On a backpacking trip along the Salmonberry Trail, we (Lily and John) sat on I-beams playing cribbage. We awoke the next morning with sore backs and behinds with an all-day trek ahead of us back to our truck.
While trekking in the scorching hot sun, our conversation kept returning to how we couldn’t completely enjoy our trip, because we were so uncomfortable at camp. We decided to buy some sort of backpacking chair or mattress pad accessory that would allow us to be more relaxed and well-rested while backpacking.
When we started shopping, we discovered that there wasn’t a product that would solve our problems. Everything on the market either didn’t have cushion or back support or was going to break our bank. So we resolved to create our own solution.
Ten prototypes later, Trio was born, a backpacking mattress pad that also serves as a pillow and chair.
Our friends and family loved the product so much that we decided to obtain patent-pending status and share the Trio with the entire outdoors community. The Trio's too comfortable for us to keep it a secret.
We are excited to share the Trio with you so that you too can pack less and enjoy more!
We wanted to name our company something that represented that we loved. "Pac" represents our roots in the PNW- John is from Spokane and Lily is from Portland. And the "Back" is for backpacking, which is our favorite hobby.
