Rated 3 out of 5 by mjs1237 Lightweight
Bought this last year. Looked it up today to see the fabric, because I'm going to make one, maybe several for gifts. I agree that the price is WAY too high, but I bought it to have a stylish coverup for a trip to Alaska. I think I will modify it somewhat to address some of the negative issues that have been addressed by other buyers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sheba92766 Too expensive for what you get
To justify anywhere near the price the material would need to be of better quality & quantity, a snap or two to close into sleeves, if only to secure it closer to your body to keep from getting wet & add another button to the neck area. Offering it in a couple of sizes would be great, misses & plus, perhaps. The tall ladies could order the larger one so that it would hang far enough for them not to get wet & the added snaps under the arms would keep it secure. It doesn't have to have 10 different sizes. Some of the other reviews defended it by saying its a wrap, I don't know anyone who'd pay THAT much for a thin, flyway wrap. I think these are the same ones that were on Gromment sometime late 2014 early 2015. The same complaints were received on their reviews as well. I'd hoped those issues had been addressed. Wonderful idea. I'd buy & keep several if the changes were made & they lowered the price point by half.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dosiedoe Good idea--but...
This was too light. The slightest breeze blew it all over. Arm coverage was not sufficient. The idea is fine because I need a cape(rain poncho) to wear over other capes, sweats, or coat but this doesn't work. Sorry to leave a negative review, but this cost way too much money to just let it go without speaking out.

Totally failed the test. So disappointing as nice style.

The only thing I like about this is that the material is colorful and light weight. Otherwise IMO it is cheaply made (especially for the price!) and offers little or no protection from the rain. The front is more like a scarf. A good idea, just needs better execution. Returning for refund. :O(
Rated 2 out of 5 by AintMissBehavin ONE SIZE FITS VERY FEW NOT MOST
Living in the Seattle area I'm always up for any rain gear besides plastic, this actually does that. I like the fabric and if it repels a down pour I'm all for it, but make sizes instead of a medium trying to pass as a fix for all. I'm a size large to Xlarge, 5'6" woman and there is no way I could hug a purse under this let alone the sides of my body and arms, it fit like a collar instead of a poncho. The other reason I purchased this is to support someone with a good idea. The only thing is, the product was skimped on when at this price point it could have been more generous. Make it in sizes like XS S M L XL etc.. maybe tabs on the sides in case of wind. This is high stylin' for rain gear, just needs tweaking. Sorry, I'm returning this because one size does not fit most in this case.
Nice to have options instead of the age old, ugly plastic people have to throw on.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LaraB love x2 people
Bought for my elderly mom in florida (and for me in Connecticut ) we both love. She likes because it is lightweight for floida. It is meant for when u get caught and its raining. It is not long like the plastic trashbag disney cape. But not meant to be. Perfect to keeep in car or purse. Would make a good gift too
Rated 3 out of 5 by gone fishing I like it
I got the camel and gray and I do like it. I like the material and the styling. I ordered it to use when traveling, and to roll up in a tote bag if taking a longer day trip and it is good for that. I do agree with the other reviewers that it would be better if it was longer in the front but it does offer some protection from the rain as it is while still looking so much nicer than the typical plastic ponchos.
