We live in the desert but I've had my share of run-in's with rain. Growing up in Toronto, one of the worst weather issues is when it is 'freezing cold' but just above freezing, so when it rains it sticks in slushy clumps.
I never understood umbrellas- after going through the effort of holding it- I always end up wet anyway.
When I saw this article about the Umbrella Coat I thought it is genius-
The hood of this jacket, designed by Greek designer Athanasia Leivaditou, converts into a clever 'hands free' umbrella. There are pull strings, similar to a sweatshirt hood, that prevent the hood from popping inside out- another hazard of umbrellas.
The innovation does not stop there- in case of a monsoon or major down pour- your rain coat can convert into a full length jumper!
Would you wear this?
