ScentLok Storage Bags Provide Odor Protection For Hunters

 

 

 

Step Up to the Better

Odor-Destroying Hunting Gear Storage Bag

 

NEW ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bags and Combos available now

 

 

Muskegon, MI (March 21, 2018) – There’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything. And when it comes to storing your deer-hunting clothing and accessories, even well intended hunters make mistakes. If you are using an airtight tote or dedicated storage bag to minimize contamination from ambient odors, congratulations; you’re on the right track.

 

But there’s a better way.

 

OZChamber 8K & OZ500 Combo Pack?

 

 

 

Toss your tote, repurpose your bag, and step up to the better odor-destroying storage system for your hunting apparel and gear. The new OZChamber 8K Storage Bag from ScentLok combines the power of CycleClean™? and OZInject™? ozone technologies with carbon adsorption to literally destroy the odors that attach themselves to clothing and gear and ruin hunts.

 

Patented ScentLok Carbon Alloy™? hunting garments have been proven deadly in the field, by combining activated carbon with zeolite and treated carbon to help adsorb a larger spectrum of odors – as well as targeting specific odors – better than ever before. But every piece of gear a hunter takes into the field picks up additional ambient odors that can be alarming to deer. That’s why odor-control storage is critically important to success – whether you use activated carbon scent-control clothing or not.

 

 

 

 

A Better Bag

 

Offering a generous 8,190 cubic-inches of storage space, the ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bag is available in black (actually a distinctive digital gray/black pattern), as well as a choice of three popular camo patterns. The fabric is heavy 600D nylon with a DWR treatment to shed external moisture. It is lined with a PVC backing inside for easy care. The bag comes with a carbon adsorbing pad that fits into an interior mesh pocket to trap odors from your gear and the air inside the bag, and is also pre-plumbed with an OZInject™ internal piping system to distribute odor-destroying ozone throughout the interior.

 

A ScentLok OZ500 ozone generator comes bundled with the OZChamber 8K Combo Pack. This advanced ozone generator is specifically designed to emit a powerful stream of ozone molecules that seek out and destroy virtually all types of odors and bacteria in their path. When ozone comes in contact with these contaminants, their chemical structure is changed to a compound that is no longer recognizable as an offensive odor. As ozone continues to attack these compounds, the odor is destroyed through oxidation and the ozone reverts back to oxygen after it is used. ScentLokCycleClean™ technology allows the powerful OZ500 to regulate output by alternating between active and resting phases for maximum efficiency and longer product life.

 

Whether you need to restore or maintain the odor-adsorbing capacity of your activated carbon scent-control apparel, or deodorize your regular hunting clothing or accessories, the new ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bag is the best and most comprehensive odor-destroying storage solution available today.

BUFF Introduces New UVX Mask and Balaclava To Protect Anglers


 

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BUFF UVX Mask and UVX Balaclava

Provide Heads-Up Protection

Santa Rosa, CA (March 8, 2018) – Time to face the truth: outdoor recreation isn’t always kind on the complexion. From whipping winds, to solar harshness, to hostile insects — nature guards its resources with some pretty tough sentries. Add to this the keen perception of the critters we seek to hunt, catch or photograph, and it’s clear that anglers and hunters need topside protection beyond hats and glasses.

Buff, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of ORIGINAL BUFF, SA, the original creators of versatile multi-functional performance headwear, addresses these concerns with a trio of head- and neck-protecting items that’ll ensure your comfort on the water and in the woods.

.’

BUFF UVX Balaclava shown in Pelagic White Camo

UVX Mask — Covering your neck and shoulders and fitting over the back of the head, the UVX Mask is made with ultra-lightweight fabric and contouring two-way stretch. Providing a comfortable fit with a streamlined look, the mask wicks away moisture and dries quickly. Laser-cut breathing holes allow a free flow of air for optimal respiration without fogging your sunglasses, while UPF 50+ protection, wind resistance and thermal protection round out the benefits.

UVX Balaclava — For even greater coverage, Buff takes all the great features of the UVX Mask and extends the protection to reach over your entire head. Combining superior UV protection with the quick-dry advantage of moisture-wicking material and the comfort of enhanced two-way stretch and recovery, this versatile balaclava allows a full range of motion without skimping on its primary duty.

UVX Insect Shield® Balaclava — Take the impressive UVX Balaclava, bolster it with Insect Shield treatment and you have a full range of protection that’ll make sure those flies, gnats and mosquitoes don’t crash your party.

