ConsUsual rain cape stuff - wind blowing and fashion
ProsPrice, fit, hood and tapes and colour
Not much used yet, but well made and good fit. Useful foldaway hood, sturdy material and good thumb loops and waist tie. Good sizing for 180 cm tall person and very visible colour. Bring on the rain!
Pro route cape

ConsNot for a windy day or if you exert yourself as it runs in condensation
ProsHighly visible
Unfortunately I had to return mine as I found it unsuitable, flaps around in wind and it runs in condensation, yes it is waterproof from the outside , but the cape acts like a large plastic bag and you end up wet from condensation caused by effort, disappointing, but NOT the fault of SJScycles who were helpful.

ConsA bit tight for tall people
ProsWell made and bright.
It appears well made and durable (time will tell) and it is surprisingly effective in the rain, although it may be less so if you don't have mudguards. The only caveat is the "one size" thing. As others have noted, it is fine if you are of average height but I would not recommend it to anyone much over six feet tall. Also, it covers handlebar mounted lights.
Exactly right ??

Consnone, yet.
Prosas above
I bought this for my Husband, after he had seen someone wearing one! He finds it must easier to use if caught in rain, than struggling to put on waterproof trousers and jacket! Quality item. Good price. Fast delivery.
Too Small
By Chris Camp

ConsToo small if you are over 6 ft
ProsGood quality material
Good quality construction but if, like me you are over 6ft tall I think it is too short. Probably fine if you are medium height and ride a sit up style roadster, but I find the forward position adopted on my touring bike causes it to ride up on my back (its too short to sit on and pin to the saddle) and consequently leaves you exposed at the sides. Disappointing and further evidence that there is no such thing as "one size fits all"

Tough material, full fitting built to last...I think it has a hood in the collar...not needed to use yet. You can see that this has been designed and refined by cyclists. Good value
A Practical Alternative To Jacket And Overtrousers

ConsHassle if it's windy
ProsComfortable, easy to carry, practical
Gore Text jackets are too short for me and I hate the clinging to legs of overtrousers. So as a commuter, this might be a bit retro looking, but it's ideal for keeping off the rain and not boiling in the bag. It's the second one I have nought after wearing out the previous one.

Can you upload a photo of someone wearing the poncho whilst on a bike?
08 Nov 2023
If you have a look on the Carradice website they do have several images of people wearing the poncho. SK 08/11/23
What is the length, front and rear?
06 Jun 2022
The lengths you give (107 front, 94 rear) differ from those on the Carradice website (97 front, 90 rear). Who's right?
Thanks for pointing this out, we have now corrected this.

Will the hood take a helmet ok?
10 Sep 2019
Thank you for your enquiry, unfortunately this is really difficult to answer with a guarantee as it will depend on the helmet being used & what size it is.
Kind Regards. 11/09/19
I have a Thorn Murcury cycle with straight bars?
26 Sep 2018
Do you know if this cape been designed for drops or straight bar?

Need to know its going to be wide enough, if you see what I mean.

Also, if i was to order one and it didn't have enough volume, can I return it?
Hi, it should be wide enough for straight bars. Thanks.
Do the loops go around your wrists, thumbs or the handlebar grips?
14 May 2018
There is a rear strap to go around your waist, and the front straps can go around the grips or your wrists - its kind of personal choice!

Does The Poncho Come With An Attached Hood?
17 Jun 2017
The Picture Implies So But The Detail Only Refers To A Full Zip-Up Collar.

This poncho does indeed come with an attached hood.

Is It Washable?
22 Jul 2015
Maybe a bit daft, but how easily washable is this?
Will the waterproof lining peel off in a washing machine?

The advice direct from Carradice is that Machine washing this item, would damage the waterproof coating and possibly damage the seams. They recommend using an item like a sponge for a light clean as and when it needs it.

Does It Have Wrist Straps And A Waist Strap ?
13 Sep 2014
How does it attach to stop it from billowing up in a gust of wind ?

Yes, it has both wrist and a waist strap to keep it In place.
