I prefer the length of the Campmor Cascade Cagoule. It has snaps at the waist and hem to decrease the length from my ankles to my waist. Snap the front of the cagoule up to your waist and leave the back and sides long and your are able to protect a leather saddle while riding. This configuration of front short, back and side long, leaves a lot of open air space underneath you when you are riding. It works like a cape, lots of air flow to reduce sweating. When siting and waiting out the rain, I leave the length long, sit and pull my legs inside cagoule. This keeps me fully protected from the rain. The final benefit is that when needed, the garment is big enough to take a shower via a sponge, soap and water inside the garment, without exposing myself.
