With industry insiders and celebrities all gathered under one roof, the show is a real "who's who" of the archery industry.

Here's a few that we highlighted at the show today.

Downpour Jacket and Pant Set

downpourBoth the jacket and pant feature a new waterproof, breathable fabric technology based on a super micro brushed tricot fabric membrane. This incredible membrane is tested to a hydrophilic rating of 10,000mm waterproofing, and 10,000mm MVT breathability ensuring comfort when temperatures are warm or when you are on the move. Renown for attention to detail, the jacket also features double lay elbow fabric for durability and a ScentBlocker draw tight hood design that is adjustable three ways so peripheral vision remain intact, but keeps the elements out. The hood also has an inner collar whether the hood is up or down, comfort remains. The adjustable cinching neoprene cuffs feature hook and loop for a perfect fit, while a wide storm-flap over the front zipper allows for a comfortable, watertight sit. Proving no detail is too small, the roomy front bellow pockets even have a separate hand warmer pouch. Of course Downpour is tree-stand ready with a safety harness slit, complete with flap to bar moisture entry.

Its not a suit unless it has pants, and the Downpour leaves nothing to be desired. Same incredible membrane fabric, with a double layered seat for durability, and generous pocket space, with two strategically placed slanted pockets on the rear, and two angled pockets on the front, and two more on the legs. The fly features quiet double rubberized snaps and a zipper built to hold fast. All zippers on the Downpour are superior YKK Aquagard and fine toothed to maintain quiet while on stand. Finally, the 20” leg zippers provide easy access to footwear, with a innovative pull straps allowing perfect adjustment and fit for whatever footwear you choose. 


drencherPerfect as stand alone rain gear, or in a system layered approach - Drencher gear will keep everything on the inside warm and dry, while repelling rain, sleet, and snow. Designed by hardcore hunters who refuse to be limited, the Drencher is made with a new configuration of water proof, breathable, lightweight fabric and it’s cut is as flexible, mobile and quiet, as the day is long. The complete solution includes a jacket, pant and new for 2016, a Drencher bib-overall which extends flexibility and prevents wind and weather from entry in any situation. The updates to the Drencher series reflect ScentBlocker’s tradition of minuscule attention to detail and use of innovative technologies to develop the very best products. Refusing limitation, not only is Drencher available in your favorite Realtree™ and Mossy Oak™ camouflage patterns, but also in ever-popular Blaze Orange.

To compliment and complete ScentBlocker’s wet weather hunting apparel is another new addition for 2016 - the introduction of the eternal favorite Outfitter series RainBlocker hand Muff. Ready for more than wet weather, its packed with 3M® Thinsulate Platinum insulation; and as if that is not enough to keep warm, hand warmer ready internal pockets. It also includes external pockets complete with YKK zippers for loose items, and a convenient adjustable strap to hold the Outfitter Muff around the neck or waist and ready for action.

For particularly nasty weather situations an insulated version of the Drencher is also available. Drencher Jacket and Pant also available in youth and ladies.
