During the four days of the fair, meetings and ties were established with distributors, stores, brands, manufacturers … mission accomplished, the project was further consolidated!

The icing on the cake, the Overcap hood has been the subject of an live interview on TV8 Mont-Blanc!

Overcap hood provides incomparable comfort

With its fine frames inserted into its canvas, your head does not touch the textile and remains ventilated and free to move.

The Overcap hood is a unique protection to protect you from any type of weather: rain, wind, snow but also hot sun.

Removable, Overcap is easily attached to the straps of any type of backpack.

During the three years of development, the feedback from the many prototype testers helped optimize its design, ergonomics and aesthetics.

Extend your nature immersions!

Whether you are a walker or hiker on foot, on skis or on snowshoes, a photographer, passionate about ornithology or discoveries, the Overcap hood brings you incomparable comfort. It allows you to stay outside for a long time whatever the weather, in order to make the most of nature!

As soon as you need it, deploy it in a quick and simple gesture. It is quickly forgotten thanks to its lightness and it does not disturb your field of vision. In the deployed or folded position, your arm or shoulder movements are not hampered and your hands remain free: for sticks, camera, map, binoculars …

In the rain, glasses wearers particularly appreciate the retractable cap!

Your head and neck are well protected, rain or shine. Your head is ventilated thanks to the natural ventilation of the wide opening behind the neck and side nets.
