H.S. has long been associated with the science of scent control, so it's no surprise that when H.S. got into apparel it would start at the base level. The new Scent-A-Way TEK 4 base layer line uses nylon threads, permanently encapsulated in pure silver and woven into the garment for odor control, that will last for the life of the garment. Materials and design also provide permanent perspiration management, thermal properties, comfort, and durability.
The line includes headnet ($15-$20), gloves ($15-$25), socks ($15-$20), boxer briefs ($20), baseball and fleece caps ($13-$20), and base layer pants ($45-$70) and tops ($45-$70) in both light and heavy weights. In field-testing, I found the garments not only comfortable but also effective at moisture and temperature management. Regarding odor control, I can say that after I'd worn the garments several times under conditions that made me sweat, both the user and the garments bore no odor, at least detectable by the human nose.
