Innovation That Matters

Waterproof jacket, tent and sleeping bag in one

Work & Lifestyle

Consumers may be able to design their own sleeping bags, but it’s a safe bet that few would come up with a jacket, tent and sleeping bag in one. That, however, is just what Seattle-based JakPak has innovated, aimed primarily at outdoors and sports enthusiasts on the go. JakPak bills itself as the world’s first all-in-one waterproof jacket, sleeping bag and tent, with the goal of “providing safety and comfort in an unpredictable world.” The patented JakPak design combines a waterproof sleeping bag, minimally structured tent and insect netting into a comfortable jacket, creating an instant dry habitat that is ideal for outdoor sports enthusiasts, people living in areas prone to natural disaster and anyone else on the go outdoors. Made from 3.1 oz., urethane-coated ripstop nylon polyester body fabric, the JakPak includes a detachable tent that provides shelter over the head, neck and shoulders. Attached “no-see-um” netting deters small insects, while an integrated sleeping bag folds in and out of the jacket for quick and easy access. Due to be available later this spring in the U.S., the JakPak is priced at USD 249.99. Sports and outdoors retailers around the world: one to get in on early…? Spotted by: Murtaza Patel
