Gear: RainRap is light enough to pack, heavy enough to keep you dry


Sometimes a raincoat is too bulky to schlep; a plastic poncho too tacky. That may be just the time for a RainRap.

This softer, classier, water-repellent, polyester wrapping poncho has a double-sided button closure and a built-in hood. And it’s reversible, with a range of bright and/or muted color combinations, from black/gray to hot pink/orange, and a black/leopard print.

The RainRap drapes to about 26 inches long at the back. A longer version, the SpiritRap, is 35 inches long and comes in a variety of team color combinations for wet days at the stadium.


The fast-drying lightweight (8 ounces) cover-up is one-size-fits-all.

The 26-inch RainRap costs $60; 35-inch SpiritRap, $70.
