"If you want to cover yourself up and discretely change into your wetsuit while still looking cool, this is amazing and it's what you are looking for! I've been fantasizing about making my own for the last 20 years since seeing something similar in Japan - but now I don't have to! This fair trade gem is way better than I could have ever imagined." Sachi Cunningham
"This poncho has completely changed my surf game. I can get in and out of my wetsuit in half the time, and I'm fully living in this thing now!" Natasha Brown 
"Surf poncho or year-round Wookie wear? Yes to both! I am loving mine for the pre and post surf change ups, beach blanket out of Babylon, and simply to cut the chill for the après chill. From oceanside to mountainside to fireside it curiously transports me back to the nostalgia of my "blankie" as a little kid. Only this time I'm bigger." Bryan Cole
I LOVE this poncho! I didn't know I needed one until I tried it. I like that the poncho absorbs water from my wet hair while I change instead of getting into my clothes and skin cold and wet. Instead of fumbling with my towel, I was in my clothes more quickly and easily.  It is a game changer in staying warm, dry, and happier!  Julie Cox
"Here is a photo taken in Rhode Island, 15 degrees with wind chill well into the -10. This poncho saved the trip! Super stoked on the product!" Eddie Donnellan and Jeff Johnson
“It’s cozy, functional and fun AND makes you feel like the prophet Moses! Super proud of old friend Josh and his wife Joyce for pulling this off! Btw, Moses because of all the environmental concern that goes into its production! People, change is possible!" João De Macedo
"Perfect for wardrobe stylists and photographers on location too! Models can make wardrobe changes quickly and easily. Much better than lugging around a changing tent, or ducking behind a rock in public to change! I'm ordering one for my kit." Victoria Smith
"I originally ordered this poncho for scuba diving - thought it would be perfect for post-dive chilly days on the beach or boat, or for staying warm during surface intervals. Then I became pregnant and had a baby girl!  The poncho ended up being perfect and cozy for late term maternity, post-baby recovery and nursing! I had a c section so needed to wear something warm and comfy at home that didn’t restrict my belly and was soft enough for baby cuddles.  And roomy armholes were great for nursing." Melissa Foo
"The poncho felt great after trunking it… a perfect post-surf warmer and windbreaker. It feels super soft and I love the pouch to keep my hands warm too! Stoked on the design and quality. Rocking the poncho with a classic Hynson single fin." Trey Highton 
"I think the poncho is awesome! I've been mostly using it for changing on surf trips, but I am also using it increasingly even at home as a quick change-out-of-wetsuit-and-then-walk-around-before-I-get-dressed option. This was not a previously existing clothes category for me. I also tend to leave it on once I change out of my suit, instead of even bothering with other clothes (or maybe put on something on bottom)" Ilim
"Bought one for myself when I saw how perfect they are for post surf. Lined pancho is super warm and functional for the SF winter. Then my wife, her friends and my employees wanted one just because they look dope!!! Thanks to Marlin Ray for making me a trend setter." Andy
"I don’t surf. I teach and take dance classes in the city most days so I throw the (unlined) poncho on over my dance clothes and do errands etc looking fab. I wear it around everywhere-Whole Foods after class etc. People stop me and compliment me on it. I’m definitely taking it w me to Europe this summer to act as my robe/ coverup/ loungewear. Packs compactly and meets several needs. I also ordered the terry lined one which I am taking camping in Tahoe. I would also wear the terry lined one when I take aqua fitness classes." Martha
"The surf poncho from Marlin Ray is epic. I have embarrassed myself more than a few times awkwardly losing my towel while changing a parking lot, in front of someone's house or elsewhere before a surf. No more with this baby. The lined version is also nice and warm for those chilly Norcal mornings. The only bad thing I have to say is that my wife keeps stealing it...Thanks Marlin Ray!" Nik
"Love it, the summer version is super light, water absorbing and looks great. Easy to travel with and you don't look like everyone else. Much better than my thick towel fabric old one. Also got a lined version, which is nice and warm for when its more chilly. Even wear it in the house! Great products, can definitely recommend it!" Danny Fong
"My poncho has not seen the beach...in fact, it has not left my house yet! It is the perfect companion to coffee and croissants in the AM and Netflix and noshes in the PM." Rachel B
