The traditional containers that people use to transport water put strain on the body due to the concentration of weight. They also alter the body’s centre of gravity, which can lead to falling accidents due to imbalance. Water Vest was designed to solve these problems.
This ‘wearable container’ overlaps the centres of gravity of the wearer’s body and the water. This helps the wearer maintain their balance, and reduces the tiredness that comes with carrying a weight on one side of the body. Furthermore, the wearer’s arms are kept free. Water Vest is made with thermoplastic polyurethane. It is easy to manufacture, can be folded for storage, and can be recycled at the end of its functional life.
