Do you, or do you know someone on the streets, need a Backpack Bed?

Midlas in partnership with Swags for Homeless, have a limited number of Backpack beds that can be provided to people who are currently living on the streets.

The Swags are lightweight but durable and fold into a backpack when not in use, making  it easy to carry around. Opened up they are large and roomy, with provision to be able to put in a foam pad for additional insulation and plenty of room to accommodate spare clothing.

They can be opened right out and tied off to a supporting pole or tree, which creates a swag with tent features, otherwise it can be used just as a traditional swag,

Some of the features include:

  • Wind proof
  • Mildew resistant
  • Fire retardant to 2 international standards
  • Environmentally friendly – no heavy metals
  • Ultra-strong oxford weave
  • Super-fast drying
  • Large front storage pocket – with Velcro closure
  • Secret internal lockable pocket
  • Behind head mosquito mesh:gravity drop behind head
  • All vents have water resistant zipped mesh covers
  • 9 kg in weight
