What is the best type of raincoat?
This person looks miserable photo by author

Would a poncho be good enough or what about a glad garbage bag with a hole cut in it?

The weather now days is so unpredictable and if you wear caught out in the rain what type of raincoat would you prefer to wear?

I think the best rain coat is one that is knee length and made from a waterproof material, in which the water remains as droplets that slide off. After a few years that waterproof begins to degrade, but you can buy a spray that makes it work again.
The one in the photo was a clear gabbage bag with a hole slit in it. One of the guys on tour didn't have a raincoat and it started to pour. Atleast he kept a bit dry, but he extremely miserable.
To wear? I think that the best to wear would be a knee length one, as Bryony mentioned. A knee length one will keep more of your clothes dry, but it should be made out of a type of coated nylon. This material allows some air to pass through, making it breathable, but is also waterproof.
My favorite is my full length gortex jacket.

Definitely a water proof one, with a hood pulled tight and elastic cuffs to stop the rain getting in. I'd like it to be calf length, loose and as fashionable as possible.That would certainly be better thabn the three dollar emergency plastic poncho I keep in the car glove box.
'where', try 'wear'.
'wear', try 'were'.

THE best rainwear to have is a 'Drizabone' coat, short whilst on a horse, & long for normal wear, & an 'Akubra' wide brimmed hat.

Next best is a plastic, long well-fitting raincoat, gum boots, & a big umbrella.

Lastly, a automatic umbrella.

When working, I always carried an umbrella in my briefcase. Had one in my work locker, back seat, & boot of my car, & a spare at home.

All/any of the above have kept me happily dry!
