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.
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.
Magnesium Alloy Stays are 2x Stronger than T6 Aluminum
Aircraft grade aluminum has been a go-to material for pack frames for years, due to its strength and minimal weight. Yet at Badlands, we thought we could do better, and we did. The proprietary magnesium alloy we use in our frame stays is twice as strong as T6 aluminum, and even lighter in weight.
Adjustable Waist Belt with Reverse Tightening
With the reverse tightening feature on our waist belts, you pull the belt's ends inwards, rather than outwards. This gives you the leverage you need to properly cinch your belt for maximum carrying comfort.
Bino Connect Compatible
You're already wearing a pack with a harness, so why wear another harness over or under that? With Badlands' Bino Connect System, you can connect your bino case directly to your pack harness, for a more comfortable carry.
T-Hook Attachment System
Amazingly simple. Super strong. Just slide the top of the "Ts" through the fabric loops on the pack frame to quickly fasten accessories to your Vario pack system.
