This is lovely. I am wearing it today for the first time. I love that is natural materials. I also love that the cape doesn't make contact with my armpits which should minimize how much cleaning it will need. I think it will work well for days when I'm just running between my car and work or when there might be mist or light rain, or a possibility of rain. I think you may prefer something else for days when you're out in heavy rain. My old NF raincoat was stinky from the chemicals on it and aging, I love that this smells fresh and natural, and should remain this way across it's lifetime.
