GOAL: Create a rain skirt for warmer weather to provide a more breathable alternative to rain pants.


Design considerations

Some of the variations we're toying around with primarily involve the way the skirt secures and cinches around the waist. We're exploring combinations of velcro, shock cord, zippers and cinches. We're also looking into ways to better secure the bottom of the skirt to improve performance in wind.

After exploring several options, we are zeroing in on the final design.
