Are you thinking of those fantastic Dunlop rubber raincoats of the 50's ?
I'm not an Aussie, by the way, but I do remember seeing pictures of them, way back.

I'm from Australia and have several variations of the Dunlop raincoats, a ladies rubber-lined with hood, two small Dunlop Black reversibles and a green rubber reversible on tan-coloured cotton. It always surprises me that Australia had four different companies (Dunlop, Hardie, Bramac and NARM) producing variations of the reversible rubber raincoat but no other country (to my knowledge) manufactured them. I'm almost finished making a reversibe rubber raincoat in the reversible Dunlop style using Rakjumar black polished rubberised cotton.
