Does Your Backpack Have a Built-In Hammock?

When most people go camping, they sleep on the ground like a pleb. But if you have the HackedPack, you can post up for the night on a bed of air and nylon, thanks to the built-in hammock that erupts from its bottom like a carton of General Tsao's left out overnight.

The pack itself has about 20L of storage — enough for some light hiking — and a design with sturdy hip straps to keep weight off your shoulders. When you've hiked enough, you can pull out the hammock from its compartment and secure to a tree. With the included straps, it's a quick process.

Originally a Kickstarter project, HackedPack's creators were able to get some killer deals on this since, unlike most Americans making a product, they happened to be ex-pats living in China.
