A raincoat, sometimes known as a slicker, is a raincoat or slicker that is used to shield the body from rain. Raincoats that are waist length are sometimes referred to as rain jackets. A rain suit can be made by combining a rain jacket with a pair of rain trousers; a rain suit can also be made in one piece, similar to a boilersuit.

Modern raincoats are frequently made of permeable waterproof materials like Gore-Tex or Tyvek, as well as coated nylons. These materials let water vapour flow through, allowing the garment to ‘breathe’ and enable the wearer’s perspiration to leave. The quantity of rain that a raincoat can withstand is frequently expressed in millimetres, or water gauge.


Around 1200 AD, the Amazonian Indians created a waterproofing garment out of a milky liquid (rubber) collected from rubber trees. In the 1700s, European explorers visited the Americas and witnessed how the indigenous inhabitants waterproofed their garments using a rudimentary technique and rubber.

While raincoats have evolved over millennia, using various waterproof materials and techniques, the first modern waterproof raincoat was invented in 1824 after Scottish chemist Charles Macintosh patented a new tarpaulin fabric called “India rubber cloth,” which was made by sandwiching a core of rubber softened by naphtha between two pieces of fabric. Charles intended to produce a fabric that would shelter the wearer from rain while yet allowing the water to pass through. Many tailors were hesitant and uninterested in using his novel material. Charles started his own business and then added vulcanized rubber to the coat.
