"We designed the Caper to incorporate the stylish silhouette of a high-end cape with the lightweight convenience and affordability of a poncho."
LOS ANGELES, CA, January 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- TRAY 6, known for their high-quality umbrellas, is celebrating their 10th anniversary with the launch of the Caper, the next step in travel-friendly raingear. Light enough to always carry with you and chic enough to make sure you always will, the Caper is a rain cape redesigned to keep you dry and looking fabulous at a moment's notice, all for the price of a poncho.
"We researched every type of raingear available, from the designer trench to the stadium poncho, seeking the best combination of features," says Peggy Hsu, founder of TRAY 6. "Using what we learned, we designed the Caper to incorporate the stylish silhouette of a high-end cape with the lightweight convenience and affordability of a poncho."
Weighing less than 6 ounces, the Caper is light and compact, folding into a flat 7x7 inch pouch that doubles as a zipper pocket for storing keys or phone. It's the perfect size and weight to carry in your purse to ensure you'll be prepared for those unexpected showers. Made of 1200 mm waterproof polyester, the Caper features four snap buttons down the front and a drawstring hood with a waterproof heat-sealed seam, along with snap buttons that close around the wrist to prevent inversion from strong winds. With a flattering shape, it comes in one size fits most. At $24, the Caper is available for half the price of your average raincoat, but with twice the features.
Specifications aside, this product is more than just functional. As its name implies, the Caper was designed to inspire rainy day adventures. Available in four different color/print combinations, each Caper embraces a different facet of a rainy day, be it romance, intrigue, mischief, or unexpected delight.
About TRAY 6
Since 2004, TRAY 6 has been making functional products fashionable and fun. Inspired by the beauty of rainy days and the scarcity of fashionable, high quality raingear, the company started out by giving the umbrella a long overdue makeover, with unique modern prints and colors. While continuing to grow their collection of over 100 umbrella styles and colors, TRAY 6 added rain-resistant carryalls, crossbodies, and clutches. Their products are sold at www.tray6.com and in boutiques and museum gift shops throughout the U.S. But to capture the adventurous spirit of their Capers, TRAY 6 has just launched an all-new site, www.raincaper.com.
