There’s nothing worse for the olfactory senses than putting on the same Body Armor and Helmet day in, day out! The combination of heat, sweat and normal body odors add up to a horrendous smell caused by bacteria, mold and mildew. The Cure? IBA Vest N'Nelmet Fresh is simple to use: Clean the item to remove most of the oil and contamination, (if you have it, Baby Shampoo works well), spray the vest fabric, helmet harness and components with a heavy mist covering, let it dry overnight

    It doesn't help that much. You know better than I do, next day it smells the same.

    Sounds like they just need to take the time a SCRUB thier IBA. Of course it only takes about a day in Iraq to get dirty.

    Non-toxic, non-flammable, non-allergenic, non-corrosive, environmentally freindly, and according to others...does not work. Are we sure they are not selling water in a spray bottle with a label?

    Too expensive and no better than Febreze or clorox spray

    Not recommended. After an hour or so the next day, smells the same as it did prior to use of armor fresh. I air dry and use a citrus orange spray to neutralize the daily wear.

    I have tried this on and off over the years ever since its release on military store shelves. It sucks it is not a cleaner so you must clean gear completely to even have a effect from this product think of it as 1 day odor eliminator that is all it is most military personal that have used it are like me in opinion and use freebreeze and simple green they work better and used to clean gear on top of that so better effect.

    this is a conveniently sized bottle, but Fabreeze will do the same thing. Also I like the fact that Armor Fresh is unscented.

    Febreeze man, Febreeze. It's cheap and works great and the bottle will last 15 times longer than that small bottle..
