Use scent free soap and try to use the wind in your favor when all possible.
activated carbon does absorb odors, so clothing with activated carbon can absorb odors, the problem lies in the fact that it can't do that forever . . . after all of the activated carbon has attracted and captured odor molecules, it no longer works . . . so, immediately after manufacture, the clothing will work for a while and then stop . . . if its been sitting in a store for a few months, is it already toast? Some manufacturers claim you can reactivate it by putting it in a dryer, I'm not so sure about that . . . some of my clothing is scent-guard type clothing, but I play the wind and assume that the clothing doesn't work
It might work for a little while but I personally wouldn't spend the extra money for a feature that might work.
Works for Scent Blocker in that it makes them money. As a long time sailor I have perfected the habit of always knowing where the wind is coming from. Wind direction dictates hunting tactics.
Worthless as t*ts on a boar
Nothing is full proof. I use a little of the stuff since it is so damn expensive. I also use silver lined clothing which kills bacteria. I always wash down in scent free, scent killing soap, wear the fancy magical garments, and play the wind. It's all you can really do.
Closer to hoax than really working.
I dont have any of it. I wash my clothes in scent free tide, then dry them outside. Spray them down good with scent killer, let em dry again. then put them in scentless garbage bags and store in a plastic tub. I don't have any problems with deer downwind of me. HOAX
I've been given some items with it but never bought the jacket, pants, etc. so I can't make any comparisons. You just can't ignore the wind and be consistently successful.
It works, but not to the point that you can depend on it. I tried it for a couple of seasons and went back to doing it like Bioguy, playing the wind. I think it's overrated and too expensive. Like many others, I wash myself and my laundry in scent-free soap and watch which way the wind is blowing from.
Can't afford it, but I wash my cloths in baking soda, dirt cheap and works great. Works well for me and I never have to worry about uv brighteners if that really matters anyway.
Watch the wind and save acouple bucks.
