The HatPak is Every Day Carry. See all of the essential gear that can be carried inside the HatPak!
Many have commented that they don't want another bag to carry. Exactly! The HatPak is meant to actually replace a bag. Go through your bags and take out all the stuff that you never use. Go minimalist. Enjoy.
We would like to give an update on the latest news on the HatPak and the JetPaks line of products.
One of our Kickstarter backers for the HatPak wanted to use his case for his US Navy Service Dress Blues Uniform Cover and found that the original HatPak is a bit too small to fit. We are now developing a new version of the HatPak called the HatPak Military, and it will be made to fit the larger military covers and headdresses for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines.
We are also working on some new products for the JetPaks.net brand.
LunchPak - A compact, insulated hot/cold food carrier that includes spork and chopsticks in a special storage compartment, and a clip with adjustable straps for attaching to your suitcase. On the back there is a mesh bag for carrying a liquid container. Similar design and quality to the HatPak.
CablePak - Handy cable organizer for keeping earphone and charger cables organized in your suitcase.
GlassPak - Compact microfiber bag for protecting sunglasses and eyeglasses. The microfiber cloth can also be used to polish the lenses.
CoffeePak - A coffee cup carrier that attaches to any suitcase and swivels to prevent spills.
Watch for these new products coming soon to the JetPaks.net store.
Have you ever seen people walking around with their shoe laces getting loose or becoming untied? Or perhaps you suffer from this same frustrating problem? Do you think you have to double tie your shoelace knot to keep it from becoming undone?
You might be tying your shoelace knot incorrectly.
The shoelace knot, when properly tied, is an elegant and simple locking knot that will stay tied all day, even during running and sporting activities, yet can be easily untied with a gentle pull on the ends of the string. It’s called the square knot or reef knot.
The two knots might look the same, but they are very different.
The difference is between a balanced shoelace knot or and un-balanced “Granny Knot”. You can often tell if the knot is tied correctly by looking at the direction that the shoelaces end up. If they stay side to side you most likely have a balanced knot. If the laces are laying forward to back, you probably have a Granny Knot that will soon loosen and become untied.
Here is a video of the Granny Knot being tied:

It might take you a few minutes to break the old habit, but once you learn the correct way, you will save yourself lots of frustration, and you’ll save yourself lots of time because you won’t have to double tie your shoelaces!
