‘HackedPack’ Marries Backpack, Hammock In One Unique Product

If you’ve got your backpack, you’ve also got a place to nap. That’s the theory behind this unique product.

The HackedPack is a simple marriage of two outdoor products — a day pack and a hammock. The nylon hammock stuffs into a pouch behind the shoulder straps and remains attached to the pack when in use, making for quick setup and take-down.

The HackedPack was launched into existence in February with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised about $16,000.

The hammock-backpacks are now available for $199 on Amazon.com. There aren’t many left and it’s unclear when the next batch will be available.

Putting up the hammock is simply a matter of attaching the included staps to an immobile object. The pack then hangs from one end of the hammock.

The 3 meter (9.8 feet), nylon ‘parachute-hammock’ has been tested up to 350 pounds. We couldn’t find the dimensions of the hammock online, but it looks appropriate for day-hikes or maybe overnights given the fact that, with a hammock always in tow, you won’t need a tent.

Pray for clear skies!
