A lot of homeless people don't have the opportunity to hide from the public and sleep calmly and protected from weather.
They avoid staying in homeless shelters, because they are afraid of thievery and violence.
"Shelter in a Bag" is a hybrid of a sleeping bag and a tent, made out of waterproof and breathable fabric. The inside of the bag is equipped with several pockets. The homeless can stuff personal belongins or random materials like cardboard and newspaper into the pockets.
Thus the homless people and their belongings are protected from weather and thievery. Rolled-up, the "Shelter in a Bag" is a bag for the homeless' property.
