The Adaptapac is a modular hiking backpack, with water resistant and air release functionalities. The inner compartment bags eliminate the air inside to make them as compact as possible. We have created a comfortable design with a frame that transforms into a portable table/ bench. The backpack is targeted for mid-level leisure hikers for their various types of hikings, which includes a day hike, few days hike, rock climbing, snowshoeing, and skiing. The next step to this project is the refinement of prototypes through manufacturing a prototype that can be commercialized and receiving user feedbacks.
