Having not tried one myself, so far my favorite attribute of Nick Scroggs and Fred Bane's hammock-backpack combo, the HackedPack, is that if you go to the naptime buddy's Facebook page, you'll see that Linda Scroggs, who I can only presume is Nick Scroggs' mom, has Liked every single one of the hundreds of posts and photos available for public view. Now that's the kind of mama I'm talkin' about.

Intended for day hikers, HackedPacks house 9.8' nylon parachute hammocks, plus all of the accessories required to strand them from trees, poles, fence posts, or very still-standing cows for naps and quality chill time with Mother Nature. Hammocks have been tested to comfortably hold up to 350 pounds.

The packs they emerge from qualify as traditional hiking-style back luggage, with multiple pockets and a large main bag for non-hammock-related items. Hammocks will reside behind an externally accessible ventilation void with zippered side flaps so they don't hang out all haphazard and haggard-looking like Victoria Beckham heading home at 3 a.m. on a Sunday morning, or Kirsten Dunst at all times, on all days of the week.

HackedPacks seek Kickstarter funding through August 16, 2013.

November 2013 Update: HackedPacks exceeded their crowdfunding goal and is now available for direct purchase--follow the link below.
