Despite recent questions regarding the overall effectiveness of carbon impregnated clothing, my confidence in such garments hasn’t faltered one bit. What’s more, I can say with total honesty that my position on the subject has nothing to do with sponsorship or money. On the contrary, my belief stems from many years in the field, witnessing first hand what quality carbon clothing, in conjunction with a “solid scent reduction system”, can do to your success rate.
Since it’s inception into the carbon clothing market in 1997, Scent Blocker has been my choice when it comes to flying under what is arguably the greatest radar in the woods….the whitetail’s nose. Immediately after subscribing to a total “scent-reduction system”, I realized just how much my bowhunting experiences could improve. Since those days, the technology behind the Scent Blocker clothing line has grown by leaps and bounds. With attire and products covering just about every situation imaginable, there really is no excuse for getting “busted”.
But, let’s not turn this into another sales pitch for reducing your “man-funk”. The point is that Robinson Outdoors, makers of Scent Blocker/Scent Shield has recently made the decision to step outside of their “area of expertise”, if you will, and introduce a product that has absolutely nothing to do with scent control. Yes, in today’s economy, it is a brave, and to some extent, risky move for the carbon clothing giant. However, President and CEO Scott Shultz is no stranger to making innovative moves. It is that attitude that has allowed his company to develop some of the best products in the business. Without question, their newest creation is sure to make waves in an industry that seems to have peaked in the “innovation” dept. Until now. I’m talking about safety harnesses.
Aptly named the “Tree Spider”, this new system is fast, light, and easy to use. And while you’ve most likely heard those terms used before, this time it is for real. With ingenious features that allow the system to be attached to your favorite jacket in the Scent Blocker lineup, lineman’s loops for safely hanging stands, back pack attachment capability, and figure-eight webbing configuration, just to name a few, the new Tree Spider is definitely going to change the face of safety arrest systems.
