Formerly known as “Scentblocker®,” Blocker® uses similar carbon technology to ScentLok® in its odor control. Blocker® garments fall into two broad categories: the Shield® Series and the Scentblocker® Series. These garments are now available in the Mossy Oak® Elements Terra Outland® pattern. New for this year, the Shield® Packable Rain Jacket and Pant are designed to be packed into backpacks or similar storage and carried around. The jacket features Rainblocker® technology designed to keep the wearer dry and comfortable. The comfortable, lightweight polyester fabric gives four-way stretch for freedom of movement. The three-piece hood is adjustable for comfort. The full front zip with interior storm flap works to protect the wearer from the elements.
ScentLok has added many pieces to the Bowhunter Elite (BE:1) collection. The BE:1 is designed to provide layers for all seasons. Carbon Alloy technology lines each garment, adsorbing odors. The BE:1 Phantom Pullover and Pant are meant to be worn in the early season. The pullover features a lightweight, textured polyester body and upper arm as well as moisture-wicking features. The Silver Alloy tech of these garments inhibits the growth of bacteria. The BE:1 Blackout Series was made for hunters who use blinds with black interiors, since camo can often stand out against such backgrounds. In addition to completely black fabric, the garments in this series use black zippers and a black ScenLok logo on the chest. ScentLok had already retooled several mainstays of the line to be blacked out: the Reactor Windproof Jacket, the Trek Baselayers and more. The company also offers gloves, a ball cap and a headcover in pure black.
