“Before HalfPack RT, finding a quality made bag that was stylish, functional, customizable and yet affordable seemed impossible,” said Todd Fujiwara, President, Urban Xplorer.  “Backpacks are generally low quality with low functionality.  And typically if you desire a ‘quality’ made bag that is highly functional, you have to pay upwards of $300.  With HalfPack RT, we’ve created a luxury bag at an affordable sub $200 price point.”
