Cleverhood, the Rhode Island Company with outerwear for livable cities, introduced the Electric Houndstooth rain cape. In a twist on the smart classic style, the new Cleverhood provides a dramatic illuminated grid when reflected by headlights. Inspired by the slow bike movement and urban sustainability efforts, the Cleverhood is a US-made garment of traditional style with modern performance features.

“The Electric Houndstooth Cleverhood makes a distinct impression, particularly on dark, rainy nights,” said Susan Mocarski, managing partner and founder of the Cleverhood company. “This rain cape is designed for active people looking for a combination of performance and a certain style. The reflective qualities of this houndstooth are stunning – it’s a look that’s smart and safe.”

In an early review, [Discerning Cyclist UK declared the Electric Houndstooth “snazzy with a capital snaz.” US-made, it is waterproof (10K rated) and seam-sealed with a Velcro trim tabs. Like the TF Green model, it is well tailored with a fitted hood and special features like magnetic arm closures and elastic thumb loops for bike commuters.

Cleverhood uses U.S. garment workers and high-quality features like rugged zippers, reflective materials and elastics, many from nearby suppliers. Designed for urban explorers and upright bikers, the ‘hood combines a unique style (which “freaked out” Vice Magazine) with reliable, high-performance standards.

Based in Providence, Cleverhood LLC, is a small business that produces a special brand of outerwear that reflects an affirmation of American ingenuity, local places and solid reliability.
