ISPO Awards 2023 winner
After hands-on tests by a panel of outdoor industry experts, here is what the jury of the prestigious ISPO Award had to say:
Excitement arises during the ISPO Awards when a seemingly inconspicuous product reveals its full versatility during testing. Exceptionally well thought-out, the Nomad Cape can also save space in a backpack due to its four-fold usability. Trail Hoppers has developed a product that corresponds to the current zeitgeist and the trend of lightweight equipment. An absolute recommendation for the next backpacking adventure.
1. Hammock mode
Whether you are traveling, at camp, or at the park, relaxing in a hammock is pure bliss, swinging gently above the ground: take a nap, read your favorite book, or have a beer with your friends...
The Nomad Cape includes a YKK zipper hiding the hood and keeping the hammock snug, so you can relax all day long.
The real magic behind the Nomad Cape is its innovative & ultralight suspension system. Transforming it into a comfortable hammock is super easy and only takes seconds !
The suspension system includes:
- 2x Daisy chains: each strap has 15 interwoven loops to adjust the hammock's height & tension — embedded directly into the Cape
- 2x Tree straps: wide webbing to protect trees from any damage
- 2x Trail Hoppers ultralight carabiners
2. Poncho mode
Whenever you head outside, there is always the risk of the weather turning bad. Keep yourself and your gear dry with a well designed rain poncho. The hood is carefully shaped with a semi-rigid cap to keep water away.
We added an elastic belt attached to the storage bag so that you can adjust the poncho to any height or backpack size. Along with the 6 button snaps on the sides, it also keeps the poncho from flapping in the wind.
3. Picnic blanket mode
A groundsheet is super practical for many situations: as a picnic blanket at lunchtime (or for a romantic dinner at sunset), for games at the park, cowboy camping under the stars, packing up your gear on wet grass in the morning, to create a sand-free space at the beach... you will never regret bringing it along.
4. Shelter mode
The Nomad Cape also makes for a good shelter that you can setup in many possible configurations:
create a nice shade when the sun is high in the sky
protect yourself and your gear against rain
build a wind barrier
adapt to any situation!
Inspired by the way dry bags close to remain watertight, we created a hood that you can roll and fasten in place. This provides a 100% waterproof protection, better than a storm-flap or a water-resistant zipper that often let some water trickle through.
Because the Nomad Cape is lightweight and compact, it is a no-brainer to always have it in your backpack.
All components of the Cape can fit easily in the storage bag:
- Nomad Cape
- Full webbing set: 2 tree straps & 2 daisy chains
- 2x Trail Hoppers carabiners
- 6x Trail Hoppers stakes, with their own bag
We realized outdoor enthusiasts often have a huge and ever growing gear closet, with equipment for every situation. At Trail Hoppers, we believe thought-out versatility is essential to enjoy your adventures. The 4-in-1 Nomad Cape is the perfect embodiment of this vision in the real world.
The Nomad Cape is sustainable from a design perspective: 4 products in 1. Today’s consumers do like a versatile option, saving money and time.
