Badlands' KXO-32™ Fabric
After 31 attempts at creating the ultimate hunting fabric, we nearly gave up. Turns out 32 tries was the charm. Badlands' KXO-32 fabric is tough, waterproof, incredibly quiet, and lightweight, too.
Aramid Bartacking on Stress Points
Badlands chose this thread because a single strand of Aramid fiber can hold more than 100 pounds. Look for that yellow bartack reinforcing every stress point on our packs. Why yellow? Because it's so tough, it can't even be dyed. Hey, at least it's not pink.
With Badlands' AirTrack technology we build channels into the foam suspension, so air can effectively pass between your body and your pack. In addition, we use a breathable mesh over the foam as another layer of comfort and ventilation.
Keeping your gear from becoming saturated with water is the first step in keeping dry, warm, and comfortable in the field. Badlands’ C6 Durable Water Repellent (DWR) doesn’t allow moisture to seep into fabrics. Water beads and rolls off, keeping you dry, longer.
