We have a friend (who shall remain nameless) who was on her way to an interview with a major Wall Street bank when she got caught in a sudden rainstorm. Since she was wearing her best Armani suit, she didn’t bring along her yellow slicker, and of course, she forgot her umbrella, too.
Our enterprising friend actually grabbed one of those large black garbage bags from a building attendant, and traipsed off to her appointment shrouded in black polyethylene!
Too bad our friend didn’t have a RainRap tucked neatly in her bag. If she had she would have been able to sashay to her appointment not only dry but looking very ladylike in her lightweight, waterproof wrap.
Stacy Struminger, who created the RainRap, could identify with our friend. A transplanted New Yorker, she moved to Richmond,Virginia, where the wet and humid climate called for something less than a full raincoat. “Many times of the year, a raincoat is simply too hot,” Struminger says. “And sometimes you just want to be hands free sans umbrella.”
Using a quick dry polyester fabric, Struminger and her partner, Rachel Teyssier, came up with four introductory styles of RainRaps in four color combinations. What’s more RainRaps fold up and can be easily stored in a handbag or suitcase.
We liked the pink and orange RainRap for our upcoming April shower season—actually we could have used this all along with such a mild winter.
