Any endurance athlete or mechanic for that matter will tell you that the biggest threat you face when it comes to performing at peak levels is HEAT. It depletes your body of energy faster than any other factor. Badlands Hypervent Technology was designed to allow high volumes of air to pass between you and your pack. This allows you to stay cool and dry in even the most extreme environments and stay at those peak performance levels longer. Badlands Hypervent packs were also designed to wrap around your body's shape and work with your bodyâ€™s natural movement instead of against it. The result is long lasting comfort, increased stamina, reduced sweat and even reduced odor. Your friends will thank you, your prey will not.
Did you know that ripstop material is used in hot air balloons and in parachutes? Two activities in which you REALLY don't want your gear rippingâ€¦.so let's add hunting to that list. So it might not be life or death like skydiving but you might wish you were dead if your pack suddenly rips to shreds when it's filled with 100+ pounds of fresh elk and you still have 3 miles to go back to the truck! Our Ultralight Series of packs feature Nylon Ripstop Fabric for two reasons, to keep them ultralight (you probably already figured that out) and to put your mind at ease that your pack will take whatever load you throw at it. We're all about peace of mind here....and shooting stuff. We really love shooting stuff.
