Badlands Vault Hunting Storage Unit

Dakota 283

$ 699.99
Product Description

The Dakota 283 Badlands Vault is the ultimate heavy duty storage unit for hunters and photographers with its long drawers that provide complete and easy access to contents and thick foam padding that cushion and protect contents during transport. The unit is also deep enough to store fully scoped rifles so you can avoid the hassle of removing optics prior to storage.

The drawer interior, measuring 54.5 Dx 16.5 W x 10.75 H, can be closed and locked with the included keys via the secure cam latch on the front. The back of the unit contains a set of two wheels that allow for convenient mobility that allow you to simply lift from the drawer face and pull the unit like a dolly.

The Badlands Vault can also be secured to a vehicle bed using straps or other tiedowns via the slits along each side of the unit.  The entire unit is not only weatherproof, but is also tough and heavy duty. The drawer and case unit was engineered so two units stacked side by side could easily support the weight of a fully loaded ATV or UTV without compromising any of your gear.

Are you a hunter using dogs in the field? Add on the compatible Kennebec Kennel, molded from the same heavy duty polyethylene, which can easily be strapped down to the Vault with the rubber latches located along the sides. Position the Kennel towards the front for quick access or towards the back of the Vault so your pets can use the Vault as a step down. The Vault will fit most standard trucks, SUVs and utility vehicles but be sure to check your space requirements first. Protect your toys with the Dakota 283 Badlands Vault.
