According to Field & Stream, a judge in Minnesota has ruled that the clothing giant ALS is liable for false advertising!
The smelly suit was brought forth by a few hunters that claimed their Scent-Lok clothing did not provide the type of 100% scent elimination as claimed. During the hearing, the plaintiffs called Dr. Amos Turk to the stand, a one time Scent-Lok consultant. Dr Turk suggested the article of clothing in question, provided by the plaintiff, would be relatively poor in reducing human odor.
This ruling does nothing to suggest whether Scent-Lok actually works or not. It only suggests they were found liable of false advertising. So…DOES SCENT-LOK WORK? Let’s air our that laundry…
I tell hunters all the time to hunt with your nose to the wind. My OPINION is that it can help, certainly can not hurt, and it may be the edge that gets that deer to hang on three more seconds for a shot. On the other hand, I do not believe any clothing will eliminate 100% of human odor. You stink. Own it! On the other hand, if it makes you feel more confident when heading to the field to wear Scent-Lok clothing then go for it. Heck I’d wear my wife’s prom dress if I thought it would help!
I am interested as to what your experiences have been with Scent-Lok…
