40 years of Half Moon: Our History to Your Present

Half Moon Travel Clothing was conjured in 1982 by two partners. One was a traveler who created a poncho from a wool blanket for protection from the elements. The other had a mind for business, and the vision for a sustainable, quality-driven outerwear shopping experience for Renaissance Faire goers, LARPers, and fantasy travelers alike. We gained notoriety on the Renaissance Faire circuit and traveled across the country for years.

Today, the operation is still in the family and our products can be found at the annual New York and Maryland Renaissance Festivals and online, with seasonal collections and the option to custom order from our line of capes, cloaks, coats, and cowl hoods.

What Makes Half Moon Different?

We’ve been making high quality wool cloaks and coats for a long time. We know that when you shop for your outerwear (be it fantasy garb or your new winter coat), you’re looking for durability with a unique-to-you look and design. When you custom order a Half Moon cape, cloak, coat, or cowl, you will receive an expertly crafted garment that is practical, beautiful and made to last. We’ll repair it for life and take it back from you when you’re done with it to be recycled or repurposed.

Our uniquely designed garments can be used for special occasions like weddings, historical reenactment, cosplay, stage performances, renaissance faires, live action role playing, dungeons and dragons garb, or even everyday outerwear – just to name a few. With a wide variety of custom design options, you will be wearing a unique, durable piece of art. We promise that people will ask where you got it.

We use high quality materials like wool,  linen and leather so that you’ll be warm and protected from harsh elements and unpredictable weather. With our garments, you’ll never have to worry about getting caught in the cold and rain or harsh sun with inferior material on your back.

At Half Moon, we strive to create outdoor travel clothing that will last you a lifetime.


Our vision of beautifully crafted, made-to-last outerwear goes hand in hand with our mission of sustainability and local artisanship. At Half Moon, we are striving toward zero waste from both a manufacturing and customer use perspective. We believe that when you buy better, you buy less.

Every garment is designed, cut, and sewn in Colorado. We source our materials as locally and sustainably as possible. We take pride in giving you the kind of durability you can expect from products made in America. Employing local, mountain-lifestyle powered manufacturing practices gives us more control over the quality of our products, and provides our customers with the peace of mind that their custom outerwear is made consciously and ethically.

Every Half Moon Garment Sold Plants a Tree!

We take action in the sustainable fashion movement by partnering with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization dedicated to global reforestation efforts. For every garment you purchase from Half Moon, one tree is planted. Based in the mountains of Colorado, we understand the importance of thriving forests and the challenges presented by beetle kill and wildfires. We focus our efforts toward the Rocky Mountain region as often as possible. We are proud to say that since we started this initiative, we have planted over 2,000 trees.

Join our reforestation journey and use your purchase power for good.
