Urban Xplorer’s Xplorer HalfPack RT (“RT” as in “road trip”) is the first in Urban Xplorer’s “affordable luxury” line of travel bags and gear. In fact, it’s designed not just as a bag, but as multi-functional, customizable travel gear with a vintage American classic design.

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. It can be used as a backpack for school, laptop backpack, or for use as a business or travel bag.

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 boasts Urban Explorer’s REVO (Rapid – Expansion – Volume – Options) system, which lets you adjust the functionality of the gear by the integration of customization features and accessories. The bag can be physically expanded or contracted according to your needs, with additional storage space provided by the Seattle Stuff Sack customizable add-on pouch that attaches to the bottom or front side of the bags and other options. 

As mentioned, the HalfPack RT can function as a backpack with the backpack strap attached or as a briefcase by carrying it with the genuine leather wrapped handle.  It also functions as a messenger bag by storing the detachable backpack strap in the hideaway pouch and attaching the included long shoulder strap.

The HalfPack RT has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$198. For more info go to www.xplorerbrand.com .
