Essential protection for big downpour and wind with a rucksack under.
- Multi-purpose shelter
Though the range is very huge, you must be carefull ordering among the offered sizes S to XL, I usually wear a XL size, there I ordered a M to fit me well.
There are 2 adjustable elastics drawcords at hood + back of the head, 1 at cuffs, waist (under a breast pocket), and down the cag.
It is wide enough to carry under a rucksack ,change your clothing ,use it also as a bivy sac when nowhere to sleep or a rain protection for kayak,etc; it is suggested not to move much because there is no air ducts for perspiration.
It would have been good if Wiggy's add a brimed peak to the hood to avoid raindrops in the face but the large space allow you also to wear a hat, a cap or a helmet.
It is made of strong 200 denier polyuretane coated Oxford nylon has taped seams
Exist in black,orange or army camouflage and is very light.
A must for backpacking
Item product #231
A full-length rain garment, the cagoule is sized to fit over everything, including your pack. It can even be used as a bivi shelter in an emergency. The fabric is a 200-denier Oxford nylon that is waterproofed with polyurethane, and all the seams are seam taped.
The hood has two draw cords, one around the face and the other across the back of the head. The latter draw cord reduces the overall size of the hood for a better fit. There is a pouch pocket in the chest area. There are two shock-cord drawcords, one at the waist and the other at the base of the garment. It is as close to the ultimate in rain protection that you can get. The garment also provides excellent protection when used on a boat.
