The Zipster cape is an eye-popping, all-over reflective, stowable rain cape. 

This garment is in the outlet because the edges of the garment are prone to a slight curling when wet. Once dry, the curling disappears. This is due to a fabric manufacturing error. When the fabric was being processed it was rolled too quickly causing tension. We tested the sample fabric, which apparently did not have this curling issue. 


It does not affect the waterproofness, breathability, performance or reflectivity.


It has all the dependability, strength and style of our other rain capes but a lot more brash and bold. It's light, bright and has a ton of personality. Designed to be seen, lightweight, self stowing and of course waterproof and breathable. It comes in four eye-popping colors and with an all-over hand drawn SEE ME reflective print.  It also has handy snaps that create "sleeves" but still has the utility of a poncho/cape covering all your gear. It has a large front pocket that the cape  stows away into. Strong elastic thumb loops and an interior back cinch keep the poncho secure when biking. The overall effect is great coverage, increased airflow while walking and riding.

We keep getting more and more sustainable as technology progresses. The fabric is constructed of 100% recycled polyester fibers. This durable two-layer ripstop fabric is waterproof (20K/20K) and breathable. There’s also a rugged TPU membrane and PFAS-free durable water repellent (DWR). The fabric is bluesign compliant. The production is all done in a WRAP certified facility making sure that not only is our product environmentally friendly but also socially sustainable.
