Every year there are a number of large
outdoor music concerts, which are
inevitably subjected to a variety of
inclement weather conditions.
Glastonbury in particular has a reputation
for turning into a mudfest, which must at
some level be a miserable experience for
the thousands of fans
standing around in
the pouring rain. Umbrellas are not really
a good option as they block the view of
those behind. Parkas and other
clothing are just not cool for the modern
"hoodie favouring" youth. What is needed
a garment that combines some of the
features of a tent, with the wearability,
style and comfort of a hoodie.
This is the rationale behind the
Robinhoodie. The conventional hood has
been replaced with a small tent that is
supported from within by fold away
flexing arms, and equiped with storm
flaps that can be pulled across the face

coast lines of Northern Europe against invasion during the
second world war.
