Badlands has earned the reputation as one of the top companies in the hunting industry.[/caption]
One of the most notable and trusted manufacturers of hunting gear has to be Badlands Packs
. Top pros in a variety of shooting sports consistently tout their Badlands gear as an essential piece to their hunting system. Like most companies, their rise has been marred by adversity and challenges. Like all successful companies they have consistently answered the call when adversity came their way.
Reading the history of Badlands Packs is like reading a blended version of a Steve Jobs and Cousin Eddie success story. Their first manufacturing center was a 10-foot by 20-foot storage shed they rented. At this point in order to mold their plastic they rigged up ovens to soften the plastic. As their website reads:
“To this day we’re not sure if we were running on sheer adrenalin or the constant toxins wafting from the ovens.“
No matter their circumstance their gear always stood on its own two feet. Armed with little more than a dream, the team was able to push through the rough years. Eventually Badlands became the renowned pack company they are today.
The story of Badlands Packs is ongoing. They have hit a recent surge in popularity and have capitalized on the momentum. Technology, performance, and quality are the mantras of the company. In an exploding industry Badlands looks to not only push the envelope for design but also in quality. They personally test all their equipment in the mountains outside their headquarters. By the sounds of it, if your pack undergoes the same treatment as their test packs, you are trying to break it. This type of dedication to quality and commitment to its customers has set Badlands packs above the rest.

Badlands Packs currently offers a wide variety of gear for all hunting and camping excursions. Whitetail and turkey hunters will appreciate the small and comfortable design of the Badlands Ultra Light Stealth Backpack
. This pack is one of the smaller Badlands packs at only 1750 cubic inches of space. That being said, most local hunts don’t require a large capacity to carry the necessary gear. The Ultra Light Stealth backpack is a nice sized day pack.
Another option at the other end of the spectrum is the Badlands 2200 Camo Hunting Pack. This pack is the pack that put Badlands on the map. With a considerable amount of room, this pack is easily able to accommodate the demands of multi day trips. It also comes standard with all of the quality and comfort Badlands Packs has come to be known for.
