I too, used to have a raincoat when I was a little tyke. When I reached high school and onwards, I eventually ditched the raincoat and just bring with me my jacket with hood. Nowadays, I ditched the jacket and hood thingy and just bring a foldable umbrella so that it's easy to squeeze into my backpack.

Hi, oh i remeber my childhood days and my mom used to get colourful raincoats for us every second year. I guess those days umbreallas were rarely used, as rain coats to date are comfortable as you are free to do what you want in the rain. With an umbrella, our hands are tied up with holding the umbrella and half the time if its windy they keep flying off and invariably leave us half wet too! But as we grow up and mature up into men and women, we tend to use the umbreallas more. The umbrealls to have their charm and look so colourful and bright of various shapes, sizes and designs. Its more convenient to carry them around and no matter the rain or the fact that we maybe getting wet, we still prefer using the umbreallas now, than the rain coats. But i still use rain coarts for my kids as they are small as yet, though my elder ones stepping into my shoes and wants an umbreall now, seeing me and her other class mates do the same.

I also remember when i was a kid,I have raincoats with mickey mouse and donald duck design in it..it was very fun to use than umbrella..you are right.now that we are getting older,we prefer to use umbrella than raincoat.even during stormy days,even if it was being destroyed buy the wind.lol. me too..i also want my little sister to use raincoat and umbrella also..I dont want her to get wet because she's more prone to sikness..I guess that's the reason why kids really have to use raincoats than umbrella...and kids doesnt care if it doesnt look good to them..^__^ -thanks for responding!

When I was in Mexico and it was pouring like mad I baught a rain puncho and I still have it and have worn it here. We do not have lots of rain here in California but at times when I do not want to get wet or do not have the extra hands to carry an unbrella I will wear my poncho. I walk with a cane so I only have one hand free. LOL Rain ponchos are great for me to wear.
