The All-New JakPak™ For 2010

All new JakPak 4 2010: World’s 1st all-in-one H20proof jacket, sleeping bag & tent redesigned 4 outdoor versatility

LYNNWOOD, WA – In 2009, Active Engineering LLC introduced the JakPak™, the world’s first all-in-one waterproof jacket, tent and sleeping bag. Created by Active Engineering to provide safety and comfort in an unpredictable world, the first rendition of the JakPak is perfect for emergency preparedness and for those situations when limited breathability is better.

New for 2010, the concept of the JakPak remains, but the details are all-new, and developed specifically with the outdoors and high-output activity in mind. Incorporating important design factors, the new design works better as a stand alone jacket with breathable hardshell fabric on the front of the jacket and sleeping bag, pit zips and fully detachable sleeping bag and tent, integrated collar with hood and more, the all-new Jakpak is perfect for everyone from the emergency aid worker to the light and fast hiker/camper, to soccer moms and sports fans at open stadiums and fields.

When all the pieces are together, the new JakPak can replace your old bivouac set up, weighing the same or less, and certainly costing less than buying your structured bivy and jacket separately. And, you can sit up and drink coffee in it! Try that in a regular bivy.

“JakPak was born out of a desire to provide shelter for those who need it most, but our audience reaches well beyond disaster victims and homeless.” said Terry Jensen, inventor and co-owner of Active Engineering, parent company of JakPak. “We wanted to address the needs of the outdoor and sports enthusiasts and provide a truly versatile product that can be used by choice, but is ready for you when you need it most.” Jensen continued.

• Integrated waterproof jacket, tent and sleeping bag

JakPak jacket and bivy shelter

We were skeptical the first time we saw the JakPak, which is a hardshell jacket that transforms into a bivy shelter. Primarily, we struggled to envision scenarios when we’d need such a thing. The idea behind the JakPak is that you can venture out on a stormy day without a more
