Odor Gladiator works!  I noticed the difference the first time I pulled on my gear after dropping an OG in my bag.  I kept smelling my shirt thinking someone snuck fabric softener in the wash.  It turned out to be coming off my gloves!  My girlfriend appreciated it too."

The thing I like most about the Odor Gladiator is that I do not have to worry about it.  I just toss it in my hockey bag and I know it is not going to leak or ruin my equipment.  My bag smells fresh and I love the results."

I love using my Odor Gladiator!  I just toss it in my bag and it fights the fight against odor on long weekends of MLL lacrosse."

Anthony Kelly
Professional Lacrosse Player

"

If you’ve been around the game, you knows how bad hockey gear smells...it stings the nostrils.  No one enjoys being around a bunch of open hockey bags, and until now there has not been any way to effectively deal with the stench. 

When my Dad asked me to try Odor Gladiator, I assumed it was just another gimmick.  However, after just one night I opened my bag to a fresh, welcoming scent.  I truly was impressed and never want to be without my Odor Gladiator again!"

Shane Davis
Professional Inline Hockey Player

Pat Taylor

I got my Odor Gladiator just in time for a weekend roadtrip to Rochester.  Playing in a downpour, my gear was soaking wet overnight and usually that leads to that distinct lacrosse bag smell.  But the Odor Gladiator was able to fight it off and my bag smelled fresh the next morning!"

Jordan Burke

"

Odor Gladiator is rocking my stench!"

Tyler Richards
Professional Lacrosse Player
Port Coquitlam, BC Canada

"

Thanks for developing a clever and inexpensive gadget for my son's 'hazmat' bag.  We've put it to the test, and while it doesn't make things smell quite like Chanel No. 5, it is a serious improvement from where we were a couple of weeks ago (i.e., no more corpse in the trunk). 

Cool look, too, and the inexpensive refills make it a practical solution; no more throwaway gadgets; no more chemical sprays or detergents.  Nice job!  We're spreading the word!"

John Hollway

The Odor Gladiator is a cool addition to my bag. I have been playing lacrosse almost my whole life, and for the first time my equipment bag doesn't stink! This little guy is a must have."

Erik Holt

"

And let me tell you, it works. Normally, that corner of the garage where I keep my hockey equipment smells like a biochemical hazard zone, even though I’ve got most of my gear hung on hooks to dry nicely. With the Odor Gladiator on the job, The Stench is simply… gone.  It’s not simply masked by some flowery perfume, it’s actually gone."

Dirk Hoag

"

I opened up my gear bag almost exactly one month after winning this beautiful trophy in Prague, and guess what?...... IT SMELLED GREAT!! No kidding, this thing is unreal."

"

This product is not just a product that masks odor; it ELIMINATES odor.  It's become habit to unzip my daughter's lax bag after a tournament day to let the Odor Gladiator work on both her items and the inside of my car on our rides home.  This thing's a hit in the Florida lax market!"

 Bud Zuberer

"

LOVE IT!  As my 12-year-old son was taking his bag out of the car after a game he actually said 'My bag smells good!'  We definitely will be ordering extras soon!"

Packing up for the trip down to Charlotte.  Got my Odor Gladiator ready for the summer!  It's a must have."

Joe Walters

"

I threw my Odor Gladiator into my soccer bag last night and it's already making a difference.  I've used powders and other things before that haven't done anything and sprays that just add a second scent to the sweat smell.  I'm loving the OG as the scent isn't overpowering and is doing the job that it promised!  You have a great product that I recommend to everyone."

Dan Shirley
Collegiate Goalie, Washington State University
Pullman, WA

"

I got the OG two days ago and not only does my bag smell great, but my whole car smells like clean linen.  Very impressive!  Thanks for the breath of fresh air that is now my gear!"

PJ Martin
Professional Lacrosse Player, Co-Founder of Uncommon Fit
Hightstown, NJ

"

Roller derby is a very strenuous sport. If you have ever been around any player after practice (and sometimes before), you know the smell of their gear is nothing to be desired.  I found Odor Gladiator in my son's lacrosse magazine.  I went to their website and researched the product, reviewed some testimonials and decided to give it a try. 

