Discover this versatile line of chic hooded rain capes offering year-round comfort and sophisticated style, rain or shine. Reversible, packable, rainproof, windproof and lightweight, RainCaper rain ponchos for women and men are wardrobe and travel essentials.
Founded by mother-daughter duo Jan Hartman and Lindsay Hagerman, Pennsylvania-based RainCaper launched in 2016. Designer Jan ran a destination retail store where she and daughter Lindsay offered distinctive gifts and accessories for 24 years.
After retiring to spend more time with her children and grandchildren, Jan saw a need in the marketplace for something more versatile than a rain poncho and stylish enough to wear for business, travel and special occasions. While Jan had carried rain ponchos in her store, she’d never been wild about the design, materials or features. She sought to create a better solution that offered more than a women's rain coat and came up with a lightweight hooded and breathable rain cape that works, drizzle or downpour. Designed to flatter a range of sizes, the rainproof and windproof travel capes are reversible and ideal for travel. The line began with the Classic collection – solid colors and timeless prints designed to appeal to women of all ages. Each RainCaper Classic travel cape is designed by Jan and features a distinctive print or hue; both sides are completely rainproof so you can enjoy 2 looks in 1.
Rain or shine, a Classic RainCaper travel cape is the most versatile of wardrobe options - toss it on to fetch the newspaper, enjoy coffee on the deck or walk the dog on cool, misty mornings; wear it on your way to the gym to dress up athletic attire; chase away the chill in over air-conditioned restaurants and museums; wear it over your coat in a sudden downpour or as a raincoat during passing showers. Enjoy evening cocktails by the fire pit and watch the sun set in a Classic RainCaper - it’s windproof too. Going on a cruise or bus tour? Why pack a rain jacket women or a flimsy rain poncho when you can enhance your travel wardrobe with a cape that is rainproof, cute, lightweight and chic. A RainCaper is perfect for airplane travel – use the hood to protect yourself from freezing air vents and for privacy while you nap; it’s a breeze to remove as you pass through airport security yet it covers your designer bag, cell phone and travel essentials.
