Specs per manufacturer: Lightweight, packs small in the included nylon sack. It is waterproof coated nylon with heat sealed seams. Both front and back babywearing are possible. Unisex sizing fits over most soft constructed carriers and some framed backpacks. Dries fast.
Findings: Okay, so I’m not a huge fan of ponchos, but this one is pretty cool. It is quick to put on, made of a durable nylon–not at all like the cheapo ponchos you get at box stores. You can still wear your rain coat underneath for more protection and warmth and put the poncho over the baby and carrier to keep both nice and dry. I love the little rain hood for the baby–very cute. The unisex sizing means you only need one poncho for both mom and dad. Whoever is packing the babe, gets the poncho. Cool! Way better than sizing a coat that only one of you can wear. What if you wanted to switch carrying roles?? Unisex is the way to go with this item. If you live in a place where you get lots of wet, I would recommend this ingenious product.
