Users comments
Often the user needs a coat just to move between car and house. Putting on the cap is fast and easy. She has sewn the cape in different fabrics for different occasions, see related tip.

Purchased capes are often sewn with too much fabric and get in the way when driving the wheelchair. This model, which the user developed, is warm and does not get in the way when she drives the wheelchair.
