Getting the job done during the extremes of the late-season requires pulling out all the stops. Leave nothing to chance; the ScentLok Bowhunter Elite Series Fortress Parka makes it possible for bowhunters to not only endure the frigid temperatures, biting winds, and driving snow, ice, and sleet of the late season, it allows them to thrive in it.

Designed and built for elite bowhunters willing to put in the time it takes to outsmart big-beamed bucks, the 100% waterproof, windproof, and breathable BE:1 Fortress Parka features a soft, quiet, and flexible brushed fleece shell fabric, thermal-mapped PrimaloftTM Silver insulation for perfect warmth, and proprietary ScentLok Carbon AlloyTM technology for maximum odor adsorption. Purposely tailored for optimum bowhunting performance, the BE:1 Fortress Parka is engineered with compression and sculpting for minimal bulk, ten pockets for storing gear and warming hands, plus a concealed opening to keep the safety harness secure and close to the body while providing maximum scent control. Extremely archery-friendly, the BE:1 Fortress Parka’s articulated elbows ensure exceptional comfort and range of motion throughout the draw, while the articulated hood’s three-piece construction reduces bulk and allows for a positive anchor point.  

The BE:1 Fortress Parka is the late-season cold-weather bowhunting parka that checks every box. It’s available in three camo patterns and ten sizes to meet the distinct needs of any hunter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second Review after full season of use I'm writing this second review after having used this suit for a full season. The first was based off of initial reactions. The good: the suit is very warm. When I pulled the hood up I really was toasty. Unfortunately that's it. The Bad: when I tested this suit initially I left it outside in 20 degree weather for several hours and did not notice any of the creaking other reviews have mentioned. However, after sitting in this suit for more than 80 hours, I have to confirm it creaks louder than any suit I've ever worn. I could hear every breath I took. They have the membrane stretched so tight that there's no way it could be quiet when and friction is applied. Especially since that creaking gets even louder when cold. It also gets very cold, and the problem with that is that there is not a lot of insulation between the membrane and the pockets. So when your hands are in the pockets you can really feel how cold that membrane is. They should add several layers of insulation between the pocket and the membrane. I found most of the pockets to be unusable due to this. All that said, it's a decent late season rifle suit but I don't see it being a sufficiently quiet bow suit. I wish I could return it for a refund but alas, I'm stuck with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They don't call it the Fortress for nothing This is by far the warmest & quietest waterproof Parka I have ever worn. The windproof membrane works and Pockets are in the perfect spot. I have owned the MT050 & UA Gunpower Jacket. Those kept me dry but did stop the wind or made a lot more noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking forward to years of use! I could go on for days on the benefits of this jacket and it’s combination with the fortress bibs. Very warm for how compact the design is. I am an avid bow hunter and this product will allow me to sit through the brutal Michigan winters without sacrificing the ability to draw back my bow die to bulk winter gear. I can sit all day and stay warm in my fortress gear, no question.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I gave it 4 stars ONLY because i thing they could have done a different cuff design and made it more slinder, also the zipper is hard to get started and seems undersized (light duty) for the large coat. As far as comfort and warm ill give that 5 stars all day. Its on the pricey side but definitely quiet and worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fortress Jacket I bought this jacket for the windy, cold winter days that I hunt in. It did fine in Temps that are 30 degrees and above but once it got colder than that, the material got very noisy when trying to move and draw a bow back. It does an excellent job of cutting the wind. One improvement would be the wrist cuffs. They need to be made more similiar to the Divergent Jacket. The Divergent is the best Jacket for the weather I hunt in but I don't like it in a Pull Over. If it was a zip up, it would be perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Only problem is this suit is designed for tall skinny people. I'm 5/8 and 200 lbs. Med is to tight and the large are over a foot long I'm the legs. I would recommend if you are 6 ft and 170 lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent cold weather coat Excellent late season cold weather coat. Heavy quilt like feel for when the weather gets down into the 20’s and teens or 30’s with a cold wind. I can see it being a little noisy as some other reviews say but I haven’t had an issue with it. I have a little issue with the zipper, it doesn’t want to start or disconnect easily. If it wasn’t for the zipper issue and possibly being a little noisy I would have given it five stars. Very warm soft coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I have been hunting over 20 years and this jacket is hands down the best jacket I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. It was freezing cold and I stayed warm the entire time I was in the woods. I didn't need gloves the majority of my hunt either because I would just stick my hands in my jacket. I will most likely be buying a second set of the Fortress attire. If you like to hunt cold temps for extended periods of time then this is a must buy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisey I thought the people giving noisey reviews may have been a little extreme, until I wore coat in cold weather. The noise your hands make in the pockets is crazy. Sounds like a new leather jacket squeaking. This coat has everything I have looked for and waited a long time to get it. I am struggling with keeping it or sending it back. I hunt out of a box blind, it won’t spook deer, but is seriously annoying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BE:1 Fortress Sleeves are very short, disproportionate to the size of the torso. At full draw draw they pull up way past the wrist. No other wardrobe piece I own (for hunting, and non hunting) does this at an XL for me. Other than the serious sleeve length issue it is solid. Warm, good camo, like the pockets and opening in the back for my safety harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best suit ever! I’ve had this suit now for 2 seasons. I call it my killin suit. I’ve taken 4 bucks in it in 3 states. You will have zero issues sitting alllllll day long in this suit. Great fit. It’s tapered in the right areas and really isn’t bulky even though it’s a thick suit. Snow, light rain, zero problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Defective product, otherwise nice and warm. The coat itself if very nice and warm, not to bulky. My issue is that I received what I can only assume is a defective coat with two front zippers that don't allow me to fully unzip the front of the coat. Because of this I have to put it on like a pullover jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works The suit performed almost flawlessly in 20 degree sleet/snow and high winds. Kept me dry and was wind proof. Only complaint I have is wish the pockets on chest wear easier to get into and the pockets on the front were at slight angle for ease of in and out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect for cold hunts Very warm, needs magnetic pockets instead of snaps and zippers(at least one), would be nice to have zippers under the armpits to allow airflow when hiking. Waterproof lining is a little noisy. Overall super warm and seems durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Truth about parka! The parka met my expectations but did not exceed them. I will be following up after the winter hunting for coyotes for. A further review on expert voice. The zippers on all of my new scentlok purchases are junk. The over laps are too close to the zipper and get stuck on a regular basis, when this happens you have to be careful to back it up and over time it frays the ends. This starts the onslaught of tough zippering and for the main zipper to have this issue was disappointing. I love how many pockets are on this jacket but that can be a nightmare just as much as a blessing. The hood is bulky and cumbersome for putting binos over and when used your perifferals are blocked. However the inside is so large when you turn your head the hood doesn’t move. This presents an issue because added movement is necessary to look to the left and right when using the hood. Either turn at the waist or pull back the hood. This is hunting apparel anything that causes added movement is a con! I never got cold. This thing is as warm as any jacket I have ever worn. This was the main reason for my purchase so there were no complaints about that. The cuffed zippers open up on there own. Frustrating when trying to zip it back up when your wearing the garment. And because the zippers are so small it becomes an issue when the zipper hangs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold In MO Exactly the hunting coat I was hoping for to use in Missouri during late season hunts. It is super warm, quiet, and comfortable. I had my eye on this coat for quite some time and could not be happier with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great late season warmth This jacket is extremely warm and comfortable. I've been wearing it with temperatures in the 10's to 20's with a good base layer and it keeps me warm and not sweaty. A must have for filling late season tags.
