OZChamber 8K & OZ500 Combo Pack
Every piece of gear a hunter takes into the field picks up ambient odors that can be alarming to deer. That’s why odor-control storage is critically important to success—whether you use activated carbon scent-control clothing or not.
Part of the OZ family of Active Odor Destroyers, the new OZChamber 8K Storage Bag / OZ500 Combo Pack combines the power of CycleCleanTMand OZInjectTM ozone technologies with carbon adsorption to literally destroy the odors that attach themselves to clothing and gear and ruin hunts. Offering a generous 8,190 cubic-inches of storage space, the OZChamber 8K Storage Bag is available in black (actually a distinctive digital gray/black pattern), as well as a choice of three popular camo patterns. The fabric is heavy 600D nylon with a DWR treatment to shed external moisture. It is lined with a PVC backing inside for easy care. The bag comes with a carbon adsorbing pad that fits into an interior mesh pocket to trap odors from your gear and the air inside the bag, and is also pre-plumbed with an OZInjectTM internal piping system to distribute odor-destroying ozone throughout the interior.
An OZ500 ozone generator comes bundled with the OZChamber 8K Storage Bag / OZ500 Combo Pack. This advanced ozone generator is specifically designed to emit a powerful stream of ozone molecules that seek out and destroy virtually all types of odors and bacteria in their path. CycleCleanTM technology allows the all-powerful OZ500 to regulate output by alternating between active and resting phases for maximum efficiency and longer product life.
Whether you need to restore or maintain the odor-adsorbing capacity of your activated carbon scent-control apparel, or deodorize your regular hunting clothing or accessories, the new OZChamber 8K & OZ500 Combo Pack is the best and most comprehensive odor-destroying storage solution available today. MSRP $199.99 (black) & $219.99 (camo). Learn more at scentlok.com.
