Default What scent control clothes do you where?

There are so many different scent control companies out there right now, which company do you like the most?

I buy what I want then wash in scent control and spray down in scent control. That way I'm not spending TONS of money for the clothing.. I just do it myself.

I do it the same way as Tator, I buy any sort of hunting clothes but I always use special detergents and sprays to help eliminate scents/odors.

The "special" scent control clothing to me is gimmicky and over priced, I have too many other ways to spend my money rather than waste it unnecessarily.

I agree with tator and BB, I'm not buying camo that is that expensive. I buy the scent killer soap/shampoo and detergent and wash my clothes.

I wear the same clothes I was wearing before all that came out. I use no commercial "scent killer". I realized many years ago it can't be done. You can't eliminate human odor. I hunt in tennis shoes in warm weather and to my knowledge, have never had a deer spook at where I put my feet.

I wash my clothes in Tide Free-it contains no scents or dyes. I air/sun dry them outdoors. I use my tennys only for hunting and wading creeks for smallmouth and they too get a regular washing and air drying. I shower before I go to the woods and wear no deodorant of any kind.

AND I PLAY THE WIND!

The cost is minimal and I seldom get blown out.
