Jakpak: an all-in-one waterproof jacket, sleeping bag and tent

Following our recent post about the inflatable sleeping coat, we have come across yet another great innovation – namely the Jakpak! The Jakpak is a waterproof jacket which has the capability to convert into a sleeping bag and a tent – the world’s first according to the developers.

So how does it work? When in the form of a jacket, a sleeping bag can be pulled down from the inside back of the jacket while a tent can be pulled out of a pocket located on the back of the jacket. Straps on the tent can be attached under the body to improve the stability. The tent even has mosquito netting.

The patent pending Jakpak is perfect for backpackers and travellers.
