Elimitrax Elimitrax Scent-Free Overboots

Seal your scent inside these comfortable over boots and leave no trace behind. No matter how many trips you make to and from your stand during the season, you'll never leave a scent trail. During testing, the Elimitrax even fooled a trophy bloodhound's acute sense of smell. The revolutionary plastic in the foot pad and scent-free lamination in the upper won't hold or leave behind even the slightest game-spooking odor. The hip-high upper extends the scent-free coverage and prevents odor transfer to taller grasses and brush. Water-resistant, bur-resistant leggings cinch down with web straps for a secure fit. And the belt strap attachment is adjustable. Men's Sizes: Regular (8-11), Large (11-14). Camo pattern: Mossy Oak? Break-Up?.

too noisy

Date:January 9, 2009
I have to admit I was excited upon receiving my elimitrax, however after wearing them into the woods on more than a few occasions I couldn't get over how noisy they were. I figured maybe they were just brand new and they'd break in or whatever but no such luck.. There are two pieces to the system, the 'nylon like' sock if you will and the hard rubber outsole. As you walk the the 'nylon sock' rubs against the rubber outsole. This creates too much noise. If this product was all one piece and didn't squeak so loud as you walked it'd be much better. I have no doubt in the scent elimination part of the product but what good does that do if you can't quietly slip in and out of your stand.

Hot, Clumbsy and Noisy!

Date:September 7, 2008
I tried these things. They are Very Hot and do not breath. They are extremely noisy and the buckles fly all over making even more noise. And on top of it all, they are are so big and clumbsy that they actually make you trip and stumble just walking through short weeds. I would say this is the lamest product that I have ever tried.

excellent for scent control

Date:July 13, 2008
I began to realize how amazing this product really worked the first time I went out in the woods with them. I seen more deer and seen my first coyote that day, I was sold then. This continued everytime I wore them. I have been wearing scentlock clothes well long before the elimitrax and religious on being scent free as much as possible before entering the woods and would still get nailed and would go weeks with limited deer sightings but everytime i wear the elimitrax I am confident I will encounter more wild game. On that note I am giving them a 5 star but they do tend to be noisy.

works great

Date:December 11, 2006
I have owned these for a few years. There is no doubt that it eliminates ground scent. Because of that, it does what it is supposed to do. It is also great in thick brush as far as not picking up any burrs or snagging on thorns. They are not completely waterproof but will easily keep feet dry when crossing over streams as long as they are not submersed for prolonged periods of time. There are a few negatives to this product however. In the early season you will build up some moisture inside the pants. They are not breathable at all but that is to be expected as they do not permit any scent to pass through and they are made from some sort of advanced plastic. You can only pull them up to the knee if you prefer to help from overheating and sweating in them. They can also be a little on the noisy side (although not too bad) if they rub together while walking or if you are walking through brush. I would not recommend these for stalking but if you are just walking to your stand they do the job. They come with a hard plastic boot cover that easliy and quickly attaches over the pants and is mainly used to protect that actual pant leg over sharp objects. This cover can be somewhat noisy when walking over small twigs as they seem to "echo" the noise as apposed to a rubber sole that will muffle the sound a little more. I believe that the scent elimination properties far outway the slight increase in noise you will produce. You will be able to hunt your stands harder without educating deer of where you have been walking. Care must be taken not to handle these with bare hands so as not to put any scent on them. I either wear rubber gloves or the elimitrax gloves when handling them. They can be stored in the included bag which is made of the same material with a zipper to close and belt loops for carrying.

Elimitrax Scent free boots

Date:November 21, 2006
This product quite simply works
I have been hunting a big 10 point
I scouted him all summer
Twice he cut my track and smelled me and immediately whirled and dashed back in to the bush
I used the elimitrax and sneaked in to my stand
After only 40 minutes I saw him walking directly at the trail I had walked in on
Thinking I was about to be busted I was amazed to watch him follow my track for more than 20 yards. At a distance of only 24 yards I harvested this fine animal
The product is easy to use easy to wear and just plain works
Try it
