The Kammok Glider is a camping shelter with built-in rainwater retention and heat reflective technology. Made from a new fabric that can perform in all weather conditions, the portable shelter is easy to put up and holds strong.
The Glider’s shape and name is inspired by the Sugar Glider, a small marsupial that resembles a flying squirrel. The Sugar Glider’s wings include natural catenary curves, providing additional strength and structure. The shelter’s six catenary curves allow it to pitch taut with minimal effort while still providing multi-directional support for rain collection.
Fully adjustable suspension points along the curves create natural rain gutters. Adjustable draw cords and buckle suspensions allow the user to maximize coverage and water collection.
With water bottles placed at the base, this shelter collects rainwater for future drinking, cooking, cleaning or bathing. Water funnels featuring overflow grommets allow any excess water to escape when the bottles are full.
The Kammok Glider has already doubled its funding goal on Kickstarter, and you can get a Glider system and two FlexiPOD water bottles for a pledge of $175 or more. Check out the campaign video below:
