A Waterproof Backpack Bed

September 3, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“While most innovators across the planet are busy designing the next best-seller, Aussie Tony Clark is hard at work creating something that is a lot more humane.

Created for his charity Swags for Homeless, the Backpack Bed is an innovative new integrated tent-mattress system that is helping the 15,000-strong homeless population of Australia fight the desolation of not having a roof over their heads.

The weather-proof, mildew-proof, fire-resistant and lightweight Backpack Bed is constructed out of UltTrex Lite fabric that is wrapped around an insulated 6’ 2” Super long EVA foam mattress with an extendable floor covering protecting the users from cold and wet bare pavements and soil.

The ready-to-assemble gear also features an all-weather cover that can be tied up like a tent to provide an outdoor shelter from rain and sun.

The swag requires no poles to be set up and can be easy assembled anywhere making it the perfect temporary sleeping space for people who have lost their homes and have no means to put themselves up in better accommodations.”
