One inflatable sleeping coat to rule them all

The Inflatable Sleeping Coat by designer Lin Tsui-Wei is one hardworking, multipurpose piece of survival gear--it's a raincoat, sleeping coat, sleeping bag, and even mattress rolled into one.

This one ups the ante on all other sleeping bags with the ability to inflate. That's right, you get to float your coat, and it even rhymes. The Inflatable Sleeping Coat by designer Lin Tsui-Wei is one hardworking, multipurpose piece of survival gear--it's a raincoat, sleeping coat, sleeping bag, and even mattress rolled into one--that would have even Bear Grylls of "Man vs. Wild" heartily approving.

Quite amazingly, this looks lightweight and comfy enough to don all day as it stops just short of the knees, compared with the bulky Selky. Lin appears to have resolved the issue of feet protection against the elements with a detachable skirt that drops down to your twinkies, which even turns this into a small mattress. All it needs is internal air-conditioning to make camping outdoors bearable in the tropics!

The literature also stops just short, too, unfortunately. Only the designer is privy for now as to how this inflates. Hopefully, there's a portable air capsule attached that will automatically pump this up. Otherwise, there'll be lots of huffing and puffing into the next millennium.
