Buy 1, Gift 1 WeatherHYDE
A tent that protects a family of five from extreme weather, provides privacy, and enables a single person, tool-less installation within 15 minutes without any need for anchoring. Extremely suitable for camping and recreational activities.
How buying one for yourself will help the homeless
As a non-profit design studio, we provide weatherHYDE at cost (with no profit margins) for the homeless, and offer weatherHYDE at a higher price for private use. 100% of the collected profits from those sold for recreation and private use will go back to the project, and will be utilized to produce more weatherHYDE tents for the homeless.
- Ship one to yourself, gift the other through billionBricks. Give a homeless family protection and a home. Beneficiary families are carefully selected by billionBricks' community partners working on the ground with the homeless in India. You will receive direct updates on the impact your gift will make!
- Ship both weatherHYDE tents to anywhere in the world. Treat yourself to one, and gift the other to someone whom who know in your immediate community that is homeless and in need. (Only one shipping address requested).
Inclusions for each WeatherHYDE:
- Base mat, thermal barrier, insulated covers, joints and pouch, bag for the tent, bag for the frame
We use PVC pipes for its frame, which could be found at any local hardware store and will reduce your costs if purchased locally. We will provide specifications for you to find the most suitable frame for your WeatherHYDE.
- Shipping will start in September 2017. A shipping fee will be added upon checkout.
- Each order/ quantity includes 2 WeatherHYDE tents.
The world's only reversible all season family tent designed to save the lives of the homeless and vulnerable living in extreme weather.
THE CHEAPEST HEAT SOURCE
The innovative use of a triple layered flysheet makes the weatherHYDE extremely suitable for cold climates. The reflective layer inside traps a family's body heat to keep them warm.
PROVIDES PRIVACY FOR WOMEN
Our triple layer skin blocks light and doen't cast embarassing shadows. The fully enclosed weatherHYDE provides a safe haven for women.
ADAPTS TO URBAN USE
The sturdy design allows weatherHYDE to be deployed in tough conditions. We added weight to the frame to eliminate need for anchoring. Reflective details and bright colors increase visibility and night safety.
