What’s a KoolKape and how do I get one?
KoolKapes were designed for wheelchair users who need a water resistant garment that protects not only them, but their front driving controls and the back parcel basket, dry from the elements. It’s also got a fleece liner that can be worn separately or with the KoolKape making it a 3-season garment.
It’s made by Koolway Sports, an innovative Canadian manufacturer based in Whitby, ON that offers a line of outerwear tailored to the needs of users of wheelchairs. Their aim is to provide products that are warm, accessible, fashionable and comfortable, and makes dressing for the outdoors an easy task rather than an ordeal.

Permobil Canada is proudly supporting this wonderful company by sharing their KoolKape with our clients. We’ve bought over 100 of them to give away! So for every F5 Corpus VS power chair purchased in Canada this year, we will be giving you a Permobil Royal Blue KoolKape. Here’s the video with our big announcement!
In 2018, we also hosted a monthly draw to pick a winner from one of our followers on Facebook.
In the summer of 2017, Julien drove his F5 over 1,200 km across Quebec and he wore his KoolKape to protect him from the wind and rain he faced daily. It was the ultimate road test for our F5 and KoolKape! Learn more about his journey here.
