Waterproof poncho that turns into a dry handbag within seconds.

A wet raincoat is never pleasant to have around indoors, and it's not easy to hold or store. The Telescopic Raincoat addresses this inconvenience by creating a raincoat that easily turns into a bag. By pulling on the drawstring, the raincoat shakes off any excess water before folding inside out and converting into a small tote bag. With the dry side facing outwards, no wet puddles are created when you carry it around.

This clever idea was a winner of the 2011 red dot design concept in Singapore. It's great to see everyday products with dual-functions, such as the reusable bag that doubles as a safety helmet.
