My yellow Carradice rain cape is effective and useful for my three-mile commute I now ride, sometimes in the rain.

We can deride Brooks' excessive new product without maligning the proud institution of the British rain cape and insulting my preferences. Rain capes may be of no use to you, and I don't find them very useful for recreational riding, but they work quite as intended for certain purposes.
