Veronika Scott makes the coat bags out of synthetic quilting used in industrial clothing and stitches it to an outer shell of Tyvek, a water resistant, paper-thin, crinkly material used in mail envelopes and building insulation. Tyvek traps heat and with it the coat bag has been tested to keep people warm down to 17 degrees F.
The coat bag weighs only 1 pound and looks like an extra-large coat with a big hood. It costs $7 to $10 to produce. Veronika has plans to begin producing the coat bag With support from companies like Dupont and Acme Mills.
