Care

General Garment Care

Machine wash in cold water, gentle cycle. Use Carbon clothes wash like our Scent Shield X-Factor Laundry Detergent or non-scented sport wash. Do not use bleach or softeners.
Air dry completely, or dry on high heat for non-waterproof items, low heat for items with a waterproof membrane. Undergarments and head covers may require more frequent wash and dryer cycles.
Do not dry clean, do not use cover scents or waterproofing products. Commercial dryers may damage trims, use with caution.

Reactivate the Tech

Reactivate for 30-40 minutes in your dryer on high heat for non-waterproof items, low heat for items with a waterproof membrane. Repeat regeneration process every 30-40 hours of actual use.
Store in an air-tight container. For best results store in a carbon lined bag to help control scent from entering your garment when you’re not hunting, and to prevent it from adsorbing odors. Wash the item following the process above only if the garment becomes soiled, i.e., mud or blood. If a small area becomes soiled, simply spot wash with a damp cloth.

Follow these steps to make yourself, your garments, and your gear as effective as possible.
