Everything must be well prepared for trips to the wild and raincoats are one of the important equipment that must be prepared during the rainy season. Raincoats are highly recommended because they are easy to carry everywhere compared to umbrellas, but must be properly chosen.

We will explore the bushes and touch the twigs in the wild. Raincoats must be comfortable to wear, not easy to leak and have a quality lightweight material. For this reason, here are simple tips for choosing a good raincoat to use.

Dlium Tips for choosing raincoats, must be comfortable and tough

Avoid ponchos and plastic materials

This model raincoat has a robe-like shape and is not recommended. Besides being unable to wrap our bodies tightly, this type of raincoat is also prone to getting caught in bushes and tree branches. Use a raincoat consisting of two parts, the jacket for the top and pants for the bottom.

Also avoid using raincoats made from plastic and parachutes. Choose a raincoat that uses polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material which is more waterproof than ordinary raincoats made of plastic or parachutes.

Forging connection

Don't choose a raincoat where the parts are sewn. This method allows water to enter through the pores formed due to the sewing process. Choose a hot pressed raincoat to reduce the occurrence of this.

Bright colors and scotlight

Heavy rain comes and we will continue the adventure in very limited visibility. It is recommended to use a raincoat with bright colors such as red, yellow or orange. We will be easily seen by others if we need help.

Scotlight has the ability to reflect light when illuminated by lights. Choose a raincoat that has this feature in one part and we will still be seen by others, even in the dark of the night.
