Raincoats refer to raincoats made of waterproof fabric. Waterproof fabrics for raincoats include adhesive, oilcloth and plastic film. The fabrics for manufacturing the raincoats are waterproof and breathable, such as special nylon and gore-tex. A breathable raincoat allows the moisture to evaporate from the raincoat, therefore increasing its comfort.
An umbrella is a tool for shading the sun, rain or snow. It is usually made of oil paper, oil cloth or plastic cloth.
