Cleverhood, High-Performance Rain Capes

View all 11 Photos

Cleverhood is a clever name for a small, Providence-based apparel company committed to delivering outstanding products based on the premise that high quality, aesthetics, and ethics are not mutually exclusive. Their line of clever hoods (aka. rain capes) utilizes high performance materials (locally sourced whenever possible) and the ‘hoods are crafted with an acute awareness of how best to deflect rain away from the body while allowing maximum maneuverability for the non-auto-dependent wearer. Designed to promote activities like bicycling, the cape has reflective strips to make you visible and a brim around the hood to protect your face from driving rain without blocking peripheral vision as you pedal. There’s even a zippered dry pouch for your digital accessories. The cape is long enough to cover your thighs while you ride; now all you need are a good pair of galoshes and fenders. Wear the ‘hood with pride – every part of this garment is designed and manufactured in New England, supporting good jobs in the regional economy. Available at Gessato.