BUFF UVX Balaclava shown in Pelagic White Camo

Between full uses, both the UVX Mask and UVX Balaclavas can be worn with the face guard up or down, or with the head covering down. This versatility ensures total comfort and adaptability for everything from talking on your Smartphone, to sipping the morning coffee or nibbling on those energy snacks.

“There’s nothing more frustrating than investing the time and effort into establishing the ideal position for your fishing or hunting objective; only to find the insects and/or elements too distracting to focus on your pursuit,” said Kevin Walker, Buff, Inc. Marketing Manager. “We know how important it is for anglers and hunters to maximize their time on the water or in the woods, so we’ve created highly functional masks and balaclavas from advanced materials to provide anglers and hunters the ultimate protection.”

So where do you need such items? Scarce are the days when you don’t need head and neck protection; but for anglers, consider the scorching reflection of the ocean’s surface and the merciless lashing of windy days. Coastal anglers, you know what happens when you venture close to the mangroves and salt marshes — mosquito assault, horsefly bombardment, sand gnat sneak attack. And how about our northern outings? Black flies ever ruin your pike trip? No more.

And don’t overlook the sight-fishing relevance. From bass to bones, reds to tarpon; the ability block peripheral light by pulling your Balaclava over your BUFF® 10-4 Tech Cap and snugging the edges around your sunglasses can be a difference-maker.

Consider also the benefit of locking sunglasses and/or prescription glasses on your head. Sure, any of the many cord/lanyard options will do the same thing, but these accessories can create awkward, if not downright inconvenient fit issues when you’re wearing a mask or balaclava. With temple stems secured beneath the protective fabric, your glasses stay put; no matter which way you turn, or how fast the boat is moving.

Hunters will appreciate the UVX Mask and UVX Balaclavas for spring turkey hunts, early season deer stands; and even those weeks of planting food plots and working trail cameras. Nature photographers — you’re also on the invitation list. Never again will windburn, sunburn or buzzing bugs cause you to miss that stellar shot.

Top Finishing Bass Anglers All Credit Same Z-Man® Vibrating Jig

he following press release is courtesy of Z-Man.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LADSON, SC (March 2, 2018) – Pretty compelling when someone wins a bigtime bass tourney with a super cool bait off the mainstream radar. But when five of the top ten anglers single out this same exceptional lure, including the top 3 finishers, it could be fairly classified as a big deal.

The plot thickens even more when none of the winning anglers are sponsored by the lure manufacturer in question. Call that a big statement.

Just such a scenario played out at the recent FLW Tour event at Florida’s Harris Chain of Lakes, where the all the top finishers seemed to be giving props the same lure, a Z-Man ChatterBait brand bladed jig. Eventual champion Chris Johnston edged his buddy and fellow Ontario resident Jeff Gustafson by a mere two pounds, using the same ½-ounce, white Z-Man / Evergreen ChatterBait JackHammer™ vibrating jig Gustafson gave him on the eve of the final day.

.’

“Super happy for Chris,” said Gustafson. “For two Canadians to come down here, fish the same baits and finish #1 and #2 is just awesome.”

During the three-day event, many of the anglers lamented the fact that the lake hosted historic densities of hydrilla, including clumps of the invasive plant growing all the way down to 12 feet of water.

Gustafson and several other anglers discovered a ChatterBait bladed jig could be fished similar to the locally popular method of ripping lipless crankbaits, but without constantly snagging salad. He also noted the ChatterBait Custom lure scored near tournament winning largemouths at the January FLW event on Lake Okeechobee.

Z-Man’s ChatterBait Jack Hammer has been red hot on this year’s FLW Tour.

“At the Harris Chain tourney, I fished the ChatterBait JackHammer from beginning to end,” he continued. “Unlike a lot of the northern lakes we fish where vegetation forms distinct edges, down here the hydrilla grows in almost random clumps. I focused most of my energy on those deeper clumps in 8 to 12 feet of water. Best spots were holes in the vegetation where it was matted up to the surface.

“In the sparser areas, I’m sure you could have caught ‘em on a ‘trap (lipless crank), but in the thicker grass, the heavy duty ChatterBait was money.”

Most of Gustafson’s bass bit while he presented the vibrating jig aggressively. “I was just ripping and popping the bait in place, letting the blade do its thing. The other key was the Z-Man RaZor ShadZ™, a super durable, segmented shad-profile bait. Put one of these on a ChatterBait and it can last at least 30 to 40 fish.”

