Angry at hood?
It does not hold up against the wind unless you tighten it which is not pleasant!
In the rain it sticks to my face, makes me sweat and does not protect my glasses well !
It hides the view on the sides and makes noise by rubbing my ears !
“And who uses a hood to protect themselves from the sun?”
An umbrella is not practical if it is windy or if you need both hands !
In the wind a hat or a cap flies away unless you tie it and it’s not pleasant!
In the sun a cap or a hat makes you sweat and does not protect your ears or neck well!
As you have understood, the observation is widely shared:
Current head protections are neither practical nor comfortable in all situations, nor suitable for all weather!
Thus, we looked for solutions. After several years of research & development, dozens of prototypes and hundreds of tests,
we have created a unique product in the world that revolutionizes weather protection for the head.
The solution: Overcap, a semi-rigid removable hood
SEMI-RIGID: HEAD FREE AND VENTILATED
Thanks to its thin frames, Overcap does not touch your head. It remains well ventilated and completely free to move!
Overcap is larger than a regular hood and less bulky than an umbrella.
Your head and neck are protected from the sun, wind, rain and snow!
