So where do you get a dryer that can get to 1500 degrees F without burning the garments to cinders?
not sure I'm tracking Woods, but here it is straight from the MFG...
Q: "I've heard it takes over 900° to reactivate a Scent-Lok suit, is that true?"
A: No. Adsorption occurs in two distinctly different ways; chemisorption and physical adsorption. In Scent-Lok garments the human odor enters the activated carbon pores and typically forms a physical bond. This bond is called van der Waals interaction and the bonds break in a household dryer allowing for another round of adsorption.
High temperatures and energy are required to break chemically bonded molecules. Chemical adsorption occurs when two molecules create a very strong covalent bond (the type of bond that creates water from hydrogen and oxygen) and needs extreme energy and heat to separate (900° and beyond) if it is even possible.
Could the mfg be full of it? Perhaps, but I've heard testimony from several here and elsewhere that swear by it...and if it saves me $60/ season worth of scent eliminator in the process, so much the better!
My brother and I both have the Scentblocker Dreamseason suits. I've had mine for 2 years now and he's had his for 1 season. I love them! Super quit and the most comfortable camo I've ever worn. No problems at all with durability, they stand up to alot. Put over 250 hrs in mine so far and absolutely no complaints. I've hunted in rain, sleet, and snow and I stay dry and warm.
The pockets are designed for bowhunting as well as the front zipper. The pants pockets have a zipper on the side of the pocket so when your sitting down the access is right there which is more convenient than you may think!
Before I bought the scentblocker suit I bought scentloks full season suit and after shooting my bow with them and trying them out in different scenarios(its alot of money so I tested them) I just didn't like the way they fit and I ended up taking them back and going with scent blocker.
