RESPONSEPOD THE BEST SHELTER ON THIS PLANET

OUR STORY Advanced Shelter Systems grew out of a leisure and lifestyle requirement for festival goers around the globe and a desire to help those in need. We started with a simple concept. Buy a shelter, have fun and help others in need. For every 20 shelters sold we donate one to someone in need. As villages of SHIFTPODs were deployed at festivals worldwide, first responders and relief agencies took notice. This led to the development of the RESPONSEPOD, SHELTERPOD and CAMP-IN-A-CONTAINER. Designed in partnership with some of the largest users and providers of temporary
shelters in the world, our SHELTERPOD have been purpose-built to be the most rapidly deployable and robust shelter solutions for disaster response and recovery operations on this planet! We provide scalable shelter needs: From housing a single family to supporting thousands of responders, refugees or internally displaced persons, Advanced Shelter Systems has a solution. Production is in full swing and we are shipping orders now.
Get yours today and help a family in need tomorrow!

ADVANCED SHELTER SYSTEMS
Responder & Disaster Deployment SHELTERPOD: For those wishing to be better prepared for when disaster strikes, the SHELTERPOD is designed to provide a comfortable and secure shelter environment for you and your family during times of survival or simply enjoying the outdoors. Complete with a preparedness kit containing the necessary tools for surviving, the SHELTERPOD provides the best environment for you and your family to sleep comfortably.
SHELTERPOD preparedness Kit
RESPONSEPOD: Purposefully built to provide a rapidly deployable and highly mobile and multi-purpose SHELTER solution that is as tough as you are. This line has been designed with all-inclusive features to meet the specific mission sets of medical, fire, law enforcement personnel and relief agencies alike.
RESPONSEPOD commander: A force multiplier; expanding your shelter or workspace footprint to increase both capacity and capability. Designed with all the same features and durability as our other PODS with double the size. The Commander can serve as a stand-alone expanded mission shelter or can be connected to other PODS to increase work or bunk space.
SHIFTPODXL: When extreme heat is your foe, the SHIFTPOD has you covered! Designed to be the most energy—efficient shelter on this planet. Built to the same robust specifications as our other lines with the addition of extra thermal insulation and comfort features provides a more luxurious living environment.

SHIFTPODmini: Perfect to sleep 1 conformably and 3 cozy. It is also great to for storing ideas.
CAMP-IN-A-CONTAINER: A complete selfcontained, rapidly deployable and National Incident Management System (NIMS) Typed camp system ready to go in one package. Establish a fully functional camp within hours with few personnel, no specialized equipment and little to no training required.
Designed for Emergency Response
MISSIONS SETUP TIME Record setup of 22 seconds! Setup time of seconds to mere minutes with one person. No special tools and no training required. Establish a camp within hours. An entire camp can be set up in 5 hours with 6 people.
WIND-RESISTANT Due to its geometric design the PODS can stand up to sustained winds of more than 50 MPH! In a recent demonstration our shelters survived sustained winds of over 100 MPH. VIEW VIDEO CLIP HERE (ONLINE VERSION)
With a new synthetic down micro-fiber insulation our composite superfabrics reflect and retain heat better than ever and even dampen outside noise.
INSULATION Patented insulation, runs hot and cooled Our advanced proprietary fabric technology is comprised of a 6-layer super composite reflective fabric that will maintain a 5—20 degree variance from outside conditions. Stay warmer in the cold and cooler in the heat.
Scalable Connect our PODS using our patented tunnel system. Customize your footprint on the go to meet your sheltering needs. Our PODS provide a multi-mission capability ranging from individual PODS to “clusters” capable of housing hundreds or thousands. Responder-focused features Meticulously incorporated features have been added with first responder needs in mind. Replaceable floors permit sanitary triage or treatment and allow the POD to be placed directly over a casualty. A “bay door” accommodates stretchers or those with access or functional needs. Heat or cold a factor? Our RESPONSE PODs have built-in ports ready to receive heating and cooling ductwork.

built SPECIFICALLY for the SHIFTPOD, SHIFTPOD XL & RESPONSEPOD Please note: These units are metal and very durable. These are designed so they do not create a vacuum or pull the air out of the SHIFTPOD. Most store-bought AC units rob air from the upper circuit (the room) and blow it outside. This is not only inefficient it will also collapse most tents and hexeyurts. Nine out of 10 units we tested have this issue and need to be modified. This is what drove us to design these units.

