Hunting Clothes - X Scent Apparel Adds Stealth; Helps Block Mosquito Radar

Hunting Clothes - X Scent

Hunting Clothes - BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – Anyone who hunts turkeys in the spring or big game hunting during the early season knows exactly how irritating mosquitoes can be at the moment of truth. Like it’s a planned event, those hard-biting, blood-thirsty insects begin buzzing your ears just as that 11-inch-bearded gobbler starts to make his move into shotgun range. And of course there’s always that single quail-size mosquito on your back that manages to bite through your hunting clothing while you’re at full draw, waiting for that trophy whitetail to take one more step.

Without question, mosquitoes have hindered the success of outdoorsmen due to the lack of practical solutions for keeping biting insects away – until now.

A recent article from Reuters Health states that scientists have identified a special receptor on blood-thirsty female mosquitoes that helps them locate and target humans for their next meal. In the article, Dr. John R. Carlson of Yale University in New Haven, Conn., was quoted: “We found that a particular mosquito smell receptor is remarkably sensitive to a human sweat odor.”

“This is great news for the launch of our new ‘Scent Elimination System’ called X Scent,” said ArcticShield President J.T. Griffin. “The silver fibers in our X Scent apparel eliminates human sweat odor, so there’s less for those annoying mosquitoes to detect.”

X Scent™ apparel utilizes a technology called X-STATIC®, which is a fiber with 0.999-pure silver (Ag) permanently, irreversibly bound to the surface of polyester fibers. The precious-metal lined fabric of X Scent™ apparel doesn’t trap or absorb odors; it hinders the process of odor production by eliminating the source of the problem, which is bacteria.

Silver ions are a superb antimicrobial, meaning they’re highly toxic to odor-emitting bacteria cells. Ions passed from the silver fibers infiltrate bacteria cells and bond with DNA chains, which literally shuts down the cells’ respiratory system and the ability to reproduce.

In addition to controlling odor, Silver Fiber Technology™ is thermodynamic, meaning it will keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by conducting body heat away from and around your body. Unlike other scent-control garments, X Scent™ is highly breathable and works in the warmest of weather to whatever adverse hunting or fishing conditions Mother Nature can dish out.

“This news about mosquito receptors combined with the thermodynamic properties of X-STATIC just shows that X Scent can benefit any sportsman’s hobby, anytime of the year,” Griffin said. “X Scent will help turkey hunters and anglers as much as it will help deer hunters.”

X Scent™ apparel is powered by an advanced silver-fiber technology called X-STATIC®. For more information, please visit
