Although advertised as 'kids', I ordered and selected 'adult' from drop-down menu 'adult' and that was shown on my order. Size that arrived was definitely 'kids', so maybe this ISN'T available in adult size. Luckily, I'm only 5' 4" (the kids' size says it fits up to 156cm/61.4" (5' 1.5") and the length is roughly to my knees (adult size would probably have come down to my ankles!) and sleeves come to the elbow...but that's good enough for me - I just want something to fling over my head and keep 'the worst off'. Being a smaller size, the hood is a close fit, which can be considered a positive as it doesn't obscure vision like some hoods (ie when you turn your head, the hood goes with it!) Haven't yet used it so can't attest to its waterproof capabilities but hopefully it will withstand a sudden shower.
Took it to walk the Milford Track and is was great. Covered me and my backpack and allowed more ventilation in the humid conditions. Kept me dry.
I got this for use in warmer and wetter conditions - generally in the summer and late spring/early autumn, for backpacking. More conventional "breathable" waterproofs result in getting too hot and sweaty in warmer wet weather. A poncho affords reasonable dryness for upper torso and pack and can be very easily "vented" to cool off. It's light and packs small. It's versatile and useful in a variety of conditions, but not bad stormy wet and windy or cold weather conditions IMHO. Good value from this company. Quality is quite good for the price.
My daughter survived 3 hours of ski school in the rain wearing this. Well worth it! Much cheaper than a storm jacket although not as stylish.
I purchased the cape to take to take with me to watch a Grand Prix, in an area well known for its wet climate. We has a downpour the first day and the cape kept me perfectly dry. The water just rolled off when I shook it and I was able to get the then dry product back into its bag easily. I would highly recommend this product. Great colour too!
Good quality and excellent service.Great job Decathlon
Léger dans le sac à dos et efficace. Facile à endosser rapidement, ce qui est utile en randonnée quand survient une averse.
Après 18 km sous une pluie battante et un sac à dos de 7kg, tout était sec ! Parfait !!!
Cette cape est très pratique à un prix mini !
Protège bien de la pluie, protège aussi le sac à dos mais par temps chaud, difficile à supporter.

"Rain-Cut Pant" overpants or waterproof leggings offer complete protection for the lower legs and provide comprehensive and highly effective protection against rain showers. Care products: spray or liquid water-repellent treatment for the washing machine. To restore the fabric's water-repellent properties and optimize performance throughout your garment's lifespan.
We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2,000 mm means the fabric can withstand the pressure exerted by a 2,000 mm column of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for 2 hours).
Technologies: this garment has been shower-tested using 60 liters of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance RET (test based on ISO 11092). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor, generated by physical activity, is able to evaporate and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
A fabric is water-repellent when it allows water to slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime (recommended after every 3 washes). All Quechua waterproof jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifecycle using various indicators. An overall rating from A to E is provided to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants and backpacks, etc.).

Always ensure that this protective, waterproof garment is completely dry before folding away in its storage pouch for long periods.
Wash at 86°F. Use liquid detergent; do not add fabric conditioner. Fasten zippers and hook and loop fasteners before washing. Refresh the water-repellent properties by applying an appropriate treatment after each wash. A complete range of products specially designed for the maintenance of waterproof and breathable fabric is available in all our Decathlon stores. These products will help you optimize your garment's performance throughout its lifespan.
