The Breath-Taker by Smootchie Outdoors

Justin ZarrWhat does a buck really smell when he first winds you? Invariably, it’s your breath. Coating your tongue and gums are countless volatile sulfide compounds (VSCs). Combined, they produce the same odors that are associated with: a pig farm, feed lot, fecal matter, decaying meat and stagnant backwaters. Yuck! And no amount of gum-chewing, brushing or gargling can stop these micro-organisms from pouring it on. Compounding matters is the sheer volume of normal human breathing more than 60 gallons of breath are released per hour. Moreover, VSC compounds are comparatively heavy and sticky, causing them pile up and cling to whatever they land on. No wonder hunters “burn out” their treestand locations even when taking extreme precautions.

Enter The Breath-Taker. Its patent-pending 4M technology (4 masks in one) is ingenious, The first layer is a hydrophobic material to help prevent moisture transfer into the carbon layer to optimize the carbon absorption.

Next is a 5-micron filtration layer that makes the new Breath-Taker more breathable as it screens dust, allergens and pollens that could ruin your hunt. The third layer contains pristine active carbon that vacuums and absorbs up to 99% of all malodorous compounds. But because the Breath-Taker is disposable, it costs about a dollar a day to hunt scentless. What’s more, the second-generation Breath-Taker contains 50 percent more carbon for maximum adsorption power. Another new feature is an effective temperature and moisture regulation method. We’ve even added a storage system; the re-sealable 5-pack conforms to US Army activated carbon packaging specifications. So now you can be assured that your fifth breath-Taker mask will absorb as many scent molecules as your first one.

Last and certainly not least, you won’t have to take a breather from The Breath-Taker during an all-day hunt: A new, ultra-light camouflaged layer cuts down on bulk.
