F3 "Halftrack" Backpack
||The Halftrack pack, like its World War II
namesake, was inspired by necessity. The needs are fairly
straightforward: carry heavy stuff, and make the thing that does
it easy to use.
The halftrack vehicle-type was
developed because it could carry heavy stuff, like anti-aircraft guns,
and yet it was easy enough to drive that you could turn any knucklehead
with a driver's license loose with it.
Our Halftrack, we're proud to say, continues in
this tradition. It's well-laid out. Tough. PALS webbing all
over the place. Filled with easy access pockets. And,
combined with our patent-pending Ripcord Gun Carry System (sold
carry a heavy weapon aft of your shoulders, so you'll be more mobile.
But what will surprise you is that you can get the gun off of your back
while wearing the pack.
We do, however, depart from the old halftrack in one
essential way. Our pack is quiet, and made for comfort as
much as anything else, because we know what it's like to live out of a
Halftrack shown in our new UNICAM™
|The Halftrack pack is sister to the
sniper pack, and is built from the same pattern. It's a front-loader, with two
levels of varying-sized tuck-pockets lining its interior, PALS racks
inside and out, and a fold-down shelf that can be used to divide the
main compartment into upper and lower chambers. A plastic mesh
flap on the rear wall serves as a radio rack.
It will carry two 3-liter hydration kits, mounted in
side pockets, or two 2-liter bladders in sleeves inboard of the outer
pockets if you want to free the main side pockets for other gear.
Tunnel pockets on either side have a D-ring at the
top, which is useful for carrying skis, long poles, or other long
It features a longer waistbelt, with a 6 x 2 PALS matrix
on each side.
We are confident that you will
appreciate the quality and level of detail in this product.
Halftrack has our unique, hand-sewn support, padding, and ventilation
system. You'll need to try one on to find out why so many people
tell us that our packs are the most comfortable they've ever worn.
The pack has a plastic framesheet and internal aluminum
Cellular Stays, which work in
combination with the harness and padding to provide you with plenty of
support for carrying loads.
||The Halftrack includes a lightweight pull-out rain
cover, which stows in a pocket on the bottom of the main compartment.
It can be used to cover the pack, and will even go over a weapon that's
If you add our ARCG ButtBucket kit (sold separately), you can carry a rifle on the pack,
and get it off your back without removing the pack:
Our ButtBucket gun-carrier system, based
upon our patent-pending Ripcord Bowtether, offers you a new way to carry
a weapon aft of your shoulders, and to still be able to get it off of
your back without removing the pack.
Since you may ask us to compare this to our
Backscabbard systems, we'll do it for you here: We like the
Ripcord system for its simplicity, for its universality, and because
beneath it all we have a very nice conventional backpack, which we've
been wanting to make for some time now. The Ripcord is easy to
use, works well, and will be a godsend for those who used to think that
the only way to carry a gun was either in your hands or on a shoulder
sling. For hard-core applications, and for carrying heavier
weapons, we still prefer the Backscabbard (as found in our Phantom,
Gunslinger, and Skycrane packs), because it puts the weight of
the gun closer to your body. But the Ripcord's cool. It's a
simple tool that can be added to any PALS-racked pack (meaning all of
