Reflective RaincoatRainwear

Rainwear are garments that are made to protect the user from rain. Even in tropical terrain, when rain falls, the cold water depletes the body from heat and it can become chilled and more susceptible to harm.

Raincoats can be supplied to be used to be seen in the dark.

A poncho is a simple garment designed to keep the body warm, or if made from an impermeable material, to keep dry during rain. It is essentially a single large sheet of fabric with an opening for the head.

Ponchos are very adaptable to different situations. Ponchos can be used as a raincoat to waterproof the body from rain, along with a blanket they can be used as cover to make a sleeping bag. They can be hung or be attached to other ponchos to make a tent.
