Glider | Shelter & Rain Retention System

Remember the popular Kammock? (a light-weight camping hammock designed to comfortably sleep one person), now the same guys have launched a new product, the Glider - the first portable shelter with a fully integrated rainwater retention system. The design was inspired by the shape of the sugar glider flying squirrel, the six catenary curves form natural rain gutters, and at the base of the feet there are funnels enabling the attachment of water bottles to collect rainwater. It is made from a new ultralight/ultra-functional waterproof fabric that can perform in all-weather extremes. watch the video

The Glider is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
