I'll go.:D

#1: Scentblocker,Scentlok,X-static

#2: I haven't purchased anything.I won a Scentblocker/Dream Season suit from Drury last season.

#3: It was free.:D It does have some great features.I like the pockets and how it seals around my boots and wrists.The built in arm guard doesn't work worth a squat for me because my cable catches on it when I draw.I'm not totally hooked on the carbon thing, and I doubt I would have ever spent the kind of money they are going for for a carbon suit.

#4: I would say both as long as there was proof that they work the way they're supposed to.

Kind of feel the same way, so I had to give in and buy some scent lok gear this year to see for myself on some deals that were kind of hard to pass up anyways.

The garments are only part of the scent control game though. It's starts with scent elimination showering, washing your under garments with a scent elimination cloths wash, and anything else you can do to reduce your scent profile before you ever put the garment on. There's also proper storage of your scent control garments and scent elimination products for anything you take to the stand to consider too. If you don't go full bore with your scent control/elimination plan your wasting your money on scent control apparel IMHO. ;)

I deer hunt a lot and sometimes it just not possible to always be downwind. by using scent lok and staying as scent free as possible it allows me to get away with a marginal wind.

i just bought the Full Season ScentLok pants, jacket and hood in Realtree HD AP and they are so comfortable to use and very bowhunter friendly. being able to get to full draw without making any noise is also a huge advantage of using the Full Season gear.

I've never even seen any here in the shops

see above response

Whatever works.

I currently wash my hunting cloths in Baking soda, and pay attention to the wind direction.

I also use a spray cover scent for my hands, face, hair and hat called "YUKON GRADICATOR". It's a human scent eliminator.

It's the only one I've seen that doesn't have a skin contact warning on it, and it seems to work well, because I have had deer within poking range.

I would like to see more scent eliminator sprays, that are safe to use on your skin !!

4. I believe that these products may work, but I have never seen the need to spend the ridiculous amounts of money to get them. If you practice proper scent control with your body and clothes, you will be an effective, scent-free hunter. I've killed deer at 10 yards while wearing shorts and a t-shirt. It's just another gimmick to get your money in my opinion.

For 7 years I've used scent free soaps along with the same brand cover scents. I've always wanted a carbon based suit and got one last year. I still do the same scent free program that I did before I got the suit minus the dirt smelling cover and I honestly can't say that the suit is any better.
