Sudden Downpour? No Worries with the Raincoat-Ejecting Funnell Backpack
July 17th, 2014
Not everyone carries an umbrella or raincoat on them at all times, especially if the forecast is clear and the day started out bright and sunny. However, what most people carry with them is a backpack or bag of some sort, and that’s where the Funnell Backpack comes in.
At first glance, it looks like a typical backpack. In many ways, it is, with ample space in its main compartment to carry all your stuff. What sets it apart is its built-in raincoat, which is released like a parachute when you pull the two cable strings on the shoulder straps. The waterproof jacket is big enough to cover both you and your backpack, so you don’t have to worry about getting your stuff wet.
When you’re home or have reached your destination, just shake the water from the jacket and store it in a separate pocket on the bag, which has been designed with small holes on it to drain any excess water.
The Funnell Backpack is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $198(USD) will get you one of your very own.
