5. Dress for your hunt in the field, away from your vehicle
As stated earlier, carbon clothing is constantly adsorbing odors from its surroundings. To reduce the possibility of contamination by ambient odors, and to reserve the scent-adsorbing capacity of your garments for the hunt, dress in the field and away from your vehicle.
6. Wear tall, rubber or neoprene boots
Everyone knows that feet produce a lot of odor, so make sure your boots aren’t letting you down by giving you up. Boots made from leather, Cordura, nylon and other porous materials breathe, meaning they let air and moisture in and out. If air or moisture are escaping, so are odors. Rubber or neoprene boots are non-porous and do a better job of keeping odors contained inside. Hunting socks that help prevent foot odor are another form of “cheap insurance.”
7. Wear your carbon pants over your boots
Hunters who tuck their pant legs into their boots—even rubber boots—allow air and odors to escape through the top with every step. Pants should be worn over the boots. This provides 6-10-inches of activated carbon material to adsorb odors that escape from the tops of the boots.
