scent-lok

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ....................
ALS Enterprises, Inc., owners and marketer of the Scent-LokŪ brand of scent control hunting apparel, has claimed a major victory in the long-standing class action lawsuit that challenged the products’ ability to control human odor. After four years of litigation, which was brought by a group of five Minnesota hunters, a federal appeals court issued its decision on August 18, rejecting plaintiffs’ core allegations and overturning an injunction issued last year.


Among other things, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit noted that evidence introduced in the district court showed that carbon-containing hunting clothing dramatically outperformed non-carbon clothing at adsorbing odors: “Defendants’ expert, Dr. Hartman, conducted quantitative permeation testing and estimated that Defendants’ products ‘blocked’ ninety-six to ninety-nine percent of odor compounds, whereas non-carbon garments blocked only five to fifty-five percent.”


The Eighth Circuit also ruled that ALS’s use of the terms “odor eliminating” and “reactivation” in describing its products was not literally false, and that the district court had erred in basing “its determination of literal falsity on the most absolute of competing dictionary definitions of the word ‘eliminate.’” In support, the Court noted that “Defendants introduced evidence of substantial customer satisfaction with ALS’s Scent-LokŪ products, as well as evidence that, when those products first came on the market in the early 1990’s, numerous soaps, powders, and cover sprays were being marketed to deer hunters as ‘odor-eliminating’ products.”


The Court also ruled that “Plaintiffs led the district court into error” in entering an injunction, and ordered the dismissal of all claims for injunctive relief because “Plaintiffs failed to prove both the requisite irreparable injury and their core allegations that Defendants’ use of the terms ‘odor eliminating’ and ‘reactivation’ were literally false.”


Scent-LokŪ president and inventor of activated-carbon hunting apparel, Greg Sesselmann, commented: “We are gratified by the decision. It gives me great satisfaction that our products continue to provide hunters the ability to get close to wildlife and experience the beauty of nature like never before. At the same time, we are saddened at the burden that this lawsuit has caused our team members and their families, as well as the frustration that our retailers, field staff and sales rep organizations have experienced. We thank all of those who have stood beside us in this fight, especially our ultimate customers—people who have purchased Scent-LokŪ gear and know that it works.”

Looks like Scent Lok has hired spammers to try and get the word out that their product is indeed not crap after all..

Maybe it works maybe it dont. I usually delete stuff like this but Im sure some of our members will like to read the latest on Scent Lok.

over priced stuff anyway. Now the new thing is silver in everything, except my bank account! Learn how to hunt and leave the scent worries at home. That may sound a bit ego minded but it's true. Do your best de-scenting by staying clean, using the wind, good stand placement and you're way ahead of any carbon clothing needs. That's my take on the Scent Lok issue!

Is this supposed to entice me into paying $300 for a pair of insulated overalls? Or $250 for a insulated coat? I THINK NOT....

not hired. a believer in the products based on personal in the field use. wish i was payed. posted to counter all the band wagon jumper oners posting the evils of scent-lok on here and other places and to help other hunters. 96% is better than 50% and $20 for a hat mask or $50 for a set of under garments is a far cry form $300. living with a closed mind must be comforting. whatever. do with the info as you wish

While I agree that the new studies prove it works.... Most of us are just going to stick to playng the wind.... It's much cheaper. :)

I feel I have fairly good success hunting
I have bought a lot of stuff over the years that was supposed to improve my hunting I figure it still costs me about $500 a pound of veni & turkey
I am not putting Scent Lok down but for the price I will skip it
a lot of products out there all but guarantee you a deer if you use their product
I found the best thing out there that works is just to hunt smart.
If you hunt smart you don't need 99% of the stuff on the market if you don't hunt smart 100% of the stuff on the market still won't help you

Amen gfd... I'm guessing the guest has not been to a bass pro or cabela's in a while. Scent lok is the MOST EXPENSIVE stuff on the market.

I'm pretty sure I killed a nice 10 last year wearing redhead cheapies... yep,, pretty sure.