Jared McMillan (Photo by Charles Waldorf / FLW Outdoors)

Meanwhile, third place finisher John Hunter focused efforts on slightly shallower hydrilla flats. He chalked up his final weight of 75-pounds 13-ounces to two jerkbaits and a ChatterBait JackHammer bladed swim jig. On the final day, the ChatterBait lure tempted a beautiful 7-pound hawg, captured by FLW’s cameraman.

Two other top-ten anglers also credited Z-Man ChatterBait brand vibrating jigs. Buddy Gross, who finished 5th and Jared McMillan, who notched the 9th spot, both called out the unique bait as one of their difference-making presentations.

Creator of the Original ChatterBait bladed jig, Z-Man Fishing recently announced a new ¾-ounce size of its ultra-refined ChatterBait JackHammer, a lure that will be debuted at the Bassmaster Classic Expo in March. Designed by Bassmaster Elite Series pro Brett Hite in conjunction with Japanese luremaker Evergreen International, the JackHammer features a low center of gravity swim jighead, Gamakatsu® heavy wire flipping hook and Decoy® Egg Snap, among other innovative extras.

ScentLok’s patented Carbon AlloyTMhunting garments have been proven deadly in the field, by combining activated carbon with zeolite and treated carbon to help adsorb a larger spectrum of odors – as well as targeting specific odors – better than ever before. But every piece of gear we take into the field picks up additional ambient odors that can be alarming to deer, which is why a Complete Odor Management strategy should also involve your home and vehicle.

 

New for 2018, OZ Active Odor-Destroyers by ScentLok are designed to reactivate activated carbon garments and deodorize other gear and accessories, while also keeping the environments around hunters and their gear as odor-free as possible. These premium pre- and post-hunt ozone products utilize the very latest technology and do not interfere with other odor-controlling products on the market.

 

 

From the home to the truck to the field and back home again, the new OZ family of Active Odor Destroyers by ScentLok helps keep environments around hunters and their gear odor-free.

 

 

 

OZ Active Odor Destroyers are specifically designed to emit a powerful stream of ozone molecules that seek out and destroy virtually all types of odors and bacteria in their path. When ozone comes in contact with these contaminants, their chemical structure is changed to a compound that is no longer recognizable as an offensive odor. As ozone continues to attack these compounds, the odor is destroyed through oxidation. The ozone then reverts back to oxygen. Revolutionary CycleCleanTMtechnology allows OZ generators to moderate output by alternating between active and resting phases for maximum efficiency and longer product life.

 

ScentLok’s OZ Active Odor Destroying Products consist of an OZ20 Vehicle DeodorizerOZ20B Portable DeodorizerOZ100 Small Room Deodorizer and OZ500 Large Room Deodorizer.

 

 

No odor is too tough for the ScentLok OZ500 Large Room Deodorizer. Complete with 12V DC power supply and vehicle power adaptor, OZ500 is the ideal odor destroyer for large rooms and spaces. It’s also compatible with ScentLok’s slick new OZChamber Hardline Storage Tote or OZChamber 8K Storage Bag.

 

 

 

The Long and Smelly Road

 

Ambient odors are insidious, and your vehicle collects them from every possible source as you travel down the roadways of everyday life. Your dog’s hair, the rogue french fries under your seat and the variety of odors that come off our own bodies; they all collect and co-mingle inside our vehicles, then conspire to hitch a ride with us whenever we leave and venture into the field. Ultimately, they all can sound like alarm bells to a whitetail’s nose.

 

Life teaches that cheap insurance comes in many forms. The latest of which for hunters is theScentLok OZ20 Vehicle Deodorizer. Simply plug this affordable marvel into your vehicle’s all-in-one 12V receptacle and let the odor destruction begin.

 

Even those who don’t hunt will appreciate the OZ20’s almost instant ability to deodorize the cabin of their car or truck. It’ll smell so clean, in fact, that you might even consider starting your own ride-sharing business.

The Truth Stinks

Everyone wants to believe their home smells like June apples, fresh linens or a Hawaiian breeze. But the reality is this: The foods we cook, the products we use, the animals we care for and our own diverse housekeeping practices make our homes smell like… well, something totally different. And when we leave our homes, those odors can easily go with us.

 

ScentLok OZ Room and Home Deodorizers make it easy kill the odors that live with us in our homes – not by masking them, but by breaking them down and literally destroying them. Three powerful and efficient models are available.
