Ok. The first thing I want to ask is if you DON'T have any experience with this product, there is no need to reply. I have read plenty of negative reviews from people who HAVEN'T used this stuff.

That being said, I am looking for legitimate reviews. Thanks in advance

I think I'm gonna get me a suit. I already have the ozonics machine. Even me spending money on that and the HECS, I think its way less than a deer lease payment ROFL. I only hunt public grounds.

I got a set last year turkey hunting. Did it work, well I got four turkey. Was it because of the suit who knows but I will say this. If it’s hot during bow season I’ll just wear that if it is a gimmick I’ll be that’s sucker. It does seem like good quality.

That probably has more to do with the scent he leaves behind than anything he was wearing.

I Own a set. Have not seen anything special while wearing them. I like to wear it while it’s hot. My option is movement and scent will always give you away.

I use HECS combined with my Ozonics units and I'm completely invisible. I've yet to have a Whitetail spoke from downwind with Ozonics or with me walking in/in the stand using HECS. Note, you must use all HECS products (Facemask, gloves, socks) with your suit for it to truly work, but it's worth every cent. I hope this helps, good luck to you!

Not trying to be confrontational by any means. But have you ever used one?
How can you make this statement?

Please if you have used one letís hear your story that makes you a non believer.

Here's some science. The human body creates a magnetic field equivalent to that of a screwdriver from 5 yards away. More than 20,000 times weaker than what is felt at the surface from the earth's magnetic field creation.

Hecs is a scam.

Um Ya. Can you provide a little more credibility then that? It's easy to throw out information on a website without needing to qualify your statement. Since I am the original poster, I was asking about people had actually had experience. If your just gonna poke holes in the theory/science of the gear without real world hands on experience, your point has no validity to me.

I would like to see some of the actual science behind this, if there is any. Not just anecdotes that can easily be explained away by a bajillion other variables.

Every camo pattern out there has dozens of anecdotes about dudes who got within arms reach of some animal and that was only because of their brand new KuiSitLite DisruptiveSuperStealthVerdeCipheFade camo they just got for free as part of their brostaff deal... so unless the testing is scientific and designed to weed our variables and confounders anecdotes from users are literally meaningless.

Lets say this suit does work and block your EM field, which it may, wouldn't your cell phone, bow sight illuminator, GPS, watch, and every other piece of electronics put out way more EMF energy than your body?

I'm certainly not saying this can't work at all, but the evidence behind it seems lacking

We have to ask ourselves questions when it comes to these types of conversations.

1. Do we know exactly what deer see. All their senses?
2. How do they react to all of these?
3. Do animals show alarm when they see something unfamiliar in their habitat? (yes they do!)

That's why it's so important to put a blind up early to get nature used to seeing it as to not spook them.

I am not a scientist but I do have common sense. I also do my research if I don't have answers.

The human body does put off an EMF. How big? I don't know. Who can see it? I don't know. If animals do see it, how do they react to it? I don't know.

However, what I do know is how to look up information. It's too easy to say blah blah blah, it doesn't work.

To me, a person looks so much more intelligent and mature if they respond IDK or yes I have experience, here is what happened. There are too many people on here that are keyboard warriors and have zero credibility with anything they say. It's like trying to explain exactly what its like on an aircraft carrier during WWII but all you have to go on is books and somebody-else opinion/experience.

When I was in school, I was always required to cite my source when using qualified information. Especially if its science based.

I haven't been hunting as long as a lot of you guys. But this I do know. There are many factors that need to be dealt with to have an opportunity to harvest a deer. Increasing the percentage on each is all it does. There isn't any elixir or secret sauce that gets it done. I am still learning. I have had good and not so good experiences. That's how you gain wisdom.

You asked for reviews which is an opinion of someone. Then you tell people to cite sources.

Really? How about you go do all the research and scientific tests and get back to us.

I believe what the OP is saying is if you have no experience with the suit, he doesnít want to see negative reviews from people that have never even tried the product

Anybody's experience will be anecdotal at best. A person who uses the suit has zero "credibility" when it comes to the suit working. Far too many variables for any sort of actual data. The real way to see if the suit works would be to look up scientific studies that address the issue.

Plus anyone that spent any amount of money on that junk would swear it works to justify that stupid purchase

Not evidence that the suit works, but here is an interesting article on how some animals can see magnetic fields.

The fact that you use ďjunkĒ and ďstupidĒ at the end of your post tells everyone reading this thread that you are one of those people that poke holes in things without any research. You are the example of what I was trying to avoid when I first started this topic.

I got one given to me and tried it out a few times... in my opinion it’s just a scam. I noticed absolutely zero difference in animal behavior while wearing it than when not wearing it.

I’d never pay money for it if I were you. I gave mine to a friend. He used it a bit and dropped it off at goodwill.

Lol that was a joke. The fact that you say you want research but ask for anecdotal opinions from biased users shows you donít really want the scientific truth.

OMG. Here let me quote myself from the start. As you can see it says, if you DON'T have any experience with this product, there is no need to reply.

I thought that was very straightforward. I guess for some people you need to hold there hand.

Now this is the kind of reply I was wanting to get. Real world experience. Not just, I wouldn't waste your money.

We have plenty that are willing to say its great or its not. There however aren't enough people willing to say why and can back it up.
