I had one of those, well it sounds about the same. Unfortunately the rubber started to perish and peel off in tiny hard pieces. Can't remember the make but I think it was an American brand made in Asia.

Unfortunately the rubber raincoats with metal clasps are no longer manufactured. Your best bet is to scour eBay and other second-hand websites for one. They do pop up sometimes.

I have a couple of these - brand new old stock with clasps. I can send photos if you are interested?

Hello RainWearSeeker,

I am sorry I do not own an example of a "Rainfair" or "Condor" to compare to.

I can say this, in the big city (Dallas) there is a Army-Navy War Surplus store. I did notice a few weeks ago an "oil skin" coat with the brass clasps just like you are looking for. It was actually in good condition and I almost bought it. I have so many coats already and did not buy. My thought is eBAY maybe your best bet.

MR
