Inflate & Isolate / Vest

Inflate & Isolate
Inflate & Isolate

This vest is a new type of outdoor equipment to help the users from getting cold when outdoor, with the help of inflation.

The vest is inflated with the help of four hand pumps that are connected to the three
inflations areas; back, front and hood. When the air is inflated it creates a isolating layer between the body and the environment which makes the users keep their own body heat.

The pumps could easily be removed and the chest pocket is turnable to make it serve as a package when the vest is not in use. These functions together with the material is chosen to minimize size and weight for the users.
