The jacket is unisex, it has a formal look and turns into a functional backpack. It has a hidden hood and a strap around the waist which fits female figure. It also has an A4 pocket for documents in the back.

The jacket can also by turned into a backpack with adjustable straps which can carry important documents. The project is made out of Gore-Tex fabric and is therefore completely waterproof.
