If you live in an area where the rain is so frequent, then having a rain coat is a must. A rain coat is in fact very important in winter to make you steady whenever it rains. Rain coats can protect you and your clothes from the rain; they are mostly water proof to repel the water drops away from the jacket and prohibit any mess. Rain jackets will give you warmth from cold weathers and insulate your body from the rain, they are made from water proof or water resistant materials like nylon. They can have high collars and attached hoods for extra protection, and they have zippered front fastenings. Rain jackets can also have pockets for your stuff that are also zippered for extra safety. Rain jackets are now available in a wide variety of styles and colors, some of them can have a uni-color and other can have more than one color in one.
