Rain jacket

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I recently acquired this rain jacket. It is still very supple and quite wearable. My question is how to keep it in its current condition as much as possible since these items have a tendency to stiffen over time. Are there certain do's and don'ts'?

THE ANSWER IS VERY SIMPLE------------ LEAVE IT ALONE. I HAVE A 44 DATED PONCHO AND IT IS IN A FOOT LOCKER IN A CONTROLED ENVIRONMENT. PLAY WITH IT YOU CAN DAMAGE IT.

I agree with costa, leave it alone. Avoid extreme temperatures as well as temperature changes. I would also keep it out of direct sunlight.

I also agree with the "leaving it alone" mantra. One thing I would highly recommend is to store it flat. Storing it folded can result in damaging creases especially if it does begin to stiffen. One friend of mine had a beautiful "supple" raincoat that he purchased and put away. He pulled it out for a display several months later and it had stiffened to the point that it couldn't be unfolded.
