This is such a cool product and right in line for what runners need – especially on those long relays when it is necessary to change clothes multiple times. Say goodbye to awkwardly changing in the back of a van or in a gross port-a-potty. Shoot, if you have a long-standing HTC team, you can each pitch in just a few bucks (USE OUR DISCOUNT CODE TO SAVE EVEN MORE) and get one of these to use for year on end. That may be one of the best investments you could make.

Even if not for a relay team, getting one of these just for yourself will easily pay for itself over time. I have changed in the front seat of my car too many times to count, and it’s clearly not my favorite thing to do. This makes much more sense for me, and I’m guessing for many of you out there as well.


It seems to be relatively multi-functional as well. By that, I mean that, while it is ideal for changing in a car or van, it can also be attached to trees and other locations. Therefore, My Carbana could be useful for other outdoor pastimes, like  camping. At under two pounds, as well as being able to be folded down to a small size, it’s easy enough to add to a daypack or overnight backpack. In fact, I actually think this would be perfect to pack on a trip to the beach. I harken back to our recent trip to Maui and think this would be great to utilize as a changing station and be able to go straight from a bathing suit to dinner attire, without sweating up a storm in an overheated car or necessitating a trip back to the hotel to change.


On another, less clean note, this seems like it would also be good to use as cover for when nature calls in the woods. I’m not necessarily advocating for this, but I’m also not necessarily not advocating for it either. And if it proves necessary, wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about other people…

Here’s some information about My Carbana:

Developed by serial entrepreneur Steven Polisar, the Carbana was born out of a simple desire to spend more time enjoying outdoor activities.

As an avid surfer, cyclist, and recreational adventure seeker, he was tired of having to drive around in his gear or change in a public restroom and wanted a solution that would allow him to go from work to play (or play to work) with ease.  The solution he came up with is the Carbana Mobile Changing Station – a durable, lightweight (only 1.6 Lbs), and portable cabana for the car that turns into a private changing room in seconds.

It’s the perfect solution for everyone who enjoys life in the great outdoors and wants the freedom to go anywhere and change anywhere – surfers, bikers, hikers, runners, campers, photographers, and more.
