I was sent this gorgeous Rain Cape in Electric Houndstooth by Cleverhood to review. Initially used by cyclists this piece's design makes it ideal for use with many mobility aides. You can see in the photos that the cape covers the entire back of my chair and my arms when I'm walking into the gym. It's got tough zippers and magnetic arm closures so you won't get soaked and reflective thread so you're seen in those passing headlights. It also has an adjustable hood and velcro tabs to adjust the width and is made in the USA.

This is the coolest, most practical, least dorky-looking weather cape I've ever owned. Not only does it do exactly what it supposed to it makes you look good while you're trying to maneuver through a downpour. A lot of weather gear is either cumbersome or inadequate (or both) for people in wheelchairs. Cleverhood is the exception. It keeps you bone dry without restricting movement or impeding mobility aid navigation. It also folds up neatly and comes with a backpack-style bag to stow it in.

Cleverhood rain capes and jackets are investment pieces running from $89-$299. But it's the only rain gear you'll ever need. 

By the way, my gym wear today includes these Contour Crop Leggings by CRISSCROSS Intimates. I received these as well and I love the support and flexibility they offer while I'm working out. You can see them in action here.
