New Rain Kilt Just Arrived, I am PACKED!!!

#1
A new rain kilt was shown here a few weeks ago and I ordered one immediately from China. It is light, (nylon, though I first thought it to be cuben), with a velcro belt allowing for a proper fit. It falls below the knees which is just perfect. Did I say it is very light? It is replacing a pair of rain suit pants that weigh close to 1/2 lb. No wonder I replaced them, yes?

I watched them all. I’ll be walking around the same time next year, maybe 1-2 weeks later than him, so I soaked these up, every last one of them.

A fellow Canadian pilgrim lent me hers for my recent EL NORTE and I used it probably 28 of 38 days out on the camino.....it rained A LOT.....so light, so easy to whip on and off, kept me dry except for one day of malfunction (my fault) and never got hot. Somedays I wore it when the wind was cold on my thighs but not raining. I will definitely get one for myself for next years Camino. Buen Camino

16 days for me too! (17 if you count the rest of today which we won’t) :) That rain shirt looks great, can I ask how long it took to arrive though? Thanks! :)

There are a number of sources from which you can buy a rain skirt which would take less delivery time, if that is an issue. Where do you live?
