The colour is gorgeous. I wasn’t sure what to expect since some of the photos indicate a washed out orange, but it’s really bright. It’s a kind of ‘tent’ but that’s the point. It drapes nicely as the fabric is not that thick or stiff. I don’t know exactly how waterproof it is but trust it’ll work. It had a bit of a musty smell so I rinsed it and aired it, and the water shows through the fabric but doesn’t seep through. It’ll be interesting to see how it works in practice. I thought this kind of waxed cotton poncho could be a good idea since there’s nothing worse than being sweaty in the rain because of wearing plastic. I was quite seduced by the sense of tradition and quality conveyed by this company and as a non-native, I really like to touch base with the deeper elements of British culture and traditions, and support it. I think this piece of garment is reasonably priced. The poncho came with a little tag saying who made it and when. Very cute!