SPONSOR veteran reintegration organization with Veterans and Civilians working together
Team Overland is a nonprofit organization based in Southern Oregon that guides outdoor adventures as an outlet for veterans to overcome challenges associated with service-related physical and mental health disabilities, and to facilitate veteran reintegration back into civilian society. On the Trail: Team Overland guides outdoor adventures and hosts campouts for veterans, veteran families, and kick ass civilian supporters. Team Overland is unique in that it is not exclusive to just those who served in the military. We want to have an impact on veteran reintegration and we believe that it is only possible by having an organization with veterans and civilians working together. At Team Overland, we value and lean on our non-military members. We noticed early on that
civilians were passionate about sharing the burden of service. We have found that our approach builds bonds between those who served and those who didn't, through the shared interests of outdoor adventure and teamwork on the trail. On the trail, we work as a team to overcome the obstacles encountered on the way to our destinations. Around camp we have a saying, “the fire facilitates,” meaning we don’t provide therapy or plan any set questions for guests. We light the fire and it facilitates conversation and forms connections. From the point when we meet up until the time we return home, guests have everything they need provided for them, including all meals catered and any camping gear needed. On the trip, guests have the option to ride with a Team Overland Trail Guide or bring their own truck as long as it meets our minimum safety standards ( determined based on trail difficulty).
how to wash your shiftpod 1. Remove your floor and wash it in a large washing machine or by hand with mild detergent and 2–5% vinegar/water solution. DO NOT MACHINE DRY! You will end up with a ball of plastic that does not bounce. LINE DRY ONLY. 2. Set up and anchor your SHIFTPOD. (We like to wash ours on the grass and dry on a tarp in our parking lot or on a patio). Clean it with warm soapy water. (Dr. Bronner's soap works great!) You can also mix in a 2–5% vinegar solution to get alkaline dust and dirt off of the SHIFTPOD. Make sure to clean the zipper too. Use a soft cloth to wash and wipe. Rinse with clean water. 3. Dry your SHIFTPOD completely. Use a fan to move the air and or a heater if it is not a hot day. Dry it twice as long as you think you should. Our fabric system is complex and has many layers. This needs to be considered when drying it out. 4. Spray and wipe down your SHIFTPOD with a silicone lubricant. This will bring the fabric back to a new look, protect it, and lubricate the zippers at the same time. 5. Re-read step 3: Dry, Dry, Dry your SHIFTPOD before packing it up for the winter.
how no to wash your shiftpod 1. Do not use Simple Green or other cleaners that may be too aggressive or abrasive for the coatings. Don't use hard bristled brushes or high-powered pressure washers. 2. Do not put it away wet! Like any other fabric, SHIFTPOD fabric can mildew! We do not ship them with mildew... so if you find mildew it is because you grew it! Mildew spores are everywhere and they take any chance they get to grow on anything moist. 3. . Do not dry your SHIFTPOD on a wet lawn and expect that it will dry completely. Green grass is wet. 4. Do not set up or drag your SHIFTPOD on concrete or asphalt driveways without a tarp or other protection underneath. While the bases are protected and easy to repair, continuous grinding can wear away the lower pole pockets. 5. Do not assume the wind will not be a problem while you are cleaning or drying your SHIFTPOD! The wind can come up without notice and take your SHIFTPOD away! Make sure you secure your SHIFTPOD while tending to it.
