CT450 fabric is softer and quieter than comparable fabrics, yet tough enough to survive the abuse from the most punishing destinations. The real difference is how it retains its supple feel and quiet characteristics in temperatures well below zero. A specially designed lamination process makes the fabric waterproof without compromising durability or quietness. CT450's unparalleled low-nap, micro-warp finish is guaranteed against pilling and will not collect burrs, seeds and other clingy vegetation. CT450 coupled with such features as reinforced seams, heavy-duty zippers with silent pulls and high-grade webbing, make this pack an ideal choice for today's mobile sportsmen.
A sponge absorbs water - that is, the entire
sponge soaks in and retains the water. Conversely, adsorption,
which is what takes place with activated charcoal in
Scent-Lok®, is the capturing of matter by the surface of a
solid. The surface of activated charcoal is an extensive labyrinth
of different size pores, nooks and crannies that trap and hold
gases, vapors and dissolved matter (all forms of human scent).
Activation (or technically, reactivation) is the process of heating
this surface to high temperatures. This releases the trapped scent
molecules and reopens the pores, nooks and crannies for future
