Rainsformer / Rainsformer


Both umbrellas and raincoats have their own strengths and weaknesses. When we are riding bicycles in rainy day, we tend to wear raincoat. However, as we get off the bike, it is more convenient to use an umbrella. Rainsformer combines umbrellas and raincoats’ advantages. Let the raincoat transform into an umbrella!
