The Bedpak story:

Great ideas are born of necessity, and the story of Bedpak begins with a need. I was traveling for a long weekend with children, when our flight was delayed for seven hours. Suddenly I was stuck with two tired boys– trying to keep track of our luggage and stay comfortable, in a crowded airport terminal. Later, when I started searching, I was sure there had to be a bag out there that would make travel easier. There wasn’t. Once I had the idea, I was determined to make a backpack that was streamlined, simple to use and functional. The Bedpak was born!

How it works: Bedpak is the first backpack that holds everything you need in 4 neat, organized compartments, and unfolds into a comfortable mat, when you need a place to sit or sleep. Toiletries fit in the first section, and there’s an easy access, foam-lined compartment designed specifically for your laptop. Both compartments provide easy access through security. The section for clothing has straps to hold everything neatly in place. Shoes are kept away in their own section, away from clean clothes. Padded adjustable straps make it a backpack, but can easily be tucked away for a more compact bag, which fits into tight overhead bins.

Stats:The Bedpak is 19”x 15” and expands up to 12” in width. When unfolded, the mat is 55” long and 14” wide. The computer compartment is 11”x17 ½”. This offers maximum packing space in a compact, easy to carry backpack, that can easily fit into the overhead bin. Currently Bedpak comes in sleek grey and black, with silver detailing. Later and we plan to offer more color choices.

Manufacturing:The Bedpak is made with attention to detail, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, out of high quality, durable materials MADE IN THE USA. Once the first order is made it should be ready in 10-12 weeks with the subsequent orders filling more quickly.  You can learn more about our manufacturer here:  http://www.phunnybags.com/

Check out the BedPak in action:

My friend Lara says, "For me, the BedPak is the perfect Diaper Bag!  It holds AND organizes all the toys, extra diapers, clothing, food, bottles, etc.that I need for an 8 month old.  And when I don't have a place to change her, I don't have to worry - because I've got a built in changing pad!"

Curious about how well it fits in the overhead bin...wonder no more, just this weekend the Yellow Prototype BedPak (same size and shape as the  Reward versions) took a ride in one of those bins.  FIT TO PERFECTION!
Fly Away!  No problem with fitting in those overhead bins.

Risks and challenges

I’m passionate and determined to see Bedpak succeed, and I’m thrilled to share that process with you all. The manufacturer is committed and ready to go, located in Washington state they are ready to make this product from high quality durable, MADE IN THE USA materials. My website is up, and I’m working on my business strategy with Northwest Innovation Resource Center (NWIRC) an organization that offers business support and mentorship to inventors and entrepreneurs. Now I need your support– let’s make it happen together!

For the business trip, the parent on the go, and the world traveler.