I am amazed by this product.  It truly does work.  I opened my gear bag after it was zipped up all weekend with my smelly gear in it and WOW!  What an awesome smell.  Even my helmet smelled great!  I recommend this product to anyone looking to make their gear and bag smell 100% better!"

Thanks for making my bag smell 1,000 times better than the inside of my socks!"

Max Schmidt

"

I have been using the Odor Gladiator for about 6 months now and I can honestly say that my equipment room has never smelt better.  It really takes away a lot of that stink and that can only be a good thing!  I highly recommend you get an Odor Gladiator.  You will not be disappointed!"

Nathan Sung

"

Not sure how I made it through high school and college lax without the Odor Gladiator -- it cuts right through the funk in my old gear bag...DEFINITELY a requirement for our Badger team.  Add us to your list of happy customers!"

"

My gear used to smell like the south end of a donkey going north.  Now Odor Gladiator has looked after all of that!"

Kyle Ross
Professional Lacrosse Player

"

As an athlete, I have used a variety of sprays, detergents and other products to try to crush the stench of my lacrosse equipment.  None of these products has come close to working as well as Odor Gladiator.  My bag has never smelled better!"

Jason LaShomb

"

Triathletes have to worry about strength, endurance, rest, nutrition, pace, etc.  The last thing they need to worry about is their smell.  Odor Gladiator gives me the triple protection I need, whether it is dirty clothes in my cycling gear, wet clothes in my swim gear, or sweaty clothes in my running gear."

 Phil Strauss
 Ironman Triathlete
 San Francisco, CA

"

As a former lacrosse player who went through bottles of Febreze every season, I wish I had the Odor Gladiator back in my playing days. As a current lacrosse official who lives out of the backseat of my car, the OG has been phenomenal in keeping my car smelling fresh and pleasant.  Kudos to Mike for creating such a great product, and it looks cool!"

 Gordon Corsetti

"

Working for Inside Lacrosse and LaxLessons means I always have to have my gear ready to go.  Whether it's a quick instructional shoot, getting on by Stanwick and Pannell, or doing a clinic; my lax bag is always on hand.  Thanks to my OG I'm no longer embarrassed carrying my bag into the fancy IL offices or having to pick up a date in my car."

As President of the Pond Hockey Classic, I spend a lot of time around athletes.  And when I'm not leading tournaments, you're likely to find me on the ice.  Mike reached out last fall to discuss partnering with the Pond Hockey Classic.  I wanted to see what Odor Gladiator was all about, so I decided to give it a try. 

This product scores big.  First, I am impressed with Odor Gladiator's durability.  Hockey bags are tough environments.  They're not welcome homes for fragile solutions.  Mike's team came up with a smart design for jostling skates, helmets and pads. Second, this product actually works.  That's saying something in a market full of false promises and over-hyped solutions."

Scott Crowder
President, Pond Hockey Classic (and Hockey Player)

"

Very good product, Mike.  Our son is a senior and we are ALL glad that he has an Odor Gladiator in his lax bag.  I only wish you had developed the product years ago for his four older brothers and sisters!"

Dennis Yeatman
Director, Pacific Lacrosse
San Diego, CA

"

Our entire hockey locker room smelled better with the addition of just one Odor Gladiator in my son’s bag.  After well over a month of testing, my son reports 'I’ve got the best smelling bag of our whole team. By far.'”  (see The Trophy Mom's complete review here).

What do I like best?  That's easy.  Better smelling bus rides and sideline huddles.  We all breathe much easier thanks to your product."

Sean Buzzard

"

I put one in my son's bag a couple of days.ago and cannot believe the difference it made.  I just ordered two more for my vehicles and put a link to your site on our lacrosse club's website.  I am going to do a presentation at our next Board meeting and propose a fundraiser!"

The UK's first Odor Gladiator in Tridents Lax colours!  Big thanks to OG.  Customer service has been out of this world!"

"

Both my husband and son play hockey.  Between the two of them, someone is on the ice nearly every day of the week.  And that made for a garage full of wet, stinky gear.  We gave Odor Gladiator a try on the recommendation of a neighbor.  That turned out to be solid advice.  Not only did it crush the awful stench, but it's lasting much longer than I ever expected (two months and counting!)  We're big fans of Odor Gladiator.  I have even purchased some as birthday gifts for my son's friends and they (and their parents) love them too.  What a great product!”

