Hunting: Warmth on Demand

Available now, NEW ScentLok BE:1 Reactor Vest Plus with built-in heating element delivers ideal warmth in any situation

MUSKEGON, Mich. (August 14, 2020) – For years, hunters have asked for on-demand insulation without the noise or bulk of traditional puff jackets. Enter last season’s debut of the ScentLok BE:1 Reactor Series: the elite bowhunter’s optimum choice for thermal-on-demand layering. Featuring hybrid designs with low-bulk insulation in the body’s core areas and stretch fabrics in areas of high activity, BE:1 Reactor Series apparel is easily worn as a stand-alone shell, or as layering pieces for additional warmth under other garments. Part of ScentLok’s pinnacle Bowhunter Elite (BE:1) Series, all BE:1 Reactor series garments feature ScentLok’s Carbon AlloyTM odor-adsorbing technology.

NEW BE:1 Reactor Vest Plus

Announced at ATA 2020 and available now, the new BE:1 Reactor Vest Plus represents a unique and exciting addition to the BE:1 Reactor lineup. The three-pocket ScentLok BE:1 Reactor Vest Plus has the same great features of the other high-performance BE:1 Reactor garments – Carbon Alloy odor-adsorbing technology, Thinsulate insulation, and quiet micro tricot fabric – plus the addition of built-in heating elements with three different hunter-controlled output options to provide the ideal amount of supplemental core warmth in any hunting situation.

Available in black or one of three popular camouflage patterns, the BE:1 Reactor Vest Plus plugs into any portable charging battery (not included) via USB cable, located conveniently inside the pocket at the waist. Simple control of the heating elements is provided by an exterior push button. Once activated, the button illuminates blue for the low setting (one push / 100˚-107˚ F), green for the mid setting (two pushes / 107˚-113˚ F), or red for the high setting (three pushes / 113˚-118˚ F).
