This Hunting Hat is Tops

late season hunting

“Some people just don’t like hoods,” explained avid big game hunter and ScentLok Marketing Director, Steve Allie. Maybe it’s the deficit of maximum peripheral vision. Or possibly the sound dampening. Could even be that restrictive feeling you get turning your noggin from side to side. Whichever, ScentLok’s new BE:1 Insulated Hat provides hood-like protection…without the hood. By the way, the BE in BE:1 stands for “bowhunter elite.”

New to ScentLok’s premium BE:1 collection, the BE:1 Insulated Hat is founded on 80g of PrimaLoft® Silver insulation. Fabricated through the advanced recycling of plastic bottles (nearly 700 million since 2015), PrimaLoft Silver provides exceptional warmth for its weight and has unmatched thermal properties.

Beyond its intrinsic warmth and comfort, the BE:1 Insulated hat is also windproof and waterproof, taking cues from the performance of a hood. “It was crucial for us to make the hat windproof and waterproof,” said Steve. “Our DryLok® waterproof and windproof membrane handles those often encountered drizzles and nasty winds you get late in the hunting season.” ScentLok’s DryLok® waterproof and windproof membrane is a signature technology in several current parkas, jackets, bibs, and pants.  

ScentLok included another cornerstone technology in the new BE:1 Insulated Hat: Carbon Alloy®. The proprietary technology offers continuous adsorption of odors by combining treated carbon, activated carbon, and zeolite to adsorb odors emitted by your body.

Flanking the inside of the DryLok waterproof membrane is an ultra-warm long nap fleece lining. Outside, you’ll find a premium, smooth and comfortable polyester outer fabric.

Structurally, a paneled design yields a secure fit, while the BE:1 Insulated Hat’s structured brim provides shade for improved field vision and an added defense against precipitation.

All said, its most memorable feature is the neck coverage. The extended neck protection does what most hunting hats can’t – shield your neck from cold winds.

The best-in-class BE:1 Insulated Hat is available in Realtree Excape, Mossy Oak Terra Gila, and Mossy Oak Terra Outland patterns.
