    Anyone know where I can get one? All the stores and sites I'm checking are selling these dressy, lightweight, stylish jackets. But what I want is a good, durable, old fashioned ugly rain coat. You know, yellow, big hood, heavy duty, etc? After a while I stopped looking in the women's sections altogether and started checking the men's departments, but the only thing I can find remotely close is on LL Bean for AT LEAST $100.00 and up to $200.00. No way am I paying that much for a lightweight fashionable thing that I will RUIN out tending to animals. Any ideas? Preferably a website, I really prefer to shop from home.

    Still need advice on where to find a raincoat, but a side note: While looking in the men's section on Eddie Bauer, I did happen to run across my future husband... [​IMG]

    It's being altered to fit in/around my wheelchair. basically, there's a pocket in the back of the skirt (it's a foot longer in back, to my SITTING measurements). So i can stop keep it out of the wheels. Eliminates the need for a second blanket.

    Still looking. I can find some that LOOK like the old yellow kind, but upon closer inspection it's a really thin material, and reading reviews people complain that they rip easily. I am still trying to find a halfway decent one. Any other ideas? What about other things to search for? Sometimes you just need the right search terms... I'm searching "fisherman raincoat".... "heavy duty raincoat"...... what else? Or if anyone knows any sites that sell general farm/home/camping gear let me know and I can check. Never expected to have such a hard time finding this!!
