Factoring in work, other obligations, and a training plan is a stressful balance for me. Usually I have to pack food for the whole day, have several changes of clothes ready in my car, and keep it all somewhat organized. This past month I was asked to test out the Orange Mud Transition and Seat Wrap. I was especially interested in testing out this product because of my chaotic life.
When I first received the Transition and Seat Wrap, I thought “it looks so simple!” The materials is super soft and plush. I could definitely see using it as a towel in the summer after a hot run. It’s also very durable feeling, with a heavy duty zipper on one end, and a plastic hook belt on the other.
The first time I used the Transition and Seat Wrap was to cover my car seat. Even though it’s cold already in Wisconsin, I still get pretty sweaty after my runs. Having this extra barrier between me and my car seat helped considerably. I’ve had issues in the past where I drove home after a morning run, and when I got back out to my car in my work clothes, my car seat would still be damp. Or I’d attempt to keep a towel in between my sweaty self and the car seat, but it would always fall down. This product eliminated all of these issues.
Another issue I have had to deal with from time to time is changing clothes in my car. This has always involved a lot of ducking and hiding, and awkward fumbling with clothing. But when you have lunch plans after hitting the trails, what else are you going to do? The Transition and Seat Wrap definitely helped make this process a lot smoother. The hook keeps the towel perfectly in place around my body while I change my clothes underneath. No more awkward car changes for me!
Ultimately I would call the Orange Mud Transition and Seat Wrap a game changer for my crazy busy lifestyle. It hasn’t left my car since I got it!
