Variable Sized Raincoat / Raincoat Design

Variable Sized Raincoat
Variable Sized Raincoat

Cheap and rarely used, raincoats are not often thought of as long-lasting products. Most raincoats are produced in just one size, regardless of the differences in size between people. This does not add to the perceived value of the raincoat – as a product to be retained and re-used. Variable Sized Raincoat targets reduced wastage by allowing the size of the raincoat to be adjusted. Strategically placed buttons allow sleeve and body of the raincoat to be folded up to suit people of different sizes, making it a product that can be retained and re-used from childhood to adulthood. This raincoat is made with durable EVA.
