The
Problem

People struggle going out and enjoying the outdoors. Outdoor equipment like chairs, tables, blankets, etc. are expensive, easily breakable and uncomfortable. Also outdoor equipment is bulky and hardly compacts, even when it is "compacted."

The
Solution

Muvpak is the solution! Muvpak's goal is to offer the highest quality outdoor equipment bundled into backpacks. Our first paks will be designed for families and weekend explores who enjoy day trips to the beach or mountains.
