Folding & Care Instructions for your Mister Antony Raincape

There are various acceptable methods for folding the raincape neatly into its pouch. Rolling into a ball & stuffing it inside is not one of them!

We recommend the following:

  1. Lay the raincape down flat, the right way up with collar pointing to the right.
  2. Fold the whole raincape inside out bringing the four front edges of the coat & top-cape to lie on top of each other. Pleat the top-cape neatly inside the coat.
  3. Fold the skirt of the coat neatly over the front edge, then fold the raincape completely in half so the collar lies at the hem. The folded raincape will now be lying in a long rectangular shape.
  4. Fold the rectagle shape 3 times into 1/3rd size & then fold once in half. The raincape is now ready for inserting into the pouch.
  5. If required a warm steam iron on the top-side of the fabric will eliminate any creases.
  6. When not in use, always hang the raincape on a peg or hanger. Use the pouch for short periods only & never use when raincape is damp or wet.

  1. Excellent coverage!

    Posted by Dolly Fox on 24th Mar 2024

    This rain cape is sturdy and will certainly hold up in the rain while keeping the pipe bag (and me) dry. I thought there were sleeves but the cape is large enough to cover your arms if you order the correct size. Another quality product from J Higgins!

  2. Great quality and design, runs larger than size chart.

    Posted by Jim on 17th Nov 2022

    My only complaint is that it is definitely larger than their size chart indicates. Almost sent it back for something smaller, but overall it works. I followed their size chart exactly

  3. Good quality

    Posted by Karen O'Driscoll on 20th Sep 2022

    Fit as described, well-made, good quality. Fast shipping. Very happy with this.

  4. Frugal Buy

    Posted by Ronald Tucker on 10th May 2021

    I was very impressed with the cape. My first Mr Anthony was bought at the Cowal Games in Dunoon Scotland. This new cape has great features and is of high quality. The price makes it frugal. I didn't think I could afford a good cape, but this is it.

    great item, fast service and despatch. Pleased with all round quality and fit. Best value around.

  7. Excellent waterproof!

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Sep 2019

    Tested the cape in a driving rainstorm. Kept everything completely dry. (No rain down the collar even.) Well made (sealed seams, rugged quality material and closures, convenient pockets). Looks great. Unreservedly recommend it!

  8. rapid delivery

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Jul 2019

    I would highly recommend this supplier as their service was fast, accurate as promised. Their delivery was rapid and delivered as promised!

  9. Great for musicians

    Posted by David S. on 2nd Nov 2018

    This is a quality product. It keeps me dry and the cape is roomy enough to accommodate the pipes, while the non-slip patch holds them securely in place. The deep pockets are great for all the paraphernalia that is needed when playing a gig. Weather can change unexpectedly so I make sure it's with me anytime I perform.

  10. Fast shipping but No rain yet!!

    Posted by Rob K on 3rd Jul 2018

    The Cape is more like a coat. Many flaps to cover bag pipes. The Cape came in a very nice pouch. The seams are very secure. I am sure I will be staying dry from here on out.
