Today, ScentLok and Mossy Oak announce a new, strategic collaboration with DICK'S Sporting Goods culminating with a special, all-season system called the ScentLok Maverick. This special-make jacket and pant unit is a collaborative effort from all three companies to deliver the best gear for the die-hard whitetail hunter.
The ScentLok Maverick system starts out with a single-layer, brushed shell that is virtually silent and married a long-pile fleece inside that provides a layer of warmth. The fabric is treated with a durable water repellency treatment that easily sheds moisture. Embedded into the fabric is patented Carbon Alloy technology that has been shown to block up to 99.8% of human odors tested*. The fabric is finished with the new Mossy Oak Break-Up Country for unprecedented concealment.
Mossy Oak Break-Up Country combines digitally enhanced, life-sized natural elements with the perfect color tones to help you blend in and shadowing elements that truly break up your outline like no other pattern available today. Break-Up Country is adaptable to a number of hunting situations and light periods throughout the day.
"We really wanted the Maverick to be more than great technologies," said ScentLok Vice President of Marketing Nick Andrews. "So we added features that experienced bowhunters need in the field. Like four oversized, zippered pockets that keep all your gear close and secure. We sculpted the shoulders and arms to naturally work when drawing a bow and setting your anchor point without restriction. The zippered cuffs eliminate the bulk and keep everything contained and comfortable around the forearm. In the back, we added a safety harness opening so that you can wear your harness closer to your body for increased safety in addition to covering any odors that may have built up on it as well."
The $169.99 Maverick system is available exclusively at 250 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores, DICKS.com, and all Field and Stream stores.
"We work extensively with our partners and manufacturer's to provide the absolute best products for great prices," added Andrews. "We understand the investments that go into participating in the sport we love. That's why we work hard every day to keep our prices reasonable and attainable for the general public. I've seen products with no odor adsorption technology rising to $300 and above! That's insane if you ask me."
Mossy Oak and ScentLok have also teamed up with Fear No Evil television hosted by Chris Brackett airing on the Outdoor Channel.
"This is my go-to suit for the season," stated Chris Brackett. "They really thought of everything in this suit, from the articulation to the weight…it's nearly perfect for my entire season."
