November Rain Waterproof Poncho Review And Giveaway

by

There’s no bad weather just bad clothing! I wear sneakers or wellies, gilet with a hood and jeans from autumn to spring. My husband keeps making fun of me, how I became a “Surrey Mummy”.  Well, we’re not going to sport an evening gown to drop the kids off at school, are we? What I was actually missing is a proper rain coat. Now, that I have a tandem buggy to push, I can’t navigate it skill-fully with a single hand. Therefore, when it’s raining, I can’t hold an umbrella, and I can’t keep fidgeting with the never deep enough hoods. (What are they meant to be used for, really?)

Lucky me, November Rain just sent me a gorgeous waterproof poncho to review. Designed in Australia, these ponchos are just landed in the UK. I picked the Oriental Bird pattern, as it looked so pretty and colourful on the website.

My review 

I was pleasantly surprised: the pattern and the vivid colours are the same in real life. Second pleasant surprise: it fits and sits nicely, even though it’s one size for everyone. Tested it on a grey and rainy Monday morning: it also does its job well and is 100% waterproof. The hood is deep enough, and it’s equipped with a front pocket, which is great for the house keys and the phone, no need to carry a bag. All together it looks very durable and it doubles as a wind cheater. Another very clever idea of the makers, that the little carrier bag is made from the same waterproof material, so if you have to fold it away whilst it’s still damp, no problem.

These ponchos are printed using sublimation. This printing method uses very high heat to transfer the print to the fabric, which is an eco-friendly waterless method. 

The giving back project

November Rain pledges 10% of all revenue is donated each quarter to various water related projects. The first project is progressing in Northern Thailand (a hydrophonic vegetable growing system at a children’s rescue mission).
