|A revolution in external frame technology, the Ox features a recurve aluminum frame that is shaped to offer a superior center of gravity while still being lightweight and mobile. We like to think of ourselves as scientists but without all those fancy degrees. Ergonomics, physics, biomechanical engineering, we’ll dabble in everything to make sure we’re producing the absolute best in load carrying technology. Remember that frame pack you took to scout camp 40 years ago? Well most “hunting pack companies” are still using that technology….not Badlands. In simple terms, this frame makes it possible to carry insane loads with surprising ease.
