    • Only keeps the upper body dry.

      I purchased this because I commute to work on my bike everyday and I am tired of arriving drenched when it rains a lot, especially my legs.
      I thought this would be perfect: it's light, easy to carry and wear and improves cyclist visibility on the road. Waterproof abilities are good enough for 30min ride..
      However there is one major flaw: it keeps sliding up the legs when I cycle, so they get just as wet as before I made this purchase. Considering this was the main reason I bought this for I am very disappointed.
      I was thinking of sewing some velcro at the bottom and attach velcro on my legs (uner the knee) to keep it in place, but the material does not seem solid enough for it to be a long term solution.

      Another issue: the hood does not fit on top of a helmet. It does fit under though so that's okay but it's a real shame.

      Really there is no need to buy this product if it only covers the upper body when cycling. Your average raincoat will probably keep you dry longer. Get an overtrouser for the legs.

      Legs get wet, cannot wear on top of helmet
      Response of the brand
      Hello,
      Thank you for taking the time to give us such valuable feedback. I will make sure the designer receives it.
      Unfortunately, poncho hoods which cover the helmet are few and far between (In all brands) as the volume of the hood would need to be quite considerable to cover the helmet. This may be explained by the fact that many casual cyclists on the continent in urban areas (The Netherlands for example)  don't always wear helmets which is where the poncho market is most strong, Oddly enough sleeveless ponchos cover the legs better as the arms act as a frame. As this one has sleeves the effect is not quite as good.
      If you're not keen on the item and you want a refund, you mare more than welcome to return it to us.
      Regards

      I am not a cycler but I ride a moped/scooter on a 45 mile work commute. This handy bit of kit stores nicely out of the way and has proved to be excellent waterproofing when on the bike during heavy rain. The bright colour gives added safety in making me more visable. The price which was well under a tenner makes this arguably one of the best practical accessories for my Honda. Every moped user has to consider waterproofing and with the right trousers this product will keep what it covers dry. I am 5ft 8in and 92kilos and did not make any adjustments to Poncho.It is a bit tight around the wrists but I am wearing a uniform, my industry overcoat and waterproof trousers under this poncho.
      I recommend this product and would not hesitate to buy it again.
      Value for money
      One size fits all has limitations.
