"Nothing ruins a bike commute more than a rain shower.

To solve this problem, the Amsterdam-based bike design company Vanmoof designed a poncho that keeps riders dry, even in snow or a downpour. Called the Boncho, it's like a wearable tent that repels water.

My brother-in-law who served two (2) tours in Vietnam said to me "always keep your feet dry." This gadget would not work for me.
