Schoeller® Keprotec®+ more info
Zip-No™+ more info
Keprotec® is fabric taken to the extreme. In fact, it's often used in sports such as motorcylce racing because of its extreme abrasion and tear resistance. When it came time to design the Badlands Black Series of tactical packs, we sent search parties far and wide to find just such a material. We didn't know what they'd come back with or if they'd even come back alive. They returned triumphantly with Keprotec® in hand and Badlands Black was born. The absolute best in durability at an astoundingly light weight. Badlands and Keportec® are changing the tactical game one pack at a time.
Zippers are everywhere and most of the time they are the best closure system you can have. "Most" of the time didn't quite satisfy us however. There were times in the field when we needed something faster, quieter and one-hand friendly. Over 8 years of research and development led to the creation of Badlands Zip-No™ Technology. Using rare-earth magnets (the strongest on the planet), we developed a process in which we could bend them into rope like strands. The result is a zipperless system that can be opened and closed silently with one hand and quicker than any zipper could ever be. When stealth and timing is everything, Zip-No can be the difference between coming out heavy or with just a heavy heart.
