Love The RainHmmm there is something special about walking in the rain ..............of course one has to be dressed for the occasion.
Me I love rainwear, not the flimsy nylon stuff or the stuff that never keeps you dry. But the good old fashion stuff like a rubber, plastic or pvc mack.
A nice long one stops the water running inside your wellingtons, or like me I enjpy a pair of waders when country walking. You can splash and never have to care.
There is something about the way the rain just runs off the surface and if you taste it it even tastes of the rubber,pvc or plastic...........lovely.
I usually wear a rain hat or souwester made in the same material or even put my hood up. The sound of rain pitter pattering on the outside is music to the ears.
Do I ever get noticed ...........of course but the dog keeps most at bay and often it is a cheery 'hello' from most people.
Whether they see the mack I am sure they do but most think it is a sensible piece of rainwear. Anyway 'I AM DRESSED FOR RAIN'
and above all HAPPY.
Do I take my rainwear to seriously, to me no. I even wear certain macks in the house for pleasure and to relax in. Plastic macks make lovely dressing gowns.
Perhaps others think I am a bit kinky.....................but who cares what harm do we mack lovers do.
If you want to see a real classic rubber mack, check out the german Klepper (Klepper Mantel). I have three thanks to Ebay and they are truly delicious and a dream to wear. A credit to German engineering and their love for quality.
Well winter is nearly here in the UK.
So wrap up warm and enjoy your macks....................I cetainly am going to.
