Default Scent free camo storage ?

Any one have an ideal for storing camo and boots. I used the vacum bags but they got torn really easy. I want to use something like the scentlock box but don't want to spend that much.

I use a water proof storage bag that I got from WalMart. It has a velcrow strip on the top and then you roll it down and then it has a snap buckle that makes into a handle. These bags are pretty heavy duty and WILL NOT TEAR. They are made for using on a boat. They have them at Cabela's and Bass Pro as well. I think I gave $15 for mine and it hold an ton of stuff and I did not get the biggest one.

Also use the big totes from rubbermade. After washing and spraying down I throw a couple scent wafers and pine branches in with the gear. Seems to work pretty well.

I used a rubbermaid tote box as well and bought the charcoal pad insert and bungieed it to the inside of the lid. Insert washed clothes, cedar branches and whatever else and it has worked for me for a few years.

A heavy duty trash bag is cheap alternative. I've used the rubber totes before also, although the waterpoof bag is a really good idea too.

Glad super-sized bags do work well.

Charcoal can be found wherever fish aquarium supplies are sold. Charcoal is used as a filter.

I've had mine for a couple years. If my memory serves me correctly, (which it usually doesn't) found them at Wal Mart or Target.

JUST MAKE IT SIMPLE.....Go out and cut the ends of some healthy cedar tree branches, around 18" in length. Take a nice bag full of them, and put them on some pavement and mulch them with your lawn mower. You can do it 2 or 3 times using a bagging mower if you want. Take the fine mulch and put it some old socks and tie them up. Put several of
them in with your camo clothes in a duffel bag and don't worry, the cedar smell will impregnate your clothes. This is just as effective and much simpler than trying to use airtight, scent-tite bags. cedar is natural scent all over tx...

I've been using these for 9 years, the same ones they are very durable. I use them for packing all my cloths in scent free or not, you can throw them in the back of your truck and don't have to worry about rain.

Put your gear in a big trash bag with a couple of boxes of baking soda and shake 'em up good.put as much non self starting kingsford as you can get into a knee high panty hose ( may have to raid granny's sock drawer) and drop in there , twist it and tie it up!.you can redo this for pennies every other outing and it works like a champ.us old guys been doing it since way before carbon suits. But hey ,we aint getting paid either.

Love the idea of cedar in a sock but that will itch when you try to put that sock on not to mention the sap that will get on your foot...
