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works better than any other product for mosquitos! My 2 year old is extremely sensitive to mosquitos - they will bite him day & night, even if he is outside for 2 minutes only! We don't want to use harmful or questionable chemical products, and have tried an assortment of natural products and oils - even some made for Africa from a friend who visits there! There is NOTHING available that we have found better than this product - and so easy - we can put it on his ankle, or even on a backpack he is in or on his back belt loop, etc. Our whole family now wears one when going outside!!! It is nice to know it is geranium oil derived, and is even waterproof for children running under sprinklers, swimming, etc! July 26, 2010

Answer: 
They are water resistant as far as wearing them while you're washing your hands. I would avoid submerging them (swimming) for extended periods of time. If you going to be swimming I would take them off but if they aren't being submerged they are fine.
