The world’s first backpack with...

LayBakPak

LayBakPak is the world’s first Rucksack with a frame that converts into a full-size, comfortable camp bed/recliner. The bag is fully functional with or without the frame inserted.

The bag element comprises a 65 litre sack with a distinctive and unique ‘hourglass’ shape. Access to the bag interior is by way of two large, double zip and gusseted pockets on the front. The main bag volume can be divided into 2 separate chambers by a hinged floor at the mid section, held in place by a series of clips.

There are six other, smaller pockets: four on the sides which are unobtrusive, lying flat against the main bag; two smaller pockets are provided, one houses the rain cover and the other for storage of small items such as keys.

A series of compression straps allow the size of the bag to be adjusted to match the contents it is carrying.

The top of the bag comprises a flap that effectively holds the bag and the frame tightly together when the frame is inserted.

The harness provides comfort and support and is fully adjustable. The height of the bag on the harness can be adjusted according to the height of the wearer to ensure the load is effectively positioned on the hips. In addition to the two shoulder straps there is an adjustable waist belt (with a further small pocket) and a chest strap.

One of the distinctive features of the bag is that it is relatively tall and ‘shallow’ (meaning it does not extend far from the back). This, in combination with the aluminium frame, translates into a configuration that is able to support heavy loads that can be carried with comfort because they are held close to the carrier’s centre of gravity.
