Orange Mud designed the Transition & Seat Wrap to function as both a towel wrap and a seat protector.
I discovered the versatility of a full-sized bath towel while participating in Ragnar Relay multi-day races.
A single towel could serve as a body wrap when changing clothing, a blanket for warmth, a seat protector, and even a pillow if folded/rolled.
I was looking at triathlon transition towels and spa towels wraps in search of a velcro-less solution (I dislike how velcro tends to catch on fabrics) when a fellow Ragnarian mentioned the Orange Mud Transition & Seat Wrap.
The product is made in the USA.
The care directions indicate wash cold and dry cool.
The transition wrap feature consists of an impact resistant polymer clip that fastens easily and securely to a laser cut belt.
The seat cover feature consists of a section of the towel that zips into a hoodie. This hooded portion can be pulled over the headrest of your car seat. It's long enough that it drapes over and protects the edge/side of your seat from potentially dirty calves/legs.
I ignored the care instructions and washed my lime green Transition & Seat Wrap in hot water and dried it in high. This did not appear to diminish the integrity of the towel but the towel did leave behind generous amounts of lime green fuzz.
I highly recommend washing your towel multiple times before use - and with items that do not attract lint. The towel did eventually stop shedding after a few washes - and the hot water/high heat hasn't had any negative effects on it even after a few months.
The Transition & Seat Wrap comes in 16 colors:
- Neon Yellow
- Royal Blue
- Neon Pink
- Hunter Green
- Navy Blue
- Sunshine Yellow
- Caribbean Blue
- Lime Green
- Salsa Red
The product was thoughtfully designed and well made.
