I had the Jupe fitted to my doorless Twizy recently - and this-morning was the first morning drive to work where its use was at-all justified, so I gave it a go.
I had already decided that I would remove the parts for the rear passenger from the bag and stow them in the lockable storage - I can’t imagine I’d take passengers in the kind of weather where I’ll opt for the blanket - so sitting in the car, unzipping the bag and pulling the blanket over was remarkably easy (as was stowing it back in again on arrival to work).
I had assumed the weighted bottom “skirt” of the blanket would rest easily along the floor beside the seat - not so when you pick up speed!they frequently got taken by a gust of wind and popped OUTSIDE the vehicle, slapping against the bodywork… I’d guess that if the thing weren’t velcro’d behind the drivers seat, it would have torn free and been left by the roadside on more than one occasion. It’s easy enough to pick it up and plonk it back on the floor without having to stop driving - but that’s not the point, I don’t want to be made nervous about safety in-order to gain a little comfort through the winter months!
I can see that the weighted parts are also stiffened - perhaps they could tuck-in under the side of the seat - or maybe I’m just doing something wrong? Anybody else in here have any experience of the Jupe? Please tell me I’ve overlooked something?
I also can’t really see any point in the very short fastening straps each side of the front section of the jupe - again, what am I missing here? Currently I’m seriously thinking maybe I need a strap or a bungie or something to tie the jupe around my legs above the knees to keep it in place!
