My mum got me one last year for Christmas. Needless to say I haven't used it - she thought it was a great idea. I don't fancy increasing my wind-resistance / sail power that much - I'm commuting here, not trying to get blown across under a car.

Never heard of them but I'm new to all this. First thing that came to mind was a cape that Superman would wear, which would look mighty interesting riding along public roads. Can't see the benefits myself.

I've got one in my work bag, use it if it rains on the way home, it slows me down a bit, slows me down a lot if theres a headwind, but keeps the worst of the rain off.

Back in the late 60s we used cycle capes and sou'westers for mountaineering because there wasn't anything else! Then someone called Peter Storm invented a garment called a cagoule, which made you sweat like a good 'un.
