This rain cover has a soft plastic and a useful zip. It is much easier to attach than the original cover that came with the pushchair. The original cover had four straps fastened by press studs, two of which broke very quickly. This cover is a better design with clips to attach to the underside of the foot rest and a zip to allow access to the child. If the rain is light, the zip can be undone which allows the child to feel like he/she is not enclosed but the hood of the pushchair and the legs of the foot muff/the child's legs remain dry.
This rain cover does not come so low down the pushchair so slightly less of the basket area underneath is covered.
Initially I rated this item with four stars but I've now reduced that to two. The rain cover split along one of the seams after just five uses. I'm also disappointed with the after sales care. I've asked for a replacement but they won't send one until they've received the damaged one. This is tricky as it will leave me without a rain cover for my child in the middle of winter. I use my pushchair every day. My only option is to purchase a new one and send the damaged one back once I have received the new one, and just hope I am refunded my money.
