Backpack Shelter

With homelessness becoming an ever increasing problem in our country, this product is aimed at providing a thermally insulating and waterproof shelter for those who find themselves in this unfortunate situation. In its backpack form, it provides an easily transportable storage space for possessions, while maintaining a slim profile. Its dynamic design then allows for it to be used as seating, quick rain cover, or form a raised base for an easily deployable shelter, allowing the user to retreat to a protective area that is truly theirs. Its entire form is designed to be as cost effective to produce as possible, through the use of recycled materials, while not compromising on its quality or effectiveness.
