Of course if you opt for the raincape made for cod fishermen in Portugal sold by Rivendell, you won't be saving any money but you might look cool on the deck of your yacht with one.
actually as I understand the bike cape did not exist from Grundens until Grant Petersen and company
hired them to make it to their designs , exclusively FS by them..

the fabric and the way they are seam welded, like the at sea fishing foul weather gear was utilized.

to get the product rivbike sells .

I jumped on the initial sale , they have increased the sale price since.

But , I live in a commercial Fishing town , so the company reputation is known here.

Eat Crab, Wear Grundens ,T shirts, on the neighbors..
