About HackedPack

HackedPack's Hammock Backpack is a simple but ingenious unification of two complimentary outdoor products. Invented by an American living in China, we've leveraged our proximity to manufacturers to make this combination available to the public at an unbeatable price. Now you'll never find yourself without a hammock, and you'll never have to worry about where to hang your pack while you relax and enjoy a personal chill-out spot anywhere a hammock can be hung.

Who is HackedPack?

nick-fredThe idea for the Hammock Backpack was conceived of by Nick Scroggs, a teacher, student, and inventor living in Nanjing, China. Together with Fred Bane (a Nanjing-based translator and media producer), Nick founded HackedPack in April of 2013.
