Which Scent Lok Jacket and pants should I get for early to late season

14 posts in this topic

My wife gave me the go ahead on some new camo and I would like to bite the bullet and buy either scentlok or a scentblocker two piece suit.

I have looked at the full season and also the Bowhunter one cant remember the exact name and I've also been looking at the dream season suit by scent blocker just cant figure out if one is better than the other.

I would like something with a lighter pattern if possible or just something like the realtree AP camo or predator if they make that in scent lok that would be awesome.

So if you could help me get pointed in the right direction I would greatly appreciated and I would prefer not to spend much more than 225.00 on a set or maybe a little more wink

In my opinion, I would not waste your money. There have been studies that show these products are not as good as you think. Buy some decent camo and wash in scent free soap and keep in a sealed container and you will be ahead a lot of money.

just my 2c

I also agree. I have been using the same ol camo for fifteen years just keep them washed and contained. I dont get busted too often. Play the wind and keep as scent free as possible.

Spend the money on another stand. gl

Not to sound like a jerk, but I think the original poster asked which Scent control clothes people recommended for early season, not -what is your opinion of the value of using scent control clothes.

To answer your question, I've used just my base layers when it is almost too hot to be sitting in a tree. My buddy really like his ClimaFlex Savannah stuff. I believe Cabelas is having a pretty good sale this weekend, if you are out that way.

I just purchased the Scent Blocker Dream Season Pro and it is very nice. It has a zip out wool liner so it will keep you warm during the colder days. The shell is decent for warmer days as I was comfortable in the stand on Monday night (with only a t-shirt under the jacket)and the temps were in the upper 60's low 70's here. I also use the Scentblocker outfitter and that is a little bit warmer but is waterproof and also features a zip out liner. The dream season pro has a lot of nice pockets and some pretty cool straps in the front for calls, binos, range finder etc.

Good Luck!

I have two sets of scent lok clothing. I just got a flyer from cabelas and some of it is on sale right now. I have a pair of savannah pants, and their silent weave jacket. I paid under $100 bucks for both together (end of season bargain cave, online so it was new stuff). I plan on using this stuff for the early archery season. I am not that impressed with the savannah, it is estremely light but has almost a plasticy feel to it.

I also have a techH2O suit with scentlok from Gander mountain. I got this stuff 5 years ago and it is awesome. It will be similar to cabelas MTO50 and their rain suede. It is a little bit warm for temps above 60, but I will layer right through fire arm season with this stuff, its awesome. I love it or I wouldn't have bought more in January.

This is my 3rd season hunting and last year I went for the baselayers by scentlok so I can put whatever pattern I choose over top of them.

Have you ruled out the silver thread stuff that you see at Fleetfarm and Dick's? My understanding is that stuff has come a looong way and works just as well. Medalist is one of the brand names to look for- I have one of their shirts.

Good luck out there!

I've been looking into the x scent garments they claim no generation is needed? Sportsmans Guide has a pretty good buy on them also.

GoldTIp, not bashing the clothes or your post, I just don't think they give you the edge people think they are getting. In my opnion from reading the proffesional studies, you are paying a lot of money for a name on the shirt! Just trying to help ya out! Good luck and I hope that Scent Lok outfit gets you that big Buck,LOL!!

I just bought the Gander mtn brand, with the scent lok liner.. Its light enough to wear in the early season, and I bought it big enough to pile on the clothes underneath when that time comes, pretty good price as far as it goes, $230 for the jacket and pants- good luck on ur search, its fun to look around!

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
