The Men's ScentLok Bowhunter Elite Fortress Parka is built for late-season hunts. The BE1 parka is waterproof, windproof, and breathable, providing excellent protection from the elements while remaining incredibly comfortable. For maximum warmth, the Fortress parka has mapped ThinsulateTM insulation that adds more insulation near the core and less on the arms for a more natural range-of-motion. Ten pockets provide plenty of room for storing your hunting gear, while a concealed safety harness opening makes the jacket easy to use with a treestand. Designed for unbeatable warmth with minimal bulk, the Men's ScentLok Bowhunter Elite Fortress Parka is ultra-quiet, waterproof, and windproof for all-day comfort on your hunt.

*The Bowhunter Elite Series features the NEW Realtree Excape camouflage pattern. Excape is the first non-stick and leaf pattern that Realtree has released. This unique color palette and pattern was designed for maximum concealment in the whitetail woods from the early to late season. Realtree and ScentLok partnered together to make this new camouflage pattern available only at SCHEELS.
The bibs and jacket are incredibly warm as well as completely water and wind resistant. Tons of pockets in each piece. It does come with a bit of bulk which may hinder the desire to use the suit while walking certain distances. The fleece certainly helps eliminate noise. Overall a great option for super cold weather hunting. I hunt northern climates so it should get plenty of use!
Very nice Jacket. The large fit well, I am 5’ 7” 195lbs. Fit well over layers and bibs. Not 100% quiet, there is some noise from the fabric within the jacket. I do not believe it resonates throughout the woods though. It is just in your ear at times. Did not bother the deer that walked under me that I had to turn and raise my gun. The deer never flinched. Multiple pockets which are good sized and well placed. Camo pattern and color is perfect. Outside fabric is quiet. At 20+ degrees warm enough for a 4 hour sit, with very little movement. Very happy with Jacket, money well spent.
I have tried numerous late season jackets, finally moving on to men's as I had no luck with women's. My problem is that I can't seem to find any insulated jackets which are warm enough yet quiet enough for bow hunting. This one failed along with all the rest. If you are just looking for warmth this should fit the bill, but if you are also looking for quiet keep looking.
