What is the Orange Mud Transition Wrap?
Basically, it’s a towel that has three functions in one.
- Normal towel
- Zip up one short side to make a pocket that sits on your car seat headrest to make a perfect seat protector
- Use the notched belt around the long side to secure it around your waist so you can change underneath it, or just wear it as a “skirt”

My Experience with the Orange Mud Transition Wrap
When I learned that BibRave Pros would have the opportunity to try this product, all I could think was, “Now where was this after the Spartan Race?! And the Color Run?!” This thing would have come in SO HANDY–for changing, for drying off, for keeping car seats clean… I was so muddy after the Spartan that when I took my shoes off, it looked like I was wearing brown pants instead of capris. And then I awkwardly tried to position a beach towel on my car seat to keep it clean, whereas the Transition Wrap would have had it covered. Literally.
I will be 100% honest and say that I didn’t get to use the towel as much as I would have liked. I hit kind of a running slump shortly after receiving the towel, so I didn’t do any big long, dirty, sweaty runs. However, I found other ways to make it useful. After a very chilly, rainy run, it was great for drying off and staying warm on my drive home. And I also used it to protect my couch when I was too lazy to shower and change after a run before parking my butt to watch Netflix.
In addition to being a very cleverly designed piece of gear, it’s also just a very nice soft, absorbent towel. I actually wished I’d had room to take it to Disney in my carry-on, because the lines for the changing tents at Wine and Dine were ridiculous, but with this, I could have changed anywhere!
If you’d like to get your hands on an Orange Mud Transition Towel, check out the website. It comes in 14 great colors, and I anticipate it being VERY useful when Ben and I go camping this summer. If you decide you just have to have one of your very own, use code “BIBRAVE” for 15% off your order!

Would you change underneath a towel? I have, and I’m sure I will do it again…
