EDMONDS, WA – Active Engineering LLC proudly introduces 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, JakPak is the only alternative personal shelter on the market designed for outdoors and sports enthusiasts, as well as emergency preparedness. 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. “JakPak was born out of a desire to provide shelter for those who need it most,” said Terry Jensen, inventor and co-owner of Active Engineering. “Our goal with JakPak is to perfect the alternative personal shelter for anyone who needs a reliable solution to exposure from the elements,” Jensen continued. “As our company grows, our hope is to be able to provide JakPaks to those who need them most, particularly the homeless.” JakPak features: • Integrated waterproof jacket, tent and sleeping bag • Lightweight all-season design • Urethane coated ripstop nylon or polyester • Integrated suspenders to help distribute weight evenly • 2 exterior storage pockets • Waterproof, zippered interior storage pocket • Attached insect netting • Quick, easy set-up • Tent is detachable • Deep side zipper on sleeping bag for easy access • Three colors: Hi-Viz Yellow, Royal Blue and Woodland Camo • Five sizes: Youth, S, M, L, XL • MSRP $299 The JakPak will be available beginning August 2009.
