I will be the first one to admit I am a gadget guy, and by that admission, I must also admit I am always over eager to try out the new “gimmick” products. Granted, a lot of them turn out to be just that, a gimmick. But every once in a blue moon, there is a product that comes along that is truly revolutionary. The HECS Stealthscreen lineup of clothing fits that mold perfectly. Revolutionary gear that once you own, you will refuse to enter the woods without it.
So what exactly is the HECS Suit? Well, before I answer that question, let me ask you another. Have you ever had that perfect treestand location, nestled into a cedar tree, astand you only hunt on a certain wind direction, a stand that sits on the side of a cliff where zero deer could ever get down wind of you? Yet somehow, when that first doe walks out in the field, she immediately starts acting nervous, alert, it’s like she knows you’re there? Have you ever experienced a deer with that “6th” sense? I think it’s safe to say that most of us have, but what exactly is it? And how can we beat it.
It has been scientifically proven that all living creatures emit an electrical energy signal. It is also widely accepted that all living creatures can sense those electrical energy signals. Even humans can to an extent, but unlike wild game animals, our senses are not as keen, or at least not as honed due to a lack of necessity. Studies conducted by HECS show, with certainty, that electrical energy detection is the infamous “6th sense”. Suddenly, top of the line camo and meticulous scent control are no longer enough. As if a deer’s eyesight and nose weren’t hard enough to fool, we now have to worry about something innate within each of us that cannot be controlled? Enter HECS.
I said above that the HECS Suit was a revolutionary product and it has changed the way I hunt, but the question still exists, what exactly is the HECS Suit and how does it change the way I hunt? The answer lies within the name HECS itself, Human Energy Concealment System. Simply put, the HECS Suit is designed for one purpose, and one purpose only, to conceal the electrical energy signal your body emits. HECS achieves this by utilizing a well-known and commonly used principle known as the Faraday Cage. This technology was invented in 1836 by a scientist named Michael Faraday and has since been used throughout numerous industries to successfully block electromagnetic signals from being transmitted from one subject to another. In our case, from us as hunters to whatever game we are pursuing.
