A hammam with history

A hammam with history! Our SO DAM LOCAL filmmakers captured the old-time vibe of the Hammam Amsterdam beautifully and the owner tells us their story. #gezelligheid

Filmmakers: Aimilia Mouzaki & Bondo,

Raincapes yes/no?

We Amsterdammers cycle a lot. But it also rains a lot. A normal raincoat doesn’t really do the trick. Don’t you hate those wet patches on your thighs? And waterproof trousers are such a hassle to pull on and off. Perhaps a rain cape is the answer.

We tested three raincapes out for our viewers. And here’s what we found …

IMPORT > CLEVERHOOD CAPE

$249 | cleverhood.com

CLEVERHOOD

 

 

 

 

We tried out the Electric Gingham raincape, but there are lots of different designs. Plus points:

  • loads actually!
  • quick drying
  • easy thumb loops and magnetic arm holes
  • can tailor to your head size with the fitted hood
  • reflective grid
  • high quality finish.

Cleverhood is offering 15% off for Broadcast Amsterdam viewers. Ask for details. 

MID RANGE > VAUDE’S VALDIPINO PONCHO

€42 | vaude.com

 

 

 

 

The sensible choice. Good for:

  • sustainable materials
  • big front pocket
  • fitted hood
  • value for money
  • also available in the Netherlands from the Bever chain.

BUDGET > HEMA 

€2,50 | hema.nl

For when:

  • you are broke
  • you need a quick high street fix
  • you really don’t care how you look.

ALSO SPOTTED, RAINCAPES FOR SALE FROM:  

Praxis, Ikea, AGU.

+ BONCHO

Dutch bike company, VanMoof, have been promising their all-singing all-dancing rain cape, Boncho, for ages and it is now shipping. It’s what they call the “love-child of a pop-up tent and a rain poncho”. NB  For a good comparison of the Boncho and Cleverhood see here: https://jnyyz.wordpress.com/2016/08/25/raincape-comparison-boncho-cleverlite/ (now that’s the way to do a raincape test, btw!)

But tell us what you think? Raincapes YES/NO?

It’s called ‘Happy Families’. I think you know why.
