A brand-new addition to the Mobex collection, the cutting-edge Mobex Float AR Backpack from Columbia Sportswear features a high-density perforated foam shoulder harness attached to a free-floating cargo area. The breathable, ergonomic harness moves with your body for full mobility, and the strap adjustment system gives the self-balancing cargo zone up to four inches of give. It' s a super-versatile setup that' s all about comfort and range of motion. The Mobex Float is built with the same ultra-light, flexible-rod frame construction that has made the Mobex name famous. A clamshell main zipper allows the main compartment to peel back to its base for complete visible access to everything inside, and interior contents are kept neatly in place by cargo netting dividers. A fully-wrapped hip belt sports fuel pockets on each side. The sleek, Omni-Shield®-armed fabrication deters moisture, grit, and grime, and a reflective logo application delivers safety in low-light conditions.

Bought this pack based on seeing it on display at the Portland Airport and am very happy with it. Nice balance between ultralight weight and durable functionality. Clamshell opening feature is actually a neat way to quickly access everything inside the pack. Interior compartment design could be a little better ( more easy access compartments would be great), but all in all it works well. Light enough for trail running and the unique suspension system handles running with a CamelBack bladder installed pretty well too. ( minimal slosh!) It's stylish enough to be used for work too, ipad fits nice!
Pros: Build quality, Performance, Cons: interior space management
