The Shield Pod comes in two sizes, adult in neutral gray trim and Mini-sized for littlest family members, pre-school to 10 years, in kid-approved royal blue or pink trim. Originally developed to help protect healthcare workers from possible exposure, it also caught the attention of regular folks and business owners so we modified the style to accommodate everyone. This lightweight protective barrier pops open in seconds for added peace of mind while you’re out and about, social distancing, or on the job. And while it's designed for inside use, it can be worn outside but isn’t weatherproof.
Adjustable backpack and waist straps keep the Pod in place. Clear panels give a 270° view of your surroundings. Spacious armholes and raised, zippered front offer full range of movement. The uses are endless—the classroom, public transportation, healthcare, work stations, family outings or celebrations, visits to grandparents, car pools, day care, and more.

I haven’t used it in public yet, but I feel safer in it. I wish you had different sizes, because I’m 5 ft tall and the adult size pod is really huge on me! Also it would be great if there was a way to fold it to a smaller, carryable size. Otherwise it seems good.
Good news! The Shield Pod does fold smaller. Please view the folding link below. https://utwpods.com/blogs/folding-videos/shieldpod
I originally purchased this item to attend the Baby Shower of my first Grandchikd. I am currently getting chemotherapy and needed protection from the public. I wore it when people started approaching me. I loved it. It gave me the security and privacy I needed. I can also go to the grocery store myself without the fear of catching covid or germs. I wish I had known about this a few months ago but better late than never. I give it the most shooting stars.
This helps protect me from people who question authority. Dr. Fauci knows Science! This helps keep you from getting Covid, and once Covid is gone forever I'll be the one laughing!
It gives me more confidence.
Wish it could still be a bit smaller.
