Summary

HackedPack’s Hammock Backpack is a combination hammock and backpack.

Pros

  • Very cool integrated hammock
  • Can use the hammock separately

Cons

  • Small space
  • Odd opening to get at stuff

HackedPack’s durable nylon backpacks include lots of pockets.

I've used this on a few light weekend outings. It's OK if you have a small sleeping bag you want to use with the hammock. If you strap on the outside it works. A 25L capacity. There a nice hip belt and the packed weighted down rides fine on your back. Nice huge parachute nylon hammocks are triple-stitched to hold up to 500 lbs, aluminum gate clips are rated to 20 kN weigh less than an ounce. 9' straps are long enough for the widest tree.

While the overall concept is great it works best if using for a weekend to move things around and attach to the outside. There is a built-in pack cover that is very cool and the hammock storage in the pack is genius.  

Sleeping in the hammock is perfect.

If they made this pack larger I think it would be far more useful for a serious weekend. For an ultralight backpacker, this may be perfect. 

The one thing I don't like is the access. I find myself digging through the pack to get stuff. There are some awesome storage pockets, however to get to them when the pack is full isn't easy.

Overall I'd recommend if going overnight and the weather can tolerate hammock sleeping. Other than that, you'll need a bigger pack. Keep in mind, you can always just grab the hammock and use that part.

Hey Tom, thanks for the review. Two thoughts always occur to me with integrated/combo gear: 1) does it work better than the two things alone, and 2) how much does it weigh?

pack with hammock weighs 4.75lbs. It works pretty cool place to store your pack and stows nice. Perfect for an ultralight backpack but need more space for a weekend pack.
