Elite Mid-Layer Versatility

Available now, the reimagined ScentLok BE:1 Reactor Windproof Jacket advances the concept of warmth-on-demand for bowhunters

MUSKEGON, MI – October 7, 2022 – Experienced bowhunters understand that no single garment can do it all. That’s why many build an apparel “toolkit” from which they can select or combine individual pieces to optimize comfort in any conditions, from the sweltering heat of the early season through the stinging cold of the late season and anything in between. The most elite trust ScentLok BE:1 Bowhunter Elite garments – embodied with 30 years of experience in the delivery of advanced, bowhunter-friendly designs, ultra-silent high-performance fabrics, and unsurpassed ScentLok technologies – to maintain a proven-deadly advantage on any hunt.

Each BE:1 piece is carefully built to fulfill a specific role in the bowhunter’s arsenal. They’re tailored to deliver peak performance while working seamlessly with one another so a hunter can create the ideal combination for any conditions. Whether it’s all day sits, heat, driving snow, soaking rains, or sub-freezing temperatures, the premium BE:1 toolkit allows hunters to sit longer, get closer, and earn more moments of truth.

Meet the Reimagined ScentLok BE:1 Reactor Windproof Jacket

ScentLok introduced the BE:1 Reactor Series in 2019 to solve the problem of delivering versatile, on-demand insulation for effective mid-layering while minimizing the noise and bulk associated with other available options in the marketplace. Today, the redesigned BE:1 Reactor Windproof Jacket represents an exciting, new, and indispensable core of any successful bowhunter’s apparel toolkit. It retains the best features of the highly successful original BE:1 Reactor Jacket, while adding new ones that push performance even higher.

Like the original, this highly versatile jacket is designed for both stand-alone wear or layering beneath early-, mid-, or late-season outerwear and features Carbon AlloyTM, ScentLok’s most-advanced scent-control technology. Improved thermal performance comes from 133 grams of Primaloft® Silver low-bulk insulation and a cozy, new microfleece lining, while a new WindBrake® windproof design provides additional protection from the elements that cause the body to surrender heat. Up top, a new, ergonomically fitted scuba hood design fortifies the head and neck, further containing heat and human odor.

Tailored for minimal bulk and maximum mobility, the reimagined BE:1 Reactor Windproof Jacket pairs a premium and silent micro tricot fabric in the body and upper-arm areas with a stretch polyester cuff and waist. The result is a quiet and trim-fitting garment that still moves in all the ways bowhunters need it to, even when worn beneath other clothing. An extended tail, generous collar height, and three zippered pockets provide additional comfort and bowhunting utility.

The new ScentLok BE:1 Reactor Jacket is available in six sizes, three popular camo patterns and all-new Blackout to meet the needs and preferences of any hunter.
