Commute in Style with Dry Patch

The mercurial British weather has exercised dominion over so many of my London commutes and routines. When the rain comes it skews every good intention of a decent hike or bike ride across the city to make my various appointments. Instead, begrudgingly, I allow the elements to dictate my travel plans and often plump for a convenient Uber or tube ride. Perhaps though I should also plump for recognition of what Al Gore might call, an inconvenient truth; I'm at heart inherently lazy.

However, there could be an easy, yet fashionable fix. Introducing the Dry Patch Velo Seat Cover. With designs based on evolution and innovation, their premium lifestyle focused products are designed to keep you dry from the bottom up. How often have you settled to wipe down the seat of your cycle with the sleeve of your jacket or bastardise a shower cap in the form of an ungainly sheath?

The unique Velo Seat Cover is 100% waterproof and designed to fit any bicycle seat. The Dry Patch 3-layer design provides comfort and grip alongside that all important wet bum protection. The bottom layer of Chamois soaks up water whilst gripping the seat. The middle layer of medical grade silicone creates an impenetrable barrier between your rear and the water, and the leather top provides a comfortable feel and fashionable look. The handy carry bag and carabiner means you can clip it to just about anything too.

I gave the Dry-Patch Velo Seat Cover a proper dry run during the week to test out it's functionality and imperviousness. As far as comfort goes it offered a sustainable cushion as I wove through upflung pigeons that adorned the Marble Arch benches. To test the cover out fully I preceded to dip the saddle in a nearby fountain, which caught the attention of two local bobbies of whom, luckily, were amused at the conceit. Just as Dry Patch had prophesied the medical grade silicone provided a sufficient barrier, ensuring that the rest of journey was dry and damp-free.
