Rain Veil

Rain goes horizontally, too.

There are few things more annoying than walking through a downpour with your hair dry thanks to your coathood, but your face getting soaked and battered. I propose that raincoats with hoods include something to cover your face - a clear plastic panel, attached by snaps at the sides and open at the bottom for air. When not it use, it tucks into the hood; when in use, it deflects anything that approaches your face.

Or you could wear one of these... http://www.theparka...rfill/downmask.html
...if you wanted to look like a Smurf with mumps. [lostdog, Dec 20 2007]

Didn't they have these in Dune? http://www.rusmilit...s/afganka_visor.gif
Oh, wait, that's Russian military issue... [DrCurry, Dec 20 2007]

Looks like you can get them for your dog http://www.smalldog...com/images/C001.jpg

       Wouldn't a fine screen be better? I think plastic would fog and get creases when not in use. I think the screen would stop most rain and could double as a mosquito net.

       [UnaBubba], I generally wear a fedora; however there are times when it is insufficient, and others when it would be difficult to manuever when not in use.

       If the weather turns smowy, a motorcycle helmet with visor will offer warmth, dryness, protection from wind, clear vision, and ridicule from passers-by.   

       But this idea has merit [+].

       Lifejackets quite often have these. In a rough sea you can actually drown from the spray.

       [Lostdog's link] RUN!!! We're being invaded by Martians!!!   

       Truly, if I had to choose between dying of cold and wearing one of those I would have to think really hard... I would eventually put it on.

       Can they come with wipers?

       - and the reason for wearing a rain veil ? to counter the evil rain of course....

       Chemical suits work much better than rain jackets.

       This year's performance of Bolero just isn't coming together - the musicians just aren't listening to each other. So the conductor taps his stick angrily, and proclaims, "Come on people! Let's get it together! There's no I in Ravel!"
