Inventor Mansells patent pending invention called the Waterproof Backpack with Integral Garment Hangers is a backpack that features an integral system for hanging clothing.
At one time, the common backpack was only used for camping trips to carry gear, food, and supplies into the wilderness. However, as its popularity grew, it became commonly seen carrying books, papers, and homework back and forth to school. Recently, it has entered into the business world as a functional and safe way to carry portable computers, other electronic business aids, and important papers. Its increase in popularity can be attributed to the fact that it facilitates the carrying of relatively heavy loads with ease since the shoulder straps, and perhaps even a waist strap, help to distribute the weight over ones entire body. This is in sharp contrast to the concentrated loads placed on arms and shoulders by conventional handles and straps. However, one area in which the use of the backpack has not seen service is with that of luggage. This is primarily due to the fact that it is difficult to store clothing inside where it will not become exceedingly wrinkled.
Familiar with such hassles, financial advisor and frequent traveler, Jonathan Mansell of Brandon, MS has developed a backpack that features an integral system for hanging clothing.
The Waterproof Backpack with Integral Garment Hangers, nicknamed the 1-Bag, is truly an all-in-one travel bag, perfect for the business and short-term traveler. The 1-Bag employs an innovative design allowing it to function as a backpack, a suitcase, a laptop case and a brief case in one, all while having waterproof properties. Various storage compartments provide for a typical backpack function, while the main compartment contains conventional-rod hangers for use as a suitcase/hanging bag. Moreover, the specially-designed hinged hangers enable maximized space. Furthermore, the design offers a convenient compartment for a laptop, laptop accessories, and paperwork. Due to its relatively small size, the 1-Bag can be carried onto airplanes, thus saving the traveler from having to check in a first or second bag at additional costs. The 1-Bag is a travel solution and will save the traveler time, money, worry, and hassle.
