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.
Eberlestocks Halftrack, continues in this tradition. It's well-laid out. Tough. PALS webbing all over the place. Filled with easy access pockets. And, combined with their patent-pending Ripcord Gun Carry System, it'll 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.
The pack is quiet, and made for comfort as much as anything else, because we know what it's like to live out of a backpack.
The Halftrack pack is sister to the Phantom 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 equipment.
It features a longer waist belt, with a 6 x 2 PALS matrix on each side.
