Question Hunting clothes storage solutions?

I'm wanting to get my dad a more convenient way to store his hunting clothes for Christmas. Currently, he just keeps them in plastic tubs in the garage. Every year before hunting season he has to go out and sort through it all. ( I know, he could just organize it all when he puts it away, but he won't.) I'm looking at a couple of different free standing storage closets, but I don't know what would work better out in the heat and humidity of his garage. I would like to get something simple like this

I'm just not sure if breathable fabric is the way to go. I've also been looking at the scent crusher closet. I'm not sure if it's worth the extra money. He has an ozonics that he can put in the cheaper one if he wants.

Uh you might want to kind of round about check with Dad first. I've been throwing my stuff in my old MC duffle bag for years. every year I dump it out go through it sort, clean and check it, its kind of one of those things I enjoy doing.
Not saying yours wouldn't like a new storage thingy but you never know.

Lol, yeah I know he would like it. My brother has something similar, but his is in his house in the A/C. My dad is just one of those guys that either won't spend money on something like that or just never really thinks about it when he's at a store. He'll just complain and moan every year when he is digging through his stuff.

I use the Coleman storage bags. I wash them and sort it out when I put it away at the end of the season in a Plano plastic tote. It is airtight and once you press the air out of them (just roll it up tight) they can hold a lot for only a little bit of space.

Watching

I have been thinking of getting something to use with an ozone generator to "dry clean" descent some of my stuff

I pack most of my stuff in totes

I keep a foot locker in the garage with anything I normally wear. All of it is clean and scent free

Wash in No-Scent detergent then fold and put in an ice chest. Throw a cedar limb on top. Or a couple of green pine cones if he hunts East Texas.

Guys, I appreciate the responses, but we already wash and store our scent-free clothes in totes. This is more about an easier way to keep things organized, and wether the cheaper closet will last in the heat and humidity.

I use large tupperware type containers and put different sets in each one.

IMHO, the two options don't look all that different in terms of durability. I'm always skeptical of the premium that retailers put on hunting/scent control technology.

If it was me, I'd go with the less expensive of the two. I can't imagine it will perform differently.
