OneSuitWonder

March 28, 2015

The Dutch are well known for their love of bikes. They don't just use a bike for sports. They use it all the time to get from A to B. Shirly Agudo even wrote a book about the Dutch and their bikes: bicycle mania.

Dutch moms multitask on bikes


You can easily recognize a Dutch mom. She'll be riding a bike. One kid in the back, one in the front, while keeping an eye on her third child who'll be riding a little bike alongside her. And to top it off, she's probably carrying a grocery bag!

So it's no surprise the Dutch came up with the OneSuitWonder. Carolyn and Kerry invented this new form of rainwear that's guaranteed to keep you dry.

And I got to try one out.

OneSuitWonder: look and feel

The OneSuitWonder comes in a handy little rucksack. When I took it out, first thing I noticed was it felt like fabric. I have some other rainwear lying around the house, and that has a cheap plastic feel. So I was pleasantly surprised.

I lay it out on the floor. It looked quite big!

The proof is in the rain


So far so good! I liked the OneSuitWonder. I thought it was a very inventive suit. Covering everything. And I loved the bright belt with the pocket.

But of course the big question was: will it keep me dry when it's raining?

So the next time it started pouring outside, I put on my OneSuitWonder and rushed outside. I hopped on my bike and went for a bike ride for about 30 minutes. And when I got home, I was still dry! So the OneSuitWonder works!

Funny movie! 

In this funny movie you see a badass man riding his bike, while wearing a OneSuitWonder. And you'll never guess what he's wearing underneath...


Summing up


The One Suit Wonder is a great solution for everyone who wants or has to go outside when it's raining. It will keep you nice and dry.

However it's quite a lot of work to put on. Which is why I won't be using it. I prefer a handy cape.

Practical information


The OneSuitWonder will go into production soon. But you can order one already in the OneSuitWonder shop. They cost 170 euros. That's about 212 USD.

  1. Out here in the U.S., commuters drive cars to work, but I can see how that suit could come in handy if you ride a bicycle for transportation.

  2. It does look like a lot of work to get on. I wouldnt have use for it since I really dont go out in the rain. I bet some people really could use it though. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

    1. Yes, it really does require some time to get into this suit... That's the biggest drawback. Once you've got it on, it's quite effective.
