So you love adventures? You are an ardent trekker and camper. Here is good news for you. A backpack bed has just been launched for all you adventure seekers that can be converted into a mattress. The backpack bed is a very lightweight and fire-proof for use. It is also weatherproof and of a very fast drying material.
The backpack is unique in its design as it can be rolled out in a mild dew-repelling tent-mattress. Yes, you can use it for sleeping anywhere and everywhere. Ideal for camping, yes!
Not only for adventure, but these backpacks are been handed out to homeless people as charity. In fact it is a good investment to provide NGO’s and service centers with these backpacks cum mattresses to pass it on to the needy. Swags for Homeless, an Aussie charity, is in the process of passing out these beds to the homeless so as to facilitate as many as 15,000 which sleep on the streets of Australia. There, the term swag means an outdoor portable sleeping unit and in traditionally Australian swag is made of heavy canvas in comparison to the new Backpack Bed that is very light to carry ( as it is made up of a strong fabric, ultra light called UltTrex Lite).
The backpack cum mattress is very durable and uses tough mosquito fine mesh that is taped with seals to prevent any sort of leakage. The mattress also has a pocket that can be locked to keep any safes. You are provided with a brass key lock for the same.
The innovation has won the German 2011 Red Dot “Best of the Best” award, being awarded so as it is a big deal in the product design world. You can view the images to see how efficiently it rolls up as both the mattress and the backpack. The gif shows how the bed rolls into a backpack.
