The Hanging Cocoon Emergency Outdoor Survival PodBy Rocky Thompson on September 12th, 2007
The Survival Cocoon looks like something that someone with no outdoor experience, background, or common sense might develop as their contribution to the outdoor sporting world. In a survival situation, youâ€™re supposed to hang it from a tree and then sit inside to await rescue. Never mind that hanging off the ground in a hammock wonâ€™t keep you warmâ€”how the hell are you supposed to get it into the tree? Not to mention that these picture-perfect trees are never around when you need to hang a food bag, itâ€™ll be impossible to find one while stumbling around with hypothermia. Also, the Cocoonâ€™s hunched-over sitting-in-a-sling position looks so uncomfortable that I would welcome death after waiting for five minutes.
