I have the scent blocker dream season suit. While I'm not totally convinced the carbon clothing does what is advertised, that set of pants and jacket is the best bowhunting clothing I've ever owned. It's definately bowhunter friendly, and was designed with quite a bit of thought put into it. I've been wearing it, or another scent blocker suit I have all year, coupled with the X-Scent underlayer and have not been winded yet...and I've gad plenty of deer down wind. I know the X-scent works, but scent blocker, not sure.

Just my opinion.....

Not worth the money. I have taken plenty of deer and not needed a $200 carbon suit. Hunt the wind, wear rubber boots, and do your best to keep your clothes scent free and put your money towards something better. Look through an issue of Outdoorlife or some other magazine and look at the old pictures with the huge deer taken without all the gadgets we have today. I'm sure the scientist and marketing specialists will disagree with me...like I said just my opinion.

Nothing is 100%. But I use scent locker and believe in the stuff, you still have to hunt the wind though. It keeps the deer from getting too wary.I stated out with the liner system and graduated on up through my 2nd set and now have some bibs and jacket for the cold.And after 3misses this season on the last day of the reg season I got a 92lb doe big doe for the sj pines. I miised an 8 two days before her. She was the first deer in over 10 yrs of bowhunting that i missed and got a 2nd shot at. [smirk]

I use all scent lok apparel. They work for me. But they are not the magic pill either. You still have to be very scent conscience.

If you do nothing else, you should try the X-Scent underlayers. The shirt, pants and socks cost me a total of $31.00 at Harry's, and I'm telling you, the stuff works. I've worn them for several hunts in the heat this year, without washing, and they have no odor. 1 hour sweating in a regular long sleeve camo tee shirt and it gets funky. The X-Scent is not that expensive, and is worth every penny.

I use x scent underlayers,scentblocker base layers and scent blocker camo on the outside along with face mask and gloves.
I always try to hunt the wind also,although where i hunt it swirls alot i have even gone out with bad wind.
I have had deer in bow range pretty much everytime i have gone out just last saturday i had 5 big does come in directly down wind in 20 mph winds.
To me its worth it i put way to much time in to hunting so any advantage i can get helps.
Good luck

Thanks alot guys for all of your input. I do have the x-scent under clothing and I have found that it does help alot. I have been hunting now for 10 years and have never owned scent control clothing. I usually hunt the wind and use the old fashioned method of leaving my clothes outside and of course cover up scents. I thought for the price, What the he-- Ill try it out. I guess it can't hurt. I am not going to change my habits of hunting the wind though, like the advertisements say. I agree, there is nothing 100% scent free. See what hapens tomorrow night. Still waiting for my first harvest of the year!!
