I just bought a RoadTrips set off ebay, The guy used it once and the set was a little tight on him so he ebayed it. Question number 1. Does this stuff really work and how do I care for it. Question 2. How do I reactive the carbon. Thanks BH

YES. All of there suits are awesome. I have some that are 5 or 6 maybe even 7 years old and not rips or tears. They make some awesome products. I have killed deer that has came in down wind but I have also been busted plenty of times. The way I see it is if you get away with it 1 out of 10 times that is better than none. Heck it maybe that bruiser you have been hunting all year. As far taking care of it step one is to wash it as soon as you get in scent free detergent. Step two if you can line dry it that is best but if not use the drier with out any scented drier sheets. Then every time you plan to hunt throw it in the drier again with out any scented drier sheet for about 30 min. Take them out put them on and spray down and go hunting. The only time I wash them agian is if I killed a deer and there is blood on them or It was hot as heck and I could not stop sweating. You will love there products the first time you get away with it. Just remember it does not work every time, the key is to make the deer think that you are farther away than you really are. Good luck with it.

The guide hit it on the head pretty much.Only thing I suggest is you don't have to put it in the drier everytime if you have a storage bag for it.But I know that during the early bow season it's kinda warm and you get to sweating.Another thing don't put it on until right before you head in the woods,Keep it sealed,I don't put my jacket on until after I'm in the stand,I will sit there and cool off for a few minutes and then put it on,And spray down again. I hate seeing people go out and spend their hard earned money on these suits,Wake up put them on and get in their vehicle? Then ask why don't they work? Good luck to ya,If you treat them right they will treat you right. BE SAFE

It is GOOD but you have to use total scent control. Head, hands, boots all your gear, everything. Cant just throw on a scent blocker jacket and think your good to go. But if you make the effort to eliminate as much scent as possible by spraying everything down, storing everything in scent tight bags, showering before every hunt, still hunt the wind and all the little things you will see a big difference. I even make sure i dry off after a shower with a towel that was washed in my scent free detergent. It can be a pain but you will see a difference.

I agree with CA 100%. Its a lot of work, but since I have stepped up my scent control game, including wearing scent control clothing, and just ooverall care,,,rubber boots, rubber scent containers for your clothes buy em at Wal Mart, and do not forget.....YOUR BREATH.....

Most will get busted because of their breath and never realize it. Yo are better to chew gum with a fresh mint scent then to go out with stank butt breath.. It amazes me how people will disregard that aspect of scent control..

So wash up, lock up, rubber up, brush up and floss up...

Thats the Dream Catcher Outdoors "Tip of the Week"

Thanks for all the tips guys, I have always washed my non carbon hunting gear in unscented wash soap and line dried it and put it in a scent lok bag and I never put my clothes on until I was out of my truck ready to walk to stand. So from what I hear on WA and what I do already this scent blocker stuff should really work for me. Thanks BH

It works as long as you take the proper steps before hand. You have gotten a lot of great advice.

some great advice there. I hear a lot of skeptics of the scent blocker/scent lok brands saying that it dont totally eliminate your scent. The way I look at it is that if it helps some, then it helps!!!! I will be geared up in my scent blocker this season!!!

These are the same guys that don't shower before every hunt, spray down before every hunt and you still have to hunt smart and try and stay down wind of them. There is nothing in this world that will totaly eliminate the human odor(at least not right now). But like you said if you can gain an edge at all it is better than nothing. Just my opinion.

Did you know that household dryers don't generate enough heat to actually reactivate the carbon?The heat needed to reactivate the carbon would actually melt the fabric that the SB clothes are made from.I think there was a bunch of law suits against SB and SL about this.Anyone know anything about this?I've read some of the suits and articles about it and I must say I am a bit skepticle about the carbon suits now.I'll still wear my SB suit and spray down but as usual play the wind.

Haven't heard anything about it. I know everytime something new comes out there are allways going to be people who start a bunch of BS about it. You have to do you own research and don't believe 80% of what you see on the internet. I believe it works and helps alot but thats my opinion and I wear it religously but like it's been said before you still need to take all the other precautions to eliminate as much scent as possible before you even put scent eliminating clothing on.
