Vintage...I don't think so!

Post by plasphil » December 12th, 2018, 2:12 pm

Found this 'rare' raincoat on Etsy. It is claimed to be from the 1970's but looks like a recent PUL product to me? Only £74.34 + £19.41 shipping to the UK, what planet are these people on!

Is that even PUL? It looks more like one of those cheap Chinese EVA raincoats that are all over eBay & Amazon these days for like 15 bucks

I see many misleading descriptions. most of the time I find a rubber raincoat listed, it is really pvc.

I have had that problem time and time again, description saying it's rubber and it is obviously pvc. Even had one of our cousins in the USA telling me they were the same thing !

Or if you're only interested in the fun side rather than the authenticity you could get essentially the same thing from AliExpress for about a fiver.
