Probably the best thing a homeless person could find at GoodWill is the JakPak Tent Jacket.  Illustrated above, the JakPak is very similar to the inflatable jacket we saw last week.  With room enough to fit a mummy style sleeping bag for extra warmth this jacket will also be awesome for runaways and hitchhikers.

The tent and the sleeping bag are removable and the sleeping bag also acts as a pack cover.  The jacket will be available in black and green and will be retail ready around the second quarter of 2010.  The price is set at $250.  I wanna try one.


The patent pending JakPak design incorporates a waterproof sleeping bag, minimally-structured tent and insect netting into a comfortable jacket, creating an instant dry habitat that is ideal for outdoor sports enthusiasts, people living in areas prone to natural disaster, sports fans who will not be held back by a little rain, and anyone else in need of shelter.
