The Hoppediz Rain Cover is a great little item to pack in your bag and carry around with you. ShowMe Slings is based in Scotland so we get a lot of rain whatever the season! Use it over your sling in the summer for protection from the rain without extra heat, or use it over a warm fleece cover in the winter to keep you both warm and dry.
Here are some photos to help you use your Hoppediz Rain Cover – the photos show it being used for a front carry, but it can be used for back carries too – either cross the straps over your front or use them rucksack-style.
The Hoppediz Rain Cover folds away into a little bag, with a strap that can be clipped around your waist or carried over your shoulder when you’re not using it.
Unfold the rain cover and hold it by the straps at the top. Position the top of the carrier at the top of your baby’s shoulders. There is a hood for your baby tucked into a little pocket at the top of the panel – unfold the hood if you need to use it.
Hang the cover straps over your shoulders.
Pull one shoulder strap over across your back. Thread it through the loop at the side of the panel. Repeat with the strap on the other side.
Take the two strap ends behind your back, and tie in a bow.
Now you can adjust the panel to fit. Find the toggle on the side of the carrier and pull the elastic through until the cover fits over your carrier.
If you need to use the hood, you can adjust it to fit your baby using the hood toggles. I like to use a hat under the hood for comfort if I’m not suing the fleece cover underneath.
In winter, you can use a Hoppediz Basic Fleece Cover under your rain cover. So easy to use, just pop it over your own head (if you are using the detachable neck warmer for yourself), and pop your baby’s head through the lower head hole. It has a detachable warm fleecy hood for baby, and adjusts at the sides with elastic and toggles like the rain cover so you get a perfect fit over small babies and large toddlers alike.
