leaves much to be desired
Lightweight- which is great, but I'd say the benefits stop there. I purchased 2 of these for my wife and I on our trip to Banff where it rained considerably. The skirts are too short for their intended purpose and we both felt we could have gotten the same if not better (and cheaper) results by tying a garbage bag around our waists.
I've only used the rain wrap once, but it was an all day rain hike through wet vegetation. I put the wrap on in a hurry and then belted my backpack over the waistband. If I'd been thinking coherently, I would have made sure that the overlap/opening was behind me rather than in front which allowed rain water to sneak in. And of course, I was too lazy to stop and rearrange everything. But for the extreme light weight and ease of use of this product, it now resides in the pocket of my rain jacket for future use. Other reviewers have mentioned the need for a closure of some sort lower on the wrap to keep it from flipping open. That would be a good improvement, but I think wearing it with the opening to the back would be the perfect option.
