This is very similar to the Rukka coat that Mary has in her stories

At the moment I have a shiny thick black Yarmouth mac, it is in great shape despite being 30 years old.

I bought it on ebay Germany two years ago and it is the most waterproof mac I have ever worn. Needless to say I wear it constantly and have had some real good comments.

Another great colour for rukka macs is bright red and yes it would wear that colour in public also.
It was lovely in sweden in the 80s - 90s. All girls/women wore rukka raincoats in blue, red, yellow. It was heaven.

That is a very fine item. I can brag that I have one blue, one red with thermal lining, and one russet. But I have, also, one black slicker type with
the strap around the neck. Also--I have a peculiar one. It is by Rukka, all right, but is identical to Swedish military ones from Sportsmens' HQ some
years back, and has the three Swedish crowns (I guess) inside. Does anybody know how a Finnish outfit was making stuff for the Swedes? A mystery.

Some Finnish firms were (and are?) producing goods for the Swedish military. For example, Nokian made the official Swedish Army rubber boots (Gummistövlar 90) (the second maker of these wellies was Acton from Canada).

Thanks for the info. Who would have thought that the Swedes would employ the Finns--but thinking again, outsourcing is all the rage. "Globalization."
Then I remember that when the US Army decided to switch to berets for everybody (self esteem for all) there was quite a fracas when they were
going to have them made in China(!!!!). That idea didn't last long. Ah, the military mind in action--a fearsome thing. Well, thanks again for the info.
Yours,

Is Ebay the best place to find shiny Rukkas?

(Sigh..) I wish I could find a shiny Rukka in ANY color in my size... I think in 4 years on ebay, I have only seen 2 size 52 Rukkas. I have a black and silver Rukka one piece motorcycle suit that I love.
