Badlands Catalyst Pants - Approach FX

Everyone has a reaction to the Catalyst Pants. People just can't believe something so lightweight and so quiet can be 100 percent waterproof. Once people try them, they discover Catalyst Pants are more than waterproof. They're also tough, breathable, and some of the best lightweight, packable rain pants you could ever hope to pull on.

    • C6 DWR

    Keeping your gear from becoming saturated with water is the first step in keeping dry, warm, and comfortable in the field. Badlands’ C6 Durable Water Repellent (DWR) doesn’t allow moisture to seep into fabrics. Water beads and rolls off, keeping you dry, longer.

    • Heatwave™ Ceramic Liner

    In extreme cold, it’s easy to lose body heat. Badlands’ unique Heatwave technology is a ceramic lining that combats this by storing and reflecting your body’s own heat back onto you. By giving you a few crucial extra degrees of warmth, Heatwave can help you stay in the field longer.

    • Waterproof Zippers and Seams

    Every time you stitch a piece of clothing, you're creating tiny holes in the fabric, and water can find it's way in through the tiniest holes. So we seal the seams and zippers on select Badlands gear with waterproof tape, to prevent moisture from getting where it's unwelcome.
