Out of the Rain (Raincoats)Streaming Video - 2013
Not surprisingly, the British were the pioneers in making fabrics watertight. Charles Macintosh invented a waterproofing rubber concoction, and British officers were the first to wear trench coats. The history of rainwear - from the rubber boot to the sou'wester - is a case study in how necessity is the mother of invention.
