A Waterproof Solution For The Rainiest Of Days
Slowtide’s Waterproof Changing Poncho will protect you in the harshest of conditions.
The sun isn’t coming out today.
You can see a bit of a pulse through the fog, but you haven’t shut the car off yet. The radio is still playing, the seat heater is still cooking, and the sets taunt you between passes of the windshield wipers.
It’s cold outside. Not snowing, but 50 degrees and raining. Which is actually way colder than snow. The local tough guy is suiting up in the spot next to you. He left the house in board shorts, a tee, and flip-flops because, “It’s not even that cold outside.” Mr. Macho lets his only set of clothes soak up the rain as he slips into his wetsuit. But you? You’re not that guy.
In fact, you’re much smarter. First, you entertain the possibility of changing in your car, but it’s no good. The chance of injury seems too high, and the tint on the windows isn’t up to par. Then, you remember the Slowtide Waterproof Changing Poncho that you purchased a while ago. You retrieve it from the back seat, take the key out of the ignition, and step out into the cold rainy horror scene.
Your cloak is impenetrable. Every drop of water that hits your body slides right off. Your skin is dry, your clothes are protected, and the caressing sensation of warmth you felt in the car hasn’t gone anywhere.
You slide into your wetsuit, neatly place the dry change of clothes in the trunk, and enter the water.
Now you’re getting wet, but it’s on your own terms. The harsh weather doesn’t dictate when it’s time to start shivering. You do. Because you, my friend, are the proud, warm, and dry owner of a Slowtide Waterproof Changing Poncho.
