Don't forget to layer it with the equally tasteful MontBell Thermawrap skirt :)

Brett,

It is my understanding that ULA coproduces the rain wrap with Etowah outfitters. The Etowah outfitters website lists a skirt that appears the same as the ULA rain wrap but you would need to contact them to find out for sure.

I don't think they make it in a size 38. Left out again.

I've puchased a Thermawrap from Patrick before (jacket, not skirt). A "plus" rating definitely.

Do the sizes refer to length or waist size? I bought the large thinking it was for length (I'm tall) and the wasit was huge! I had to really cinch the elastic cord.

I like it though. Almost as versatile as a bandana :)

Hey thanks everyone. I have about a 38 waist so I think I will be fine with the L. I just need this before he reopens. Thanks again.

Etowah outfitters = ULA rain wrap on 10/24/2008 15:23:12 MDT Print View

Hi,

I confirm that it is exactly the same rain wrap proposed by Etowah outfitters, to the 11 USD more compared to ULA.

I saw one in the "happy hiker" shop, Gatlinburg TN, at the border of the Great Smoky Mountains national park.

Definitely a great peace of kit.

I wonder why the 44% mark up for the same piece of gear?

rain gear on 10/25/2008 09:44:18 MDT Print View

You know this thread has brought to my attention what appears to be an incredibly efficient and convenient piece of rain gear for the climate I hike in most of the time. Unfortunately it is not available, ULA currently closed and Ettowah, who apparently targets prospective customers who have no sense of the value of a dollar. However it appears to be very simple and cheap to MYOG it. Just a rectangular piece of fabric with some Velcro or snaps. Has anyone done this?

MYOG it on 10/27/2008 07:33:02 MDT Print View

I have and it's indeed dead easy. I copied from some other (normal wear) skirt with a tapered waist but I guess you can just cut it straight like a cone section and it should be fine. I used velcro for the closure.

I works very well depeding on conditions. It's so light and packable you can carry it in a pocket and put it on almost on the go.

>I have and it's indeed dead easy

Ditto. I just used the measurements off the ULA website and added a bit for the seams. Easy on, easy off, plus a great groundsheet/pack cover stc...
