How can I be sure that the November Rain poncho fits me?
Check the sizing guide against your measurements. The November Rain poncho in Regular fits a medium build person and ample room for a backpack or an overcoat underneath. The Tall (available only in certain styles) generally fits someone who is 5.9" and taller. Please refer to our Size Chart
Our ponchos are slightly longer in the back to accommodate backpacks or to protect your backside when sitting down on a wet park bench or bleacher.
Do your ponchos have sleeves?
The November Rain rain poncho doesn't have sleeves as such, as not only can this be restrictive in sizing, but also it makes it harder to reach back inside the poncho to access a bag or a pocket for those important items such as wallet or keys. Let's face it, we don't want to be taking off our poncho in the pouring rain to get our car keys out!!
The November Rain rain poncho is buttoned at the wrist area. This gives the poncho closure at the wrist and the sleeve-like appearance and if raining the ability to reach inside the poncho to access essentials.
What is the lining made from?
The November Rain rain poncho is lined with a heavy duty natural rubber - although, it's not heavy! In fact it is very lightweight while being waterproof and windproof. Any additional lining added will not only add weight to also bulk when the poncho is being packed away for easy transportation - one of the main benefits of the November Rain rain poncho.
How do I fold it?
Number one rule - make sure the poncho is dry before storing! Like any fabric which is stored wet, mildew and bad smells can occur if the poncho is packed away when wet. Once dry, follow the instructions in this video and pack your November Rain rain poncho away for next time!
How do I care for my November Rain poncho?
Spot Clean or hand wash using mild soap and detergent and warm water. Air Dry. Although you can machine wash (gentle cycle), washing in a machine may break down the natural rubber backing and we do not recommend it.
Why are your ponchos eco-friendly?
Our ponchos are printed using certified non-toxic inks and printed with an eco-friendly water-less printing method. We do use virgin polyester as recycled polyester has non-stable polyester fibers that do not print as well as virgin polyester. As well, we believe that the foot-print made by recycling polyester is greater than the manufacturing of virgin polyester. Recycled polyester is made from recycled plastic bottles. What this means is, that bottles need to be collected, washed and cleaned, processed by a high energy manufacturing plant to create plastic pellets and then shipped across to China to be further manufactured into the polyester.
The cost alone for this process is huge, both from a financial and environmental aspect. We believe that using a reusable bottle in place of a plastic bottle is the answer to unwanted plastic bottles, not wasting valuable energy and natural resources to create recycled polyester.
As well, our ponchos are made to last. Cheap throwaway ponchos use as much energy to produce as our well-made quality ponchos that last a lifetime.
How much of my purchase goes towards your Giving Back projects?
We give 10% of our revenue to our Giving Back Projects. What this means is if you buy from a store (online or physical), the percentage paid towards our projects will come from the amount paid by the retailer to us (ie the wholesale price). If you purchased full price from our website, then 10% of this amount (less shipping) will be paid forward. If you purchase an item on sale, then the amount paid is the percentage of the sale amount, not the full price.
If your item is returned for any reason, then the percentage paid towards our Giving Back projects is returned - which is why we suggest gifting the poncho to someone who will use it, as opposed to returning it.
My poncho is crinkled when it comes out of the pouch - what can I do?
As with all items of clothing that are tightly squeezed into a small bag, your poncho may appear to have wrinkles in when you first take it out. This is due to the natural rubber backing. The good thing is, after a short period the warmth of your body heats the rubber backing and the creases diminish. Also after a few wears, the natural rubber backing softens and the wrinkles are not as apparent.
If you need to remove all wrinkles immediately you can steam the poncho
