The ‘fears’ of rain jackets are so common, we thought we’d give them a mention here.
But it turns out that ‘predictably’ rain jackets can do the job just fine.
“It is an iconic part of urban life.
In the urban environment, we wear it to avoid the elements,” says Manoj Joshi, founder of the Rain Jacket Institute and founder of The Outdoor Clothing Store in Delhi.
“In fact, we are the only indoor apparel brand that sells rain jackets.
If you are wearing a rain suit you will avoid the sun, and therefore will avoid sweating and sweating and perspiring.”
The reason for this is that rain jackets protect against the elements by insulating you against the rain, which causes perspiration and sweating.
The jacket also keeps you dry by reducing your body temperature.
The coat has many uses, including for a winter jacket, for people who are in a hurry and who want to go out at a faster pace, or for people in the tropics who are not accustomed to staying dry in winter.
“You can buy rain jackets in most stores, or in online retailers,” Joshi says.
“The jacket is not a fashion item but a necessity.
You need to buy it for your safety, but also for your comfort and convenience.”
Rain jackets can also save you money, as they have a low price tag.
If the rain jacket you buy lasts a year, the price is around Rs. 10,000 ($16).
But if it lasts two years, the cost will be about Rs. 50,000.
“When you buy a rain coat, you buy it with a view to a long-term survival, and not just a quick fashion statement,” Joshisaid.
The reason why rain jackets work for the outdoors is because they keep you warm during the day, which means you can sleep in it and stay dry at night.
Rain jackets also keep you dry, and it also helps to prevent frostbite.
“As soon as you put on your rain jacket, it stays on for a while.
That keeps you comfortable,” Josh says.
In the long run, a raincoat is a necessity for all outdoor activities.
But even if you don’t have a rainsuit, you should be wearing one anyway.
It’s an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, Joshi added.
“It’s good to know that if you get a cold, you have a jacket,” he said.
When it comes to buying a rainshirt, Joshisays that he prefers to buy one at an outlet.
“If I go to an outlet and they sell one at Rs. 20, I buy one,” he says.
If there are other retailers selling rain jackets, Josh says, “they have a lot of good ones.
But I do not recommend buying one online.”
