Wearable Tent is Both Cool and Stupid All at Once

In Texas, the weather can change at a moment’s notice. We tend to not change plans because of poor weather until the last second because it can be flooding one minute and sunny the next. I have been caught in the rain before unprepared, and if you are a hiker, this new wearable tent has surfaced that might catch your attention.

We don’t have many details on the thing, but really you don’t need any to get the idea what it does. It’s a poncho that you can wear with a hood to keep the rain off. If you need a place, to sit you can stake the thing down and it makes its own little tent. That is the cool part about the thing.

The stupid part comes in the execution. If you are wearing this to keep the rain off you and you decide to turn it into a tent, you will get all wet going outside to stake the thing down. I guess you have to wear another poncho to stay dry while you go out to stake it down. It also lacks a bottom so you get to sit on the wet ground.