Well I didn't think after week one of Masters League I would break out the Gladiator; oh man, was I wrong!  This thing is godlike."

Rob Lynch, Sr.
Athlete, Upstate Outdoor Lacrosse League/Masters Division
Moravia, NY

"

My son plays elite hockey as well as hockey for his high school.  He's on the ice five times a week, and his hockey equipment barely dries and certainly smells.  Odor Gladiator works!  It is the best solution out there and reduces the ambient smell that is so strong.  Finally, a solution that isn't worse than the problem!"

Yves Portelance
Hockey Dad
Montreal, Quebec

"

I'm the father of three active children.  I'm also a long-time youth lacrosse coach, adult athlete and former Brown laxer.  So I've got a few bags in my life.  Prior to providing Odor Gladiators to my youth team, performing pre-game equipment checks and removing post-game gear was hazardous duty.  The stench reeked like gangrened foot!  I'm psyched to report that your product cleaned stink's clock.  Every lax season, this thing is going in every player's bag!"

Peter S.
Lacrosse Coach and Dad
McCandless, PA

"

Thank you Odor Gladiator!  I bought an OG about a month ago and got to try it out this week. We live in Texas but my son plays on Team Venom in Virginia during the summer. After two HOT and STINKY days of playing lacrosse in Dallas at T99, we drove three days to Virginia.  We DIDN'T smell any STINKY laxer smells.  And my van smelt good!  THANK YOU!"

Kim Byrne Whitt
Lacrosse Mom
Katy, TX

"

I purchased my Odor Gladiator at the Tier 1 Faceoff in Foxboro.  I was impressed from the moment I got it.  Mid tournament and after a long day on the ice, my son left his hockey bag in my car overnight.  But the next day, my car smelled fresh...not like a locker room!  Odor Gladiator saved me!"

Debra Giovannucci
Hockey Mom
South Grafton, MA

"

THANK YOU!  My son plays high school football and brings his clothes and equipment home in his gym bag.  In the past, this was an unpleasant task.  We dreaded the funk!  But since we have been using Odor Gladiator, it's become painless.  As a matter of fact, our vehicle smells better when we have his bag in our car!"

Peter P.

Oh, by the way, everybody wants my Odor Gladiator. These things are awesome!"

"

My son has been using the OG for a week and a half and it is working fantastic.  He has a practice or game pretty much every day and has two practices back to back on Mondays and Thursdays.  He loves that he can open his bag and not kill everyone in the room. 

Great product - Great service!  We look forward to using your product for many years to come."

Your Gladiator is a hit in the Shermont Thunder locker room!"

The stench from my daughter's soccer bag rivaled big brother's lax bag.  OG has easily conquered the funk, and now she says her bag smells 'delicious!'  It's a fun, simple and effective product that parents will like even more than their kids!"

"

Odor Gladiator is awesome.  I had my hockey bag in my car full of sweaty hockey gear.  We put the Odor Gladiator in the hockey bag and could not smell anything.  It was like the hockey bag wasn't even in the car.  The Odor Gladiator is a great product."

Brian M.
Hockey Dad
Mars, PA

Many of our customers use Odor Gladiator to battle non-sports odors.  They share their experience below:

"

I am active with Golden Retriever rescue, and am often transporting wet or stinky dogs.  I keep my Gladiator in the trunk of my car and place on the floor of the back seat to roll around during a "smelly" transport.  Then I remove the Gladiator and pop it back into my trunk until my next transport.  Odor Gladiator has eliminated the need for sprays and other approaches that can damage the leather in my car.  I highly recommend Odor Gladiator for reduction of pet odors to other pet owners and my rescue network."

Thanks for a great and portable solution to pet odors!"

"

When I first used Odor Gladiator with my kitty litter, I called it magical.  Within 20 minutes all cat smell was gone, replaced by a faint, but pleasant fragrance.  Now, two months later, I've upgraded my opinion to miraculous. I just changed it, not because I had to, but after that much time I just thought I ought to!"
