The Clutch is a loaded with features, functionality, and versatility. It is rated as 2,900ci, but with that only accounts for its internal storage – because of this pack’s design you’ll be able to load the Clutch up with much more than 2,900ci worth of gear. The internal frame is made of T-6 aircraft aluminum and the total weight is 7lb 4oz.

The Summit is the next generation of Badlands’ legendary 4500 pack. The Summit features a new design, new materials, and a new frame with an AirTrack suspension. This is a beast of a pack at an impressively light weight, which was achieved thanks to the Summit’s polycarbonate frame and use of 900 Denier ripstop fabric.

Badlands entered the hunting apparel market for the first time in 2012, and they are continuing to improve and expand the line for 2013. (Check out my Badlands apparel reviews.) Production has been moved to a new factory, which has already proven to turn out higher quality, and Badlands has introduce some new technologies into the apparel, including their “4X” technology to manage scent containment. The 4X technology includes SRS Silver treatment, body mapping to target key areas on the body that produce scent, and the use of natural odor inhibitors such as bamboo and coffee fibers.
