It has an elegant look. 37" in front, 50" wide, and 24" in back. 22" long flexible nylon zipper and a hood. Slides down over the shoulders easily. Apply velcro loops to the area on the cape near a bar to prevent it from rising in a stiff wind. The outside is 50%-50% polyester cotton and the lining is 100% nylon Taslan, which feels like a silky cotton. This cape is machine washable on warm. The Taslan lining comes out of the wash with an interesting crinkly texture. It does not shrink in warm water and a warm dryer.Item can't be returned or exchanged if monogramming is added.
