Trail Hoppers is a French company on a mission to make life better for all outdoor enthusiasts by creating products that are versatile, easy to use and lightweight.
Our first product is the Nomad Cape, a 3-in-1 hammock that easily transforms into a poncho or a tarp. Trail Hoppers was founded in 2023. We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in June which reached the funding goal in 24h.
The idea came during a round-the-world tour. Pierre had a rain poncho in his well-filled backpack, but couldn't stop picturing a hammock hung in the beautiful landscapes he visited. In South America, he finally decided to find and work with a seamstress and modify his poncho: the very first Nomad Cape was born.
