We happily recommend businesses, products and people who impress us. We will tell you why too.

Please keep in mind that these are just a few. Do not hesitate to ask us for further information and recommendations based on your needs. If we don’t have the answers, we will point you in the direction of someone who does!

  • 2006 winner of the Swiss Design Competition for the 2006/07 collection. New head protection for all outdoor activities. Ribcap is a woollen cap with sewn-in protectors. It offers you all the advantages of a customary woollen cap or beanie and can at the same time protect you against bumps, bruises, grazes and concussion.
  • Personally, being totally honest, we are quick to recommend helmets. But if you won’t - or don’t want to - wear a helmet, a Ribcap is ideal. Warm, light-weight, breathable and shock absorbing. Ribcap inventors really saw a gap in the market. A fantastic product with great design and style. We stock Ribcap merchandise.
