From Hunter Safety System:
Danville, Ala. (Jan. 9, 2017) — Hunter Safety System, the industry leader in tree stand safety, continues to set the industry standard in treestand harness technology with the addition of ElimiShield® Scent Control Technology. Hunter Safety System is now offering four of its most popular safety harnesses with the most revolutionary approach to controlling human odor at the source before it forms: ElimiShield® Technology. By pretreating the Hybrid, Elite, Crossbow and Contour harnesses with ElimiShield® during the manufacturing process, a bond is formed that has more than a 99-percent proven effective rate of controlling odor even after 50 commercial washes.
ElimiShield is a revolutionary odor control technology that has been vetted by and is in use by Fortune 500 textile companies. Articles treated with ElimiShield Technology utilize an active-odor-control technology that produces a strong molecular chain of atoms that resembles a microscopic “bed of nails.” These atoms physically pierce the cell walls of odor-causing bacteria, thereby eliminating them. Unlike silver and other technologies used in other products, the ElimiShield treated article mechanically kills odor-causing bacteria, which cannot develop immunity to it. Also, the product is long lasting, environmentally friendly, non-leaching, non-irritating and non-poisonous. It also protects the products from souring after being exposed to sweat and moisture while in use and then packed away in storage during the off-season.
“We are all hunters. We are continually looking for ways to improve our products and scent control is always a huge concern. There are some scents that deer don’t care for but will tolerate; human scent is a deal breaker. ElimiShield destroys human odor more efficiently than anything we’ve seen,” said Jay Everett, Hunter Safety System marketing manager. “Most hunters wash their clothes religiously to control their scent, but they rarely wash their harnesses. While sprays might help, they don’t last and more importantly, don’t get to the inner parts of the harness that often hold human odor.
“Hunter Safety System is the first and only company to offer effective scent elimination in a harness. We also have partnered with the makers of ElimiShield Scent Control Technology to bring this technology to the hunting industry. We truly believe it is a game changer and that you’ll soon see it used in several common hunting products.” concluded Everett.
The new Hybrid, Elite and Contour harnesses featuring the ElimiShield Technology will also have new flashlight MOLLE attachment points on the shoulders for hands-free illumination while in the field. This is especially important while ascending and descending the treestand in the dark during early and late hours.
These new feature packed harnesses will be available at retailers nationwide this spring with no price increase. The Elite will retail for $159.95, Contour $139.95 and Crossbow and Hybrid Flex $129.95 each. Products can also be purchased conveniently online at www.hssvest.com.
Don’t sweat it this hunting season; be sure to get your improved Hunter Safety System harness to keep you safe and scent-free.
