A rain suit is a waterproof garment typically consisting of a jacket and trousers, typically made from a waterproof fabric such as PVC or polyurethane-coated nylon. They are designed to keep the wearer dry during heavy rain or other wet conditions. Rain suits are often worn by cyclists, sailors, workers, and other outdoor enthusiasts to protect against the elements.
Features of a rain suit typically include:
- Waterproof material: The fabric of a rain suit should be waterproof and breathable, allowing the person wearing it to stay dry and comfortable.
- Adjustable hood and waist: Adjustable hoods and waists help keep the rain suit snug against the person's body, reducing the amount of water that can get in.
- Ventilation: Rain suits should have some sort of ventilation system to help keep the wearer from overheating and to keep the suit from becoming stuffy.
- Reflective tape: Reflective tape on the rain suit can help keep the wearer visible in low-light conditions.
- Pockets: Pockets in the rain suit can provide a place to store small items such as keys, phones, and other items.
