Walden: Suspended-Sleep Jumpsuit
Independent exploration of nature can be an emotionally valuable pursuit. However, the issue of sleep can pose a serious barrier to extended solo expeditions. Walden– a structurally reinforced jumpsuit– proposes a light, efficient, and comfortable approach to sleep. The product functions as an outer-garment for day use, transitioning into a hanging bed when suspended between two trees. This efficient dual-purpose solution ultimately eliminates the need for outerwear, tents, hammocks, camping mats, and sleeping bags. In practice, this makes sleep a fluid part of the journey, allowing users to better explore and connect with nature– effectively disappearing into the wilderness.
