Amazing how the mention of riots got onto the subject of rainwear....there again it would prove if there was an item of rainwear 100% waterproof with the full force of a water cannon

Any offers to be the one too stand there in a mac of your choice...just waiting for the water to erupt if that is the right word "erupt"

Now about the expected rain here in the South East this morning...a passing shower but no worry...my brown nylon mac got an outing

I noticed as the rain stopped the protection of many ...the umbrella was folded up...but me....so nice wearing my nylon mac so I kept it on.....

Now it hangs on the door waiting for its next outing,,Rain or no rain it could be later today

I would not stand in front of a water Cannon! Not at 300 psi!
Even better than a water cannon an airport fire engine!
Throws out a jet of water 80 metres rather than 10 metres from a water cannon! lol lol
It has been raining down here in Essex not much as you say.
Not been out yet but when I do I think it will be my grey nylon mac.

Depended on time of year / how warm it was.

Winter; Cotton overalls / t. shirt / underwear

Summer: (warm) possibly t.shirt - always pants - daren't go without them - some "strange" people work in the Steel Industry...lol

Not yesterday, but recently I spent a few days on holiday and took my Weather Vain SBR shorty raincoat with me....just in case.
I bought it last winter but it’s only recently I’ve felt confident enough to wear it out and about and spent four days on the trot wearing it while on holiday. Some holiday, it rained every day but at least I had my rubber raincoat with me, which gave me something to smile about.
I know that sounds ridiculous but I also know there is still a stigma attached to rubber raincoats and would – even now – be embarrassed to meet a work colleague or friend wearing my rubber coat.
So I only wear it if I’m away from my own locality – which is a shame because I do get satisfaction from wearing it.
I've blogged all my thoughts about wearing an SBR mackintosh in public - far too much for this forum I think. But you can read here in full if you wish http://respectingmistress.blogspot.com/
