I don't prefer either, but I will carry an umbrella when it is raining sometimes. I just don't like the drippy mess that an umbrella makes. I know I will not carry one when it is windy and raining again. Too many times, an inside out umbrella. LOL

I prefer to use an umbrella but for the last few years as I have been pushing a buggy it has been practical to wear a raincoat as didn't have a spare hand to hold umbrella. I don't mind getting wet anyway unless I am going somewhere special. I find the rain quite refeshing. Ellie :D

I like the raincoat. The raincoat is also portable, and the most important reason is I can take on it when there is strong wind. the city I live in is always has strong wind, so when it rain with the strong wind, the umbrella is almost useless, but the raincoat can keep me away from the rain, it's so convenient.

Hi mnsrwt, I prefer umbrella as I feel that it’s quite romantic to walk in the drizzle with my loved one with his one hand holding the umbrella and the other resting on my waist.

I prefer an umbrella too. Truthfully though most of the time I just park close and run to wherever I'm going. I forget my umbrella half the time anyway.

I have seldom saw raincoat these years.I remember when i was young only a child ,it is more usually to wear raincoat.if people only work on the road or roam in the street i think most of the people will choose to have a umbrella to keep out of the rain.but if you drive mobile or ride a bike i think it is better to wear rain coat.we only have two hands and it is not safe for use to hold umbrella when we are drive. nowadays there are less and less raincoat on the road or in the street when raining heavily.people don't like to wear it.i think maybe it is not easy for us to use.we can take a small umbrella in our bag and when it rains we only have to take it out.don't you think it is easy for us?i think maybe some of the people think it is ugly to wear raincoat.like the raincoat.nowadays i never see the rainshoes.whether the rain is so heavy,we all choice to wear beautiful choes or confortable choe to wear.maybe the qicken development of ecnomic,people have more cars,so we don't need raincoat. at last,for me i prefer umbrella.

I prefer using an umbrella when walking outside. Often though, I find myself running across the road with a grocery bag over my head because I forgot where I last left the umbrella. Hehe, raincoats are just so tacky that I'd rather be wearing a t-shirt. In fact, I don't think I've ever worn a raincoat in my life!

i also prefer to use umbrella but actually i always bring both of them everyday in my bag due to unpredicted weather at this moment. i bring rain coat cause i picked up by my husband from my office place to home by motor cycle, so it means i should wear rain coat than umbrella

Rain coat and unbrella,I prefer both.Because when I am with my bike I have to use raincoat.But it is not easy as an umbrella to use.To wear this is not feels me a good one.Umbrella is smaller that reain coat and easy to use.BUt some working people cannot avoid raincoats.Because when we are using the rain coatcoat,it is more flexible to do jobs.Thanks

When i was young, a kid, i will prefer rain coat because it's like a new clothing i get to wear only on rainy days and there are so many colors to choose from.. LOL ^_^ However when i'm in my teens, no rain coats or umbrellas for me, because i wanna act cool, stay in the rain.. LOL ^_^ But now, an older me, i will use an umbrella as it;s more convenient and easier to keep it inside my bag, and can be used anytime when it rains suddenly ^_^
