Scent Blocker for the huntress

Good news for big-game huntresses: Another hunting apparel manufacturer has discovered women!

Scent Blocker this week announced its Lady Dream Season line, featuring scent-elimination fleece jacket and pants, boots, cap and gloves, as well as non-hunting apparel.

I do not have any of these products in my hot little hands (sniff, sniff), so I cannot attest to fit or construction. But the company proclaims that these were designed "by women, for women." And as the name implies, the clothing was inspired by the Dream Season couples television show.

There is one thing I can tell you just from reading the press release: Size options are waaaaay too limited: small, medium and large.

All the women-run companies I've dealt with - SHE Safari, Foxy Huntress and Prois Hunting Apparel - realize women don't stop at size large; they're all either offering or preparing to offer sizes up to 2XL or 3XL. (Click here to see a chart comparing their lines.)

But if the company is offering clothes that fit at least some of us right, that's a step in the right direction. And it certainly has the right market: Big-game hunting is by far the most popular type of hunting among women.
