OVERVIEW

The particular Telescopic Raincoat contains a set of internal drawstrings in which allow a user to furl the actual coat in about itself to make a smaller, compact folded form. Pulling the drawstring near the raincoat’s neckline turns it inside out thus it will not necessarily wet one’s other belongings when placed in one’s bag. Unfurling your coat requires merely the actual wearer to shake the idea out.

DESIGN CONCEPT
How to carry the wet raincoat easier?

We understand that users always hope to receive the raincoat sooner, so we spent extensive of time to brainstorm and research concurrently to find a solution. Later on, we saw that the principle of closing a rope storage bag (hold the rope and pull in a single step) could apply to our concept. 

DESIGN PROCESS

We did much research on the cordage distribute so that the cordage pulled to stretch in our hands is short and tidy enough. We calculate the distance between each center of a circle and cordage is within 10 cm in this design so that we can receive a raincoat quickly with one motion. We design to use a specific type of material to avoid breaking the raincoat by friction while pulling the cordage vigorously.

This design is embedded with ropes inside the coat which enable users to furl the coat into a smaller piece in a moment by pulling the rope near the neck then turn that part outside in And hake and open it when you need to use it against the rain.

Therefore, we created a video document to display the process that this raincoat could be received and launched quickly
