    Default double raincover

    Hi, I am after a raincover, i have a really lightweight basic double stroller but it has no raincover and boy did the boys get wet on the school run this morning!! i need the sort that has a frame on it as the stroller has no hoods to use the other sort on. I have tried everywhere, only one i found was on ebay but postage was 12.99 which i think is a bit extreme.Any ideas anyone, please????

    i haven't seen those ones with frames for years - I am guessing a double version would be expensive and not sure it would stay up brilliant, it would fall forward.

    What about those buggy capes you can buy or all in one rainsuits and wellies for the boys. Then you can use the rainsuits for garden play too!

    eBay My World - apollo01723

    this is an online supplier of raincovers that i found through ebay, although i contacted them direct as the cover i wanted wasn't listed!

    they used to make raincovers for mothercare and i'm very happy with them. i've bought several raincovers over the years ( due to 'new to me' buggies not having raincovers! )

    i used to have one, kicking myself we got rid of it, worked really well, not sure about the buggy capes, did look into it but think the little one i have wouldnt be happy in it, he goes mad with a raincover/blanket/cosy toes anything really and cant see him keeping a cape on. Rainsuits arte a fab idea , will def look into them Thanks too obvious i couldnt see it!!!
