    What do you all think of a non-breathable scent containment suit that would hold your scent inside the suit instead of letting it become airborne???

    You've never worn a plastic bag?

    Flashbacks of high school wrestling and cutting weight in a rubber suit. I would imagine a guy would have to be careful how much he moves around in this thing because you are gonna sweat like crazy.

    Initially, I don't like the idea of "Non-breathable".

    I think this belongs in the Manufacturers, PR, Pro-staff Forum.

    Tis the season for product hustle.

    You lost me at NON-breathable.

    I think it would smell like a$$ after about 20 minutes.

    no such thing as scent containment! no product on the market contains scent 100%. hunting the wind is the best scent containment system on the market and it's free!!!

    It will hold in heat causing the body to want to cool itself which will result in sweat, and where do we lose heat from, our heads. Which this can't contain so you will end up with more scent being produced from sweating and your head.

    If you could keep from sweating it sounds like it would work great but if you start sweating then it defeates its own purpose.

    Bill Winke came up with a scent containment suit that Cabelas now sells. Interesting idea but I'd rather just stay downwind and wear something comfortable.

    Face, hands, breath were not addressed yet they give off scent. Good luck with your venture. I hope you sell many of them.

    I bought one of these on clearance a few years ago. I did not experience any sweating in it and I did have deer down wind of me. However.....I try to reduce my scent most in regards to the breath. This is where the majority of your air-borne scent comes from.
    I still have the suit but no longer use it since I find it a bit noisy. In addition to usual scent control, I use Ozonics and this product has worked wonders.

    Non breathable = sweat = cold. At least mid and late season. Early season might not matter but I would fill my boots up with sweat.
