raincoat definition and meaning

What is a "raincoat"?

A raincoat is a type of outerwear garment that is designed to protect the wearer from rain and other wet weather conditions. Raincoats are typically made from waterproof or water-resistant materials, such as Gore-Tex or PVC, and feature a hood, pockets, and other functional elements to keep the wearer dry and comfortable. They can come in a range of styles and designs, from classic and traditional to modern and trendy, and may be worn as a standalone jacket or as a layering piece over other clothing. Raincoats are a practical and essential item of clothing for anyone living in a rainy climate, and are also popular for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and fishing.
