[Released] Enlightened Equipment ‘Rain Wrap’

with 4 comments

Greetings Adventurers!

A new rain wrap/kilt has hit the market today, called the “Rain Wrap“, from Enlightened Equipment.

There is not a lot of specs when it comes to a rain kilt/wrap, but the jist of it is that the Rain Wrap is 1.4 oz for a small, 1.75 oz for a medium, and 2.1 ounces for the large, and the fabric is a waterproof 15D Silnylon.
