Product Details


The world's only reversible all season family tent designed to save the lives of the homeless and vulnerable living in extreme weather.


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.


Our triple layer skin blocks light and doen't cast embarassing shadows. The fully enclosed weatherHYDE provides a safe haven for women.


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.
