Wearable Shelter Made With Tyvek
- It can be worn as a coat complete with a zipper, including large pockets for important items, such as passports and personal documents
- When laid out it forms a sleeping bag
- The insertion of lightweight kite-rods into specific seams transforms it into a temporary dwelling - a tent that can house up to 4 people
