Like modern-day nomads, travelers are known to doze off whenever and wherever they can -- so why not make sleep more comfortable with the Backseat Pack, a backpack that doubles as a chair!

Although it's not exactly a lounge chair, travelers generally prefer practicality. And one very practical problem for globe-trotters is dirty floors -- whether you're resting in an Indonesian airport, a Namibian forest or a Parisian alleyway, your bottom will get wet and dirty. Keen Springer, the German design company behind the Backseat Pack, have solved that problem by synthesizing a chair with a lightweight bag.

$120 is the asking price for this simple consumer solution -- perhaps somewhat costly, but then again, a good night (or day, depending on jet lag) of sleep is usually worth the price.
