Reader Karin asked a great question. What did women wear in very wet climates? With all my research on warm winter coats and boots, I neglected to talk about the difficulty of staying dry in rainy weather. Or perhaps it was because a thick wool coat did a pretty good job of providing both warmth and dryness except in extreme rain. The rubberized cloth was usually sewn with a top cloth, like a lining, of wool or cotton. In the ad below, Bombazine, a cotton fabric with a rubberized inner surface was used for making raincoats and rain hats. It came in both a smooth and textured finished like tweed or spun wool.
