The demand for more ohysical freedom during rainy days.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This raincoat is a combination of a rain coat, an umbrella and waterproof trousers. Depending on the weather conditions and the amount of rain it can be adjusted to different levels of protection. For example the coat can be converted to trousers if the water level is high. In advance the hood of the raincoat is hybrid between a hood and an umbrella that can really protect the face even from heavy rain. A transparent plastic membrane can be an extension of the hood for almost full cover and during windy days strings can keep the hood in its position.
His unique feature is that it combines raincoat and umbrella in one item. With the “umbrella raincoat” your hands are free. Also, it can be perfect for sport activities like riding a bicycle. In addition in a crowded street you do not bump into other umbrellas as the umbrella-hood extends above your shoulders.
