Based in Providence, R.I., Cleverhood is a small, family-run business with a thing for livable cities. Our products are carefully crafted to ensure quality and reliability. They are not just saying that. Their capes are designed for active people (and their dogs too) who are looking for a special combination of style and performance. That means they need to be well made.


Cleverhood created the eponymous Cleverhood: a smart-looking, waterproof street cape with bike-ready features. We think it offers a special way for people to get out and experience the rain — rather than just getting wet. Like all of our apparel, it is designed, crafted and manufactured in the US, putting a few good people to work around here.

Cleverhood inspired by the slow bike movement and the simple, elegant way that the bike is affecting broad change in our cities. Fewer cars mean less traffic and pollution. Bikes and good walks bring people closer to their local surroundings. It means more open space, more interest in local shops, new expectations — and certainly a new sense of style with function.

Cleverhood Rain Capes were initially designed for commuter bicycle riding. However, all of their rain capes are functional for everyone, including individuals using wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, walking sticks, etc.
