    Good stuff - easy to use in the washing machine. I was recommended the product by a friend who swears by it. No water seeps through, tho my horses nip back into their shelter when it rains heavily so I don´t really know how "downpour proof" it is.

    This works quite well - although my first attempt at doing a rain sheet leaked so I had to re-do it, but it's been fine since, as have all the others I've done subsequently.
