With a net weight of 3 kg (6.4lbs), the Backpack Bed is a portable, lightweight street sleeping solution that provides six functions in one:
- Ergonomic backpack with lockable key pocket and storage
- Bed with built-in mattress
- Sun & wind shelter
- 3 window tents
- Insect protection with loose full body mosquito mesh for hot humid nights
- Life-saving hypothermia blanket for cold nights
Intended for four seasons and simple to use without instructions, the ‘backpack’ is expandable which means bedding and belongings can be kept clean, dry and carried easily inside – with multiple storage zones for storage and access. The ergonomic backpack styling and shape ensures dignity for homeless so as not to appear like they are carrying their bedding on their back.
Making it easy to clean and dry was also of the utmost importance. It unzips ‘flat’ to allow dirt to be shaken out and can be wiped down clear. The new TrexSmart material was invented for this purpose and international standards for fire, safety & environmentally safe chemicals.
It is also waterproof, anti-mildew and water repellent.
