Here’s a new camping/hiking product you may not have seen before: The JakPak. Although the name implies a jacket backpack, this thing is actually part jacket, part tent, and part sleeping bag. Waterproof and breathable fabric make this a super versatile 3 season jacket where the “sleeping bag” folds down and the “tent” comes out of a hidden rear pocket.
Of course with any design there are always tradeoffs (like tent poles in your back if you decide to lay down in your jacket) but hey, you’ve got a tent strapped to your back! Let’s just say the tent and sleeping bag could be good survival items to have in such a convenient package. Then again, who knows – ultralight backpacking may have just gotten even lighter!
