Cycling is one of the most fun ways to get around a city, but getting drenched in an unexpected downpour can put a damper on anyone’s day. Enter Funnell, a backpack with a waterproof jacket that ejects out to protect you and your electronics from the rain. Designed by Make IT Happen, this innovative two-in-one system eliminates the hassle of stopping to take your backpack off; the user simply pulls two strings and a jacket large enough to cover you and the backpack pops out. The stylish Funnell comes in two designs–one for casual use and the other for business–and is built from high-quality, water-repelling materials. While the Funnell isn’t currently available on the market just yet, you can help bring the backpack to production and score an early bird discount over on the Funnell Kickstarter.
