Excellent idea, good execution
This wrap works well as far as it goes and does everything it is advertised to do. However, it's about 12 inches too short of perfect. I assume there were too many complications to have different lengths on offer, but I'd have really preferred something longer.
Very Good Multi-Purpose Wrap
We purchased 2 of these wraps as we live in the Pacific Northwest, where it does rain and we do love the outdoors. We find rain pants to be a pain to put and take off (in addition to being too hot and difficult to carry). Rain wraps are so much easier to use. These are super light and small. It would be nice to have "pocket" on the wrap to stuff the wrap in when not in use.
During a recent vacation in China, I have used it as shoulder wrap for my mom whenever it was windy. She was very impressed with how much it blocked the wind for her and how light it was. Everyone who saw her, wanted to know what she was wearing on her shoulders :-)
The primary reason for 4 stars ... is that I wish it was little longer (2 inches) and wider (for more overlap) when wearing as a rain skirt.
