Turn your hunting clothes into a high-powered scent elimination suit with Scent Killer Gold. 99 per cent effective at stopping replicated human odour in pass through testing at Rutgers University (New Jersey), up to 20 days after drying.
To simulate real life hunting situations, testing determined how much of the odour was stopped from passing through Scent Killer Gold treated fabric, preventing it from going into the air where a game animal could potentially detect it.
In testing at Rutgers University, replicated human odour was used, representing known constituents of actual human odour based on scientific studies. Perfect for real life hunting situations.

Zero Compromise Optics
New to RUAG’s distribution portfolio, Zero Compromise is a specialty scope company working with technologically advanced optical and mechanical designs. Every scope is subject to extreme real-world testing such as impact and vibration before leaving the facility.
The range includes the ZC527, which yields ones of the widest fields of view in the industry – 21ft at 100yds – while negating the curvature of field that plagues other designs.
Superb light transmission and exceptional resolution are only two attributes that perfectly complements the very best mechanical performance.
The ZC420 combines superior optical performance with unmatched mechanical precision and the most robust durability to handle even the hardest recoil.
The compact package can rival much larger rifle scopes and is ideally suited for any rifle platform where size and weight are of primary concern. The low-end magnification delivers an expansive 28ft field of view for quick target acquisition.
