Raincoats: a summer must-have for all South Africans

With the summer months fast approaching, did you know that South Africa is mostly a summer rainfall country?


Unexpected rainstorms are the norm in South Africa!


During summer, most of the country experiences sudden, unexpected and heavy downpours that can last several minutes. Anyone caught unawares in a summer rainstorm will know how inconvenient it is when you don’t have shelter, an umbrella or a raincoat with you.


The good news is that with a little preparation, you don’t have to become soaking wet every time there is a thunderstorm. You could always carry an umbrella around with you, but these are an inconvenient and many people often lose their umbrellas after leaving them accidentally in taxis, buses and shops.


A raincoat is your natural choice for protection against the rain.


So, what is the solution? Well, a raincoat is the obvious choice when it comes to protecting you and your family from the rain!


Unlike umbrellas, raincoats are very easy to carry around with you everywhere you go. Many can be compactly folded up into a small object and placed in your handbag or pocket in case you need it.


Here at Coat Corner, we sell a wide range of stylish and waterproof raincoats that are suitable for the whole family. Whether you are looking for a raincoat that is lightweight and easy to carry, one that is elegant and will look great with whatever you are wearing, or you simply want a cost-effective option, we have exactly what you need!


Our collection of high-quality raincoats will last you for many years to come and your raincoat will become your loyal companion each summer.


Raincoats offer you more than just protection against the rain.


While raincoats have been designed to protect you from the rain, they also have some other great uses.


For example, because they are lightweight and not heavy at all (like winter coats), raincoats are ideal for those times in spring and summer when there is a chill in the air, and you need an extra layer. They double up as a warm top and provide you with warmth.


Many South Africans start work early and have to walk to local transport routes early in the mornings. Even though it may be summer, there can still be a chill in the air. Instead of carrying around a jersey with you (which can take up a lot of space), why not use your raincoat which is more compact and will also protect you against rain? This makes so much more sense!


The evenings can also sometimes be chilly and if you have a raincoat on you, this won’t be a problem at all!


If you would like to kit your family out this summer, why not pay Coat Corner a visit? We are conveniently located in Kempton Park, Springs and Benoni and are close to all the major transport routes. We also offer plenty of safe parking and our store associates are always ready to help!
