ThermaCELL’s Stand-Out Blaze Orange Holster

New blaze orange ThermaCELL holster reduces the chance of leaving the device in your stand.

If you’re not familiar with ThermaCELL, it’s a simple device you wear or keep near you while hunting to repel biting insects. It creates a 15 x 15 foot zone of protection that is up to 98 percent effective against mosquitoes and other bloodsuckers. They operate on a single butane cartridge that heats a mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural insect repellent found in chrysanthemums. Each mat contains enough repellent for four hours of protection and each butane cartridge operates the unit for 12 hours.

With more hunters relying on ThermaCELL outdoor comfort technology as their choice for effective area insect repellent, there has been interest in a convenient and highly visible holster. ThermaCELL has solved the problem with the introduction of a blaze orange holster with clip.

The blaze orange holster with clip is compatible with all ThermaCELL full-size appliances and ThermaSCENT devices. The unmistakably bright blaze orange material makes it compliant with firearms hunting regulations and ensures that it will not be left behind or forgotten.

The heavy-duty clip on the back of the holster is extremely sturdy and rotates 360° to adjust the appliance for optimal positioning. The holster can be worn on a belt or a pack when walking and is easily taken off while on your stand. It attaches to just about anything, including fences, branches, tree stands or lawn chairs. The side pockets on the holster hold two butane refills and an elastic trim allows users to quietly remove the appliance and the refills without creating any unnecessary noise.

The new ThermaCELL blaze orange holster will be available in the fall of 2012 at a MSRP of $11.99.
