Columbia upgraded the Half Track with Backdraft(TM), their latest back-panel ventilation technology featuring directional foam conduits that direct hot air out and cooler air in. Slip your laptop into the zip-closed computer compartment, which is reinforced with an EVA foam shock absorber-because we know that you can't always set your pack down as delicately as you'd like. Beefy buckled straps on the front hold a skateboard as easily as a jacket, and the rugged number-ten YKK zipper on the main compartment takes wear and tear in stride. An electronics pocket is lined with soft tricot to protect lenses and displays. Hauling a heavy load? The hip belt happily takes the weight off your shoulders-but it's also removable so it'll never be a nuisance. Reflective accents keep you visible during late-night capers.

Lock and load the Columbia Half Track III Backpack on Sunday nights for a week of work or school. Come Friday, ditch the laptop, books, and files, and load the pack up with a layer or two, plenty of food, and your fun tickets. That pile of stuff by your front door changes completely in nature every few days, but it never goes away.
