DEET only works to block the receptor sensors on most mosquitoes. it is not a 'repellant' despite the package claims (think: "motor" oil). it does not have much affect on midges, blackflies, deerflies, or ticks. its amazing what some goofballs think you can 'repel' with it... "hey this stuff even works on mice" etc...
one of the things im going to add to my kit is a keychain LED light, instead of bringing heavy, extra batteries... i suggest you bring a spare light source instead. here's one that weighs dang near nothin' and is very bright for its size: http://www.rei.com/product/731177

+1 I always have a bandanna. On Friday, I used it to dry my hands after throwing snowballs, and Saturday I used it with my visor to make a coool fashionable hat to keep the sun off my neck.
