Urban Xplorer has announced the Urban Xplorer HalfPack RT line. The HalfPack RT (“RT” as in “road trip”) is the first in Urban Xplorer’s “affordable luxury” line of travel bags and gear.

Designed not just as a bag, but as multi-functional, customizable travel gear with a vintage American classic design, HalfPack RT can be used as a business and overnight bag for business trips and then transformed as casual travel gear for weekend road trips, according to Todd Fujiwara, president, Urban Xplorer.

The  HalfPack RT transitions from the formal to the informal with detachable backpack straps, adjustable shoulder straps and multiple pockets and compartments to hold laptops, tablets, phones, accessories, paperwork, clothing, shoes and more.

Available in designer colors — Brooklyn Bronze, Electric Burnt Orange, and Classic Black — it’s made of weatherproof and stain resistant NylonUX Ballistic Fabric 1680D, with customizable cotton/polyester straps, leather accents, steel hardware, multiple side pockets, with additional storage space from Seattle Stuff Sack and CaliCooler. 

The HalfPack RT has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$198. Through Dec. 16, HalfPack RT will be available at a discounted price of $124 via Urban Xplorer’s crowd funding promotion at http://tinyurl.com/m26m2om .
