Is it a backpack? Is it a coat? Is it a tent?
No its a shelter suit!

I'm building a suit I can live in, a camp on my back. Like a one man band. Portable, self contained survival gear you don't need to take off to use.

Its an idea being built for the homeless. Most examples are non functioning fashion bits. The best example of what I'm thinking is picrelated and its grom star wars of all places. Which is ironic because spacesuits built for earth was the original inspiration.

What features would you want or suggest /out/? Thoughts, opinions.

Well I've collected a frame back pack, couple of stroller hoops, extra alluminum tubing, webbing, clips, water proof and wind stopping cloth. I have a heavy duty sewing machine, gromets, rivets, glues and tapes. I'm at the planning stage. Going to build it like a house. Wiring, insulation, air ducting and even some plumbing if bladderbags with straws count.
Solar panels on the back with a battery pack to charge doodads, run lights and fan for the ducts.

Pull some inspector gadget shit where you squat down and it springs out the top of your pack, flies open and closes down over your entire body.

That's already been done. Actually, that's been done centuries ago. I don't know the proper english term, but basically, medieval age wool coats are exactly what you're describing. 20th century military ponchos and tarps are similiar as well, as though they do not protect against cold, they stil serve as tents, raincoats and bags.
Also, they're dirt cheap like all surplus, which is why they're still popular with the homeless.

But I guess simply doing something that has been working fine for centuries won't get you as much internet fame as chimping out on "modern" gear.

Marketing towards homeless won't work out, they don't tend to have the money on hand to buy something as expensive as this is likely to be.

break it and you just fucked up your backpack, coat and tent. well done faggot. while I'm not etirely against multitools and integrated solutions, all in one more often is a shitty way to waste your money. one purpose gear, when it's doing it job well, is prefered.

Hey. OP here.
I can understand not liking this from a business POV. Im not marketing this. I have already shown my disappointment in the real world examples. They are art projects for liberal arts credit.

Im making something for personal use based on some of the core ideas so far presented. Its an excuse to post some pics, entertain anons and throw shit at the wall to see what sticks.

Funny thing about the homeless however. They are an untappable demographic with allmost 100% disposable income. The biz world knows this even if you dont. Its just a matter of getting between them and the liquor store on tbe 1st abd 15th. Still not my bag.

If I was going to tap the homeless I would armor plate a trailer of vending machines I could leave by camps. They do have change.

I used to use a oversized snow suit for camping before picretated hit the market big time. My camp mates thought it was weird till it was bump on the night/early morning piss time. A walking sleeping bag rocks! I want more.
>>
>>1292800
I like your suit but I like the big hoods on OPs pic
put those together and it would be sweet
also instead of stuffed footies it should have gortex socks sewn on so your boots can go over the feet of the outfit

final step
add 3d camo making it into a mobile duck/turkey/deer blind

Thats the plan. Mixed with a custom rig based on military style LBE system under the coat and inside the shell. The idea is access to all gear without removing anything or even setting it down. This is assisted with the core bulky items are incorporated into the outer garment (tent, tarp and bag). I spent a few years maintaining radio towers. I understand the importance of carrying what you need on you and not losing it.
Its also inspired from childhood as well. Tucking arms and legs into a giant sweater, poping my head into my own private cocoon. Speaking of cocoon, with the right kind of straps built in it could hang from a tree caterpillar style.

>100% disposable income
aka charity money

It's... an idea if you're making one for yourself but what advantage does this thing have over a good poncho, hat, and frame? I'm serious about the wind being a problem. If you're walking into a 25mph gust with rain it's going to get you soaked and make walking twice as hard. Aerodynamic and sealed is always better than a partial umbrella.

Big hoody. Big zipper. Big enough an held up enough for even a clear windscreen. Shit! I might throw on a wiper for lulz. Already planning on headlights, sat-nav and ac.

>>1292849
Or maybe a second hood layer that can pull down. Have it zip to the belt leaving access on the sides to covered and open chest area. Been looking through picrelated as inspiration as well.

Post pics? At least a better search term than "old english coat". Tarps are great and all but a poncho is a bit different than a wearable duck blind/bivy cloak.This is a personal project using examples for inspiration. Save your salt for the bleeding hearts.

"Artists create, geniuses steal" - Edison
Since this is not going to be a product all ideas are on the table to Frankenstein together. I like this for the hood design. Im thinking about a harder shell right above the shoulders with the extendable hood in front. The back a large open bag, adjustable with sinch straps. The outer frame hangs from the worn inner frame from pivots at about hip level. Clips inside up high connects both frames when walking and unclips letting you lean back into the pack when resting. The inside of the shell pack strapped with webbing, gear and pockets letting you reach like a walk in closet. Anything else gets a stuff sack on a lanyard. This way gear can be pulled out from inside or relocated to make room in bivy/tent mode to lay back in your own pack.

Take ideas where you can. Right? This guy inspired me to turn a fishing vest inside out and stitch it into a heavy coat. Not original but quite functional. Depending on how you open the coat, you got nothing or everything.
