JakPak Don’t be left in the Wet

[16/08/10] 

When it rains in Hong Kong, it pours like God is pouring the Gatorade bucket over the whole city. But there is very little you can do about it. You can live entirely underground, walking from one MTR mall to another and living on Café Coral.

You could call in sick with a severe case of Yellow Fever and hope your boss doesn’t realise the ANA flight to Osaka has been grounded by the weather (those poor stewardesses, wherever they will stay?) Or you could man up a la Les Shroud, and tackle Mother Nature by the ovaries.

JakPak has you sorted for all your rainy season activities.

Their all-in-one jacket protects you from the rain with its waterproof outer coating, can convert into a sleeping bag with a few cunning adjustments (we don’t mean tearing it up), and if you’re really stranded in the monsoon, it can even double as a tent.

The jacket uses a patent-pending design, and even includes mosquito netting and a range of designs for different seasons.

The jacket features three pockets, coil pit zips and even an iPod loop to help with ‘cording’. And when you’re on the move, parts of the jacket can even be used as a pack cover.

After all, we want the beer cold, not wet.

A jacket that’s a sleeping bag that’s a tent
