The roots at Badlands run deep and many may not know, that the company started two decades ago making mountaineering packs for guides going up the likes of Everest, K2 and Denali. We learned two important lessons from those days. One: mountaineering equipment was light years ahead of anything else out there. Two: we liked hunting a lot more. Fast-forward to today and hunting pack technology has far surpassed mountaineering and we still love hunting more. None the less when designing the Point, we took many of the concepts and ideas which worked so well while scaling some northern face or a first ascent and fused them into this pack. It‘s simple, it‘s light and built like a brick $H!Thouse.. The suspension is based on our AirTrack™ System and offers a highly advanced zippered back panel access, making getting to your gear easier than ever. It is funny in life, how sometimes the longer you do something the more you realize, that less really is more.
