Despite the wonderful convenience of Pakamacs, I have my eyes on an olive green heavy latex rubber mac, from Weathervain, and this may be my next purchase..for thought...a rubber mac...rubber mac...The comments are good, but the macs themselves would be even better.Just "follow the yellow-brick road", and let us know how you fare. Some months ago, on a very hot afternoon, I took some selfies of me in one of my navy Stay-Dry nylon macs, and these are on display on my Flickr site.The sun was so vivid, the mac appeared almost ROYAL BLUE!I was standing at the lake, near to Isobel's house, hoping she would appear, but not on this occasion.However, the whole leafy area remains my favourite haunt for outdoor macking.
They give the mac and the wearer a beautifully "chunky" appearance. My parents were rather strict when I was growing up, and one of their rules was that a pakamac would be my summer coat.Because the girls preferred the more colourful macs, which were frowned upon, it followed that far more boys wore the standard plastic Pakamacs than girls.However, a few girls did have their own way, and I recall a beautiful see-through mac in a vivid emerald green, well worn.We waterproof enthusiasts must stick together and share as many experiences as possible. Jeff has mentioned the possibility of displaying my items in a museum-again a wonderfully creative idea.
My great friend/contact/near-partner, Susan, has not only marvellous wardrobes of plastic and nylon macs, but also a wonderfully comprehensive knowledge of such items.John,if you after a brand new nylon mac,buttoned,collared,in the traditional Pakamac style,you may have problems.
