The Urbanaut is the original rain cape. Innovatively designed in Rhode Island  with clever features like thumb loops, snappy magnetic arm holes,a brilliant fabric that is woven with 3m reflective threading and a terrific hood. The Urbanaut is our senior statesmen - smart, dapper and has a lot of experience getting people out and about in the rain.

Sustainably made for a sustainably minded lifestyle. We have designed smart-looking sustainably minded fabrics that are 100% recycled polyester, with a PFC-free durable water repellent (DWR).  

Designed for walking, cycling, traveling and commuting. Covers multi layers, your backpack, messenger bags...Fully reflective with 3M thread woven into the fabric creating a bright hi-vis grid that stands out on rainy days and nights. It’s all seam-sealed, and carefully crafted with our bluesign® partners.

Elastic thumb loops keep the poncho secure when bike riding. The adjustable hood optimizes peripheral vision and fits under a bike helmet. Handy arm holes have magnetic closures that snap shut nicely. Adjustable velcro tabs trim the cape in wind. Plus there’s an inner security loop for extra blustery days (optional belt sold separately). Adjustable from 26" circumference to 45" circumference.
