Once again many thanks for your help.
Indeed rubber rainwear bargains are very rare these days. About 10 years ago I walked into a branch of Sue Ryder (Charity/Thrift Shop in the UK) and was aware of a very rubbery aroma. I found 2 apparently unworn single texture off white macs made by Weather or Not; one double breasted and one single. At £7 UK each, these were definitely a bargain!

Happy days

weatherite raincoats are "vintage" meaning they where made in the style that has been around forever. long rubber, buckles, cape vent etc
worn by almost everyone at one time or another. (you can get buckles at rkd rubber if you want) condor and rainfair are exactly the same style like weatherite except that they have snaps not buckles. condor is a classic yellow rubber raincoat/jacket. when you think of a yellow rubber raincoat, this is it.
i like rkd rubber also because of the various styles but staying with the basic rubber parka style with snaps and zippers with patch pockets.
also the cost anyone can afford.

i believe that there are other rubber raincoat suppliers out there, just do not have time to search for all of them. but so far these are the best.

I'd like to add that the newer rubber raincoats from Condor/Rainfair are heavier and stiffer than the old Weatherite coats. My Condor raincoat seems to be of thicker rubber and bonded to heavy canvas, while my old Weatherite from the '60s is of a thinner, softer rubber, and has a thin cotton lining, and is overall much softer and more flexible than the newer coats.

RKD WILL CUSTOM MAKE THEM...I HAVE DONE THAT....BUT THE CONDOR BRAND IS EXACTLY LIKE THE WEATHERITE JUST NOT WITH BUCKLES.....RKD WILL MAKE WITH BUCKLES.....THEIR WEB-SITE EVEN HAS SOME RAINCOATS WITH BUCKLES. WEATHERITE I THINK WAS TAKEN OVER BY A COMPANY KNOWN AS NELSON.....THEY MAKE A LOT OF OUTDOOR GEAR.
