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.
Even in cooler weather, carrying a pack builds up a sweat. Badlands' Hypervent suspension actually pulls your pack away from your back, for a constant flow of cooling air. Where your body does come in contact with the pack, ventilated foam and a tough mesh fabric help continue the flow of air, keeping you cooler, dryer, and more comfortable.
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.
